Weightometers?

Good morning all.

You all know in the Mining Industry we get measured on all our KPI's.

Currently at our mine we have a problem with ore delivering to the plant.We only have one weightometer at the end of our main belt system which means the more pressure you put on your employees the more disonesty you get. The traditional weightometers that get installed underneath the belt is to expensive and we are looking for something else that is cheaper and easy to install, ea. a type of…

BULK EMULSION IN UNDERGROUND MINING

Hi people around the world

I hope you and your family are safe.

I am working in a research about the application of bulk emulsion in underground mining, I read a lot of information about it and I hope you can help me with your opinions about its application in different mining methods and two question which are : 

What is the three best adavantages of this explosive ?

and

What is the best advance per blast that you obtained from its…

Why Are Tailings Such A Hot Topic?

Last year we started Mining Now and there was a huge focus on technology on the mining and ore processing side. This year it really has shifted into tailings. 3 of my last 4 guests have focused on tailing.

Here are a couple I think are worth the watch and would like your feedback.

Autonomous Haulage - Business Case

Results indicate that cut-offs for the application are presently in excess of 12 Mtpa of total earthmoving. All of the current implementations of an AHS are based in mines that exceed this amount of total material moved.
Truck count cut-off thresholds vary by payload capacity, but a minimum of six to eight trucks is generally required. In its present form, an AHS is therefore not likely to be applicable to all surface mines as scale is a key factor.

The mining boom and political risk

VANCOUVER: After a nine-year lull, investors are fast-taking notice of the once-neglected precious-metals sector. Gold was among 2019’s best-performing asset classes and it was only days into the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic before the metal regained its USD 1,700/oz footing from a low of $1,471.

On 21 April, Bank of America predicted a gold price of $3,000 per ounce within 18 months suggesting that AU could continue to outperform even if the Covid bear-market continues. In line…

I appreciate the way Emmanuel explains exactly what is the difference between geostatistics and machine learning in a way that is applicable to mining. In particular, this section lays out how the two will come together to be essential for the future of mining.
 

“Recent advances in cloud computing may be allowing geostatistics to crunch more data, faster, but its merging with machine learning techniques that will continue to be the most exciting development in the…
