Top 20 Metals and Mining Technology Companies - 2018

A slew of technological advancements and garnering innovations are pushing various process operations on and off the mining industry. Starting from locating ores to their processing, emphasis is being laid on increasing the efficiency of the process through smart investments while maintaining the safety and security of miners.

AI powered robotic devices are employed to a range of mining tasks like drilling, blasting, loading, hauling and ore sampling. These devices not only increase efficiency but also aid in rescuing trapped miners through sensors and thermal cameras that locate survivors, hauling food, air packs and medicine to those trapped inside. Remotely operated trucks that combine robotics with IoT are used to transfer ore more efficiently saving a considerable amount of work hours. Adding to increasing traceability and visibility, IoT platform also enhances the mining operation through computers that observe, indentify and understand the different processes involved without human interference. Other technologies like 3D scanning, airborne gravity gradiometer and automated drilling also aid in ensuring mining personnel safety, discovering new reserves and extending the life of current reserves. In this dynamic scenario, narrowing down the solutions that compliments the specific needs of a miner is a time-consuming and lengthy process.

To help business providers in selecting promising mining solutions, a distinguished panel of prominent CEOs, CIOs, VCs, and analysts, along with CIOReview’s editorial board has assessed and shortlisted the companies offering pioneering technology solutions in mining industry. This listing gives a comprehensive understanding of solutions that can be implemented to optimize your business process.
