Top 20 Metals and Mining Technology Solution Companies - 2020
The two most frequently used method of removing ore from the bedrock—drilling and blasting—will undoubtedly stay relevant for many years to come. In other applications, such as shaft sinking and raise developments, mechanical rock excavation is already a competitive alternative. Recent developments in hard rock cutting have made substantial progress, and it is reasonable to believe that the mechanical methods will gain wider acceptance in the mid-term future. Particularly in narrow vein and reef mining, where more selective methods will create less waste rock, and hence less pollution, and at the same time lower dilution and hence increase the capacity of the mineral processing plant. Furthermore, continuous mining methods will give great economic benefits and also reduce the risk of accidents.
These technologies help companies to lower production costs, enhance worker and equipment productivity, discover new reserves, and extend the life of current mines. In this scenario, narrowing down on solutions that best fit the specific needs of a miner is often a time consuming and complex task. In our selection, we looked at the vendor’s capability to provide the technology solutions to Mining Industry, keeping a strong focus on how they address their customer’s occupational health, safety, and environmental concerns. A distinguished panel of CEOs, CIOs, CMOs, VCs, analysts, and the CIO Review editorial board has selected top players from over three hundred companies.
