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:

In a bid to reduce its reliance on traditional fuels, the mining sector is starting to electrify operations. Although widespread electrification of mining equipment is not expected until well into the next decade, many miners are already partnering with equipment manufacturers and integration providers on electrification projects. We look at some of the leading developments in Australia.  

Elsewhere in technology, we find out how the rapidly evolving robotics sector will change the talent requirements of the mining industry, which is facing a severe skills shortage and struggling to attract professionals. We also speak to the scientists behind breakthrough ore processing research that uses engineered proteins instead of chemicals to sort rare earth elements, promising a cleaner and less power-hungry alternative.

As the Australian mining sector continues to feel the impact of the global nickel price crash, we look at responses from industry and government and ask what the path to recovery looks like for nickel producers in the country.  

We also hear from GlobalData’s analysts about what the proposed BHP/Anglo American merger could mean for the global copper market, and find out which mining giants are going head-to-head for the lead in iron ore production.
