Aus miners invest in technology to improve safety, manage costs

Australian miners were likely to increase investment in equipment-related technology over the next two years, advisory firm Timetric’s Mining Intelligence Center (MIC) revealed in its latest survey.

MIC pointed out on Wednesday that a number of Australian miners had already invested in environmental monitoring, fleet management and predictive maintenance technologies, with tyre monitoring, collision avoidance and remote control/machine automation to be the key areas for future investment.
