Mining Mega Trends and Their Impact to your Organisation's Resilience

Numerous mega trends are impacting the mining industry, making an effective resilience program more important than ever to ensure that operations continue as intended. From ESG considerations, through to the use of advanced technologies such as Internet of Things devices, AI, and digital twins, as well as workplace safety, volatility in commodity markets, and the spectre of Covid-19 still looming. Each mega trend has a different impact that needs managing correctly, with a one-size-fits-all approach insufficient. This white paper identifies the mega trends affecting mining businesses, while exploring the opportunities, risks, and implications for operational resilience, with expert insight from Dynamiq on the best practices and approaches to improve business outcomes.

The gold deposit is located 90km northeast of Tonopah, Nevada.

Harris has executed a wide range of drill programmes for various projects for both major and junior mining companies throughout the Americas.

Barrian Mining CEO and founder Maximilian Sali said: “We are very excited that preparations to drill have started at Bolo for our summer drill program, especially as gold hits a new six year high.

“We are confident in Harris’s experience in Nevada to handle our summer drill program and the rig chosen will allow us to drill our high priority target to a depth of around 500m, where geophysics has shown a potential mineralised anomaly that could prove to be continued mineralisation at depths well beyond any previous drill holes on this property.”

A modified Schramm T685 track drill will be used for the Bolo RC drill programme.

Powered by a 550 HP 14 litre Detroit Diesel, the drill uses a 1,050 x 500 Sullair rotary screw compressor. The rig is mounted on a hydraulically driven Sherman M4A3 horizontal boogey prime mover track carrier.

The Schramm T685 is capable of drilling to depths of up to 2,000ft (600m). The track-mounted drill rig will be able to easily travel across the terrain at the Bolo Gold Project, causing minimal surface disturbance, increased efficiency and reduced reclamation time.

The attached bulldozer blade and tilting deck in the T685 allow drilling in extremely steep locations.
