The GIM Channel 20: PDAC 2018 series featuring David Eden from Kinross Gold

In our latest GIM Channel episode, we’re joined by David Eden, Director, Technical Strategy at Kinross Gold Corporation and Joe Makori, Business Development Analyst from acQuire. This podcast was recorded from the Trade Show floor at one of the largest mineral exploration conferences in the world – PDAC 2018. Our guests joined The GIM Channel to talk about upcoming trends in mineral exploration and technology as we shift towards the digital mine.

Show Notes

We discuss…

  • The value and buzz around attending industry events such as PDAC.
  • The latest trends in the mining industry as it moves towards the digital mine.
  • How greater streams of data from different sources can lead to greater optimisation across the entire mining value chain.

Well, one thing that we see … there’s the use of ever larger data sets, there’s more kinds of data available…and there’s just a lot more information out there. What that allows us to do, in principle, is to optimise things across the whole value chain.” – David Eden

  • Whether the mining industry will start to rapidly adopt new technologies and innovations.
  • Newer technologies appearing in the mining space and how these are being tested by companies, such IBM Watson.
