Smart Mining Market Driver:

Growing Need to Keep Workforce Safe to Fuel Growth of Smart Mining Market

The mining area is one of the hazardous places for people to work, and the security of the workers is a crucial issue worldwide. For example, when mines fail, both workers and those around the mines are affected or even lose their lives. For instance, according to the Mine Safety and Health Administration, seven miners died in the first six weeks of 2023 due to an electrocution incident. An overhead power line came in contact with two truck drivers at the mining site. The drivers exited the cabs of their trucks and came in contact with electrical energy. Workers conducting manual readings in remote mining sites are at risk of harming their lives. Smart mining technologies play a crucial role in enhancing workers' safety. Implementing automated mobile assets such as vehicles, wireless gadgets, remote sensors, and real-time data analytics in mining sites reduces the need for an on-site workforce. Automated mobile assets detect gas leaks, monitor ground stability, and assess real-time equipment health. This data helps miners and operators to address safety issues, preventing accidents and fatalities proactively. Remote sensors and real-time data analytics provide a complete view of the mining environment, which, in turn, increases the protection level of the workers. Additionally, automation systems improve safety by reducing the need for workers to be in high-risk areas. Predictive analysis and observations performed by operational intelligence (OI) solutions enable mining operators to anticipate and avoid dangerous accidents. Workforce monitoring, with the help of wireless wearable devices, often facilitates operators to efficiently organize their staff and keep workers away from the risky areas of the mining site.

Smart mining technologies help minimize the threat and damage caused during mining operations. IoT is utilized in mining to add sensors to mining equipment to communicate and monitor the data in real time and keep the workers safer. Sensors can also be attached to the workers' clothing to monitor their health by tracking and transmitting data about their physical health and condition. They can also raise alerts at the time of accidents. Major global mining companies such as Rio Tinto and Boliden are integrating IoT to remotely monitor and control mining operations. For instance, in 2020, Boliden, a Sweden-based mining company, partnered with Cisco and Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology to improve their mining operations. Boliden uses Cisco's IoT technology and Sandvik's AutoMine for autonomous mining equipment & OptiMine software to analyze and optimize production. These technologies help Boliden mining engineers to operate the machinery remotely and safely from a control room. Smart mining supports miners to easily and safely handle heavy machines, equipment, vehicles, and devices used in a mine site. Furthermore, the strong commitment to protecting its workforce and adhering to strict safety regulations in the mining industry has accelerated the adoption of smart mining solutions, driving the smart mining market.
