acQuire hosted a series of presentations at its booth 823 at this year’s PDAC Convention. The panel discussion, hosted on Tuesday 6 March, featured guest speakers Stan Wholley, CSA Global; Mike McClelland, Cameco; and Dave Eden, Kinross Gold. Hosted by acQuire’s Managing Director, Alison Atkins they discussed the topic: “What does the digital mine mean to you?”
Currently, the mineral exploration and mining industry’s main driver is the quest for greater efficiencies. These are technologically-driven through both automation and technology innovations.
Many companies are starting to shape their long-term strategies around the mine of the future. The term, “mine of the future,” is not only focused on production and mining; it also encompasses the entire mining value chain, from grassroots exploration, production, metallurgy, and through to rehabilitation and product commercialisation.
As companies start to build these strategies, what does this actually mean for geoscientific information management?
The panel discussion focuses on the key drivers and insights of the guest speakers on the digital mine, and what this means to them from a people, process and technology perspective.
