Australia-Based Tech Firms Team Up to Make Mining Safer

Must Read

The Australian mining industry is booming thanks to the demand for precious metals and stones. With the rise in demand, mining companies are actively looking for ways to produce more supply. But as hazardous work, the industry is making conscious efforts to ensure the safety of its employees.

Working in the mines is a challenging task. Many consider mining a hazardous job, but thankfully, several companies are working tirelessly to ensure the safety of miners. GeoMoby, a mining location tech company, recently partnered with Digital Terrain.

The partnership produced a product that can help underground miners monitor their environmental conditions as they work below the surface. Digital Terrain has created the RDI-EMS, a real-time technology for environmental monitoring systems.

The RDI-EMS can monitor underground mines’ temperature, humidity, gases and dust. Mathieu Paul, director of GeoMoby, added that “temperature and potentially lethal gases, such as carbon monoxide or methane, can easily be remotely monitored, recorded, and alerts triggered if needed.”

The director added that GeoMoby provides an all-in-one visibility platform capable of real-time monitoring of assets and people. “Essentially, Digital Terrain has the technology to monitor many conditions – from levels of gases, such as oxygen, to the temperature in underground mines – and GeoMoby has the technology to use Digital Terrain’s data, from its recording devices, to use that information to trigger alarms if necessary.”

The mining industry is seeing many technological advancements not only in safety but also in sustainability. As the world becomes more conscious of its global footprint, so do big mining firms. 

A good example is Red 5 Limited’s approach to managing its water consumption.

Red 5 is a gold producer, and extracting these precious metals requires considerable water. The company invested in advanced water recycling and treatment facilities to reduce water consumption by 30% and consequently lessen its global water footprint.
