The new Australia edition of our digital magazine is out now – you can read it online for free. Here are this month’s top stories:

Recent accidents have led to questions of how safety at Australia’s mines can be improved and accusations that safety reform has stalled. In this issue, we explore challenges to mining safety regulation in the country and look at the industry’s efforts to improve safety for mine workers through technology, policy and training.  

Australian miners were among the early adopters of automated mining equipment and many state governments have taken a proactive approach to safety regulation. We look at the state of autonomous mining in the country and what is next in the automation journey.

Miners in New South Wales are expanding existing coal projects, while in Queensland several large greenfield developments are in the pipeline – but all face challenges around funding and environmental regulation. We look at the prospects for coal expansion in an era of uncertainty. 

Meanwhile, the future of mining is rapidly evolving with new resource potential opening up on the ocean floor and in space. We check in on the prospects for deep-sea and extraterrestrial exploration. 

In technology, we speak to Green Gravity about its work converting disused mines into clean energy storage using digital twins, and look at the different types of robots used in mining and their benefits for operators.
