Innovation and Sustainability: Stainless Steel Solutions for The Mining Industry

Top 10 Mining Solutions Companies in Australia - 2022

Mining companies require interdependent engines to drive a transformative change. Automated mining equipment and technologies stands out in this regard for improving the productivity and efficiency of mining operations. With the help of AI, ML, and autonomous technologies, workers’ exposure to dangerous underground and surface operations are also reducing.

At this pace, more automated solutions making its way into the mining market, and the industry is expected to grow to $2,737.39 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 8.3 percent.

One trend that is potentially boosting mine safety is drone technology. Drones have a variety of uses in the mining industry, including mine surveys, inventory management, stockpiling estimating, and hotspot identification, among others. Mine surveying can be done using drones to provide detailed information about the sites before mining projects and document their progress to visualize changes in the site over time. They are being used for mine assessment to offer comprehensive knowledge about the sites before the commencement of mining operations and to chronicle their progress to visualize site alterations over time.

To put the spotlight on other key developments in the industry, Metals and Mining Review illustrates how the mining engineering space is leveraging the different advancements in mining. This edition also features thought leadership articles from subject matter experts. Some of the exclusive insights are authored by Paulo Novaes, Industrial Operations Director at Aperam South America, Dorothea “Thea” Soule, Chief Commercial Officer at Ecobat, D. Mark Douglass, Business Development Manager, Additive Solutions at Lincoln Electric, and Serge Gaudin, Director, Sustainability and Strategy at Novelis. They shed light on greenhouse gas emission and capturing neutrality, the action of extracting and reclaiming elements from waste and putting them back to use, and maximizing the quantity and quality of aluminium available for recycling.

In this edition of Metals and Mining Review, we also bring to you the story of the top mining engineering service companies. In the list, the story of Matrix Design Group emphasizes the value of its best-in-class, mining sector-regulated, and operations-friendly applications to enable miners to mitigate worker safety and supply chain-related challenges. We also share the story of Miller Contracting Services, an innovative company that approaches each project with an out-of-the-box attitude aimed at efficiency, higher quality, and safer job sites.
