Austmine 2019 Presentation: Metallurgical Systems
John Vagenas, Managing Director of Metallurgical Systems recently presented at the Austmine 2019 Conference & Exhibition in the Analytics, Data and Security: The Changing Winds session.
John gave an insightful presentation about the need to embrace digital within minerals processing, and the broader mining landscape.
He stated that the mining industry currently has two options: the blue pill or the red pill.
- Companies can opt for the blue pill and keep the status quo of operations. This would involve limited utilisation of available data, a lack of visibility of operations and little technological sophistication.
- Companies can choose the red pill and undertake a path of digital transformation. They can leverage a range of existing data sets and implement new processes to improve reliability, diagnose and investigate bottlenecks and boost efficiency.
Presenting a number of case studies from clients in the mineral processing field that demonstrated the value of utilising data, John made it abundantly clear that the red pill is the only option.
