Autonomous Mining Workshop Highlights Industry Values

The Autonomous Mining Working Group held a workshop during the CIM Convention in May with the aim to collect feedback from participants on the industry’s highest priorities surrounding the realization of autonomous mining. Within the three sessions, attendees identified the value proposition, journey to automation, and examples of transitioning mines as top priorities for the guideline’s purpose, and a maturity template, baseline study of the current process vs. autonomous and a focus on available technology as priorities for the scope.
