METS Tech Talk: Man and Machine - Leveraging Data for Business Value

Austmine’s METS Tech Talks Webinar Series will put the spotlight on the latest innovations and game-changing solutions set to transform the mining industry as we know it.

Our eighth session will focus on ‘Man and Machine - Leveraging Data for Business Value.’

The fourth industrial revolution is disrupting the mining industry as we know it. The tools are in place to change the day-to-day nature of mining, shifting from conventional, capital-intensive approaches to more streamlined, visible, predictive and controlled operations.

This webinar will showcase the latest mining technologies arising from digital transformation and industry 4.0. Presentations will include the use of digital simulation, advanced robotics and artificial intelligence in the mining value chain.


Crushability: Existing Data that Optimizes Blasting and Blending to Maximize Throughput    

Steven Putt, Director of Mining Software, DataCloud

The primary crusher is a reliable and continuous proxy for blast performance and predicts mill throughput. Tracking crushability' optimizes blasting and blending. Integrating geology, D&B, ore control, haulage, and primary crusher data in cloud-based software enables the right insights at the right time to alter plans according to incoming geology.

Integrating Discrete Data, Systems and People   

Pieter Strobos, Business Director, Process IQ

Pieter Strobos has a passion for integration of new technology.  Pieter is the business director for Process IQ, a METS company that aims to become the "Google" of Mining through innovation and collaboration with its stakeholders.  By developing highly effective sustainable solutions in minerals processing plants across the value chain, he believes that operations will be more adaptable and highly responsive to changes in our sector.  This in turn, will deliver long-term value and sustainable growth to our economy.

Automating Load-Haul-Dump Cycle Data Capture with Machine Vision and Deep Neural Networks   

Julian Lim, Technical Product Manager, MICROMINE 

Using machine vision and different sensors, we can improve the accuracy of cycle data collected from loaders, by removing the human element out of the data capture process. Choosing to use only generic sensors will allow this Machine Vision solution to be deployed at any mine using equipment from any manufacturer as many mines are run using mixed fleets.

Dragline Digital Twin   


Hayden Farrow, Digital Twin Product Manager, RedEye 

RedEye and BMA are developing Digital Twin technology that will provide better condition monitoring to more accurately predict failures, potentially reducing the downtime of a dragline by 60%. Digital Twin is a multi-dimensional digital representation of an as-built asset, collecting and analysing data and event-driven outcomes to optimise asset performance.


3D Visualisation and Digital Twins  

Scott Dumaresq, Queensland Manager, Sentient

Sentient has been using gaming technology to create Digital Twins and visualise data since 2008. This presentation gives an overview of the technology and some of our case studies.


AMC Geometallurgy: Combining Domain Expertise and Machine learning  

Ian Lipton, Geometallurgy Practice Leader, AMC Consultants

Mining and ore processing systems are designed and operated in an environment of orebody uncertainty. This leads to non-recoverable losses through incorrect decision-making and mismatches between plant operating settings and the characteristics of the ore feed. Geometallurgy and machine learning provide the tools for obtaining leverage from low cost data to predict orebody characteristics in three dimensions and reduce orebody uncertainty. The key to successfully unlocking this opportunity is domain expertise.

METS Tech Talk Series:

During this period, it is critical to ensure that your clients, partners and prospects know you are active, operating and innovating. While this short-term disruption will impact our industry greatly, there is a range of long-term challenges that mining faces to ensure prosperity and sustainability.

Fortunately, Australian METS companies are rising to the challenge with cutting-edge technologies and game-changing solutions to tackle the most pressing industry issues. Our new Austmine Tech Talks webinar series will be an online showcase of the best new innovations set to transform the mining industry as we know it.

Austmine Members will have 5-minutes to present, letting fellow METS members and mining peers know about their latest innovation and how it will make a difference to the industry.  

Each webinar will run for 45 minutes, with 6 Tech Talks and 15 minutes for audience Q&A at the conclusion of the session.
