How can companies capitalize on technology investments in Mining?

GlobalData’s mine-site technology surveys investigate the degree to which mines across the globe have invested in a range of technologies, spanning mine management software, predictive maintenance, drones, autonomous vehicles, collision avoidance, wearables, remote control vehicles and more. In this report, we compare the overall investment trends by technology as well as by region and key country, by type of miner – major or non-major – and by mine type. We also compare results from the most recent survey, conducted between December 2021 and February 2022, with previous surveys. Have a look at our report and gain insights into:
  • Which technologies have been most widely invested in and implemented
  • Which mines have the highest penetration of technologies
  • Which technologies have seen an increase in the level of investment over the last two years
  • Comparison between surface and underground mines, in terms of level of investment in technology

Valid for a term of three years, the contract requires Monadelphous to provide services for shutdowns, outages and minor capital works at BHP’s Mt Whaleback, Jimblebar, Eastern Ridge, Mining Area C and Yandi mine sites. The company also has an option to secure two one-year extensions.

The contract is set to enhance the relationship between the parties. Over the past two decades, Monadelphous has served BHP on both construction and maintenance projects.

Monadelphous Group managing director Rob Velletri said: “The award of this contract is a testament to our reputation for delivering customer-focused engineering solutions and maintaining a high standard of safety and quality.

“We look forward to further developing our relationship with BHP over coming years, growing our operational footprint in the Pilbara and continuing to strengthen our long-term commitment to the region and the communities in which we operate.”

“The award of this contract is a testament to our reputation for delivering customer-focused engineering solutions.”

Monadelphous operates under two divisions, Engineering Construction, and Maintenance and Industrial Services.

In a separate development, BHP and its joint venture partner reached a final settlement agreement with Brazilian prosecutors regarding compensation over dam failure at the Samarco mine in November 2015.

Nineteen people were killed in the accident, which is regarded as Brazil’s largest ever environmental disaster. Besides, the disaster also caused large scale property destruction in Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo states.

The settlement deal involves compensation payments for affected people.
