15 Mar Skills Migration for Remote Drill Operators
An anonymous case study reviews change management strategies adopted by a copper mine whose on-site drill operations were moved to a control centre. It outlines how the company successfully overcame knowledge gaps experienced by many employees whose roles were upskilled, with zero job loss encountered.
This case study is for the Autonomous Mining Skills Migration Case Study library. To achieve the desired operating efficiency and productivity benefits of an autonomous operation, companies require new skillsets in the workforce. By providing examples around communication strategy, change management, training, skills pathways, and lessons learned based on lived experience, these case studies aim to assist the industry in creating a workforce that will enable autonomous mining.
