The digital transformation of the mining sector is well underway. In a recent survey, 99 per cent of mining company decision makers said technology and innovation were ‘critical’ to their organisation’s survival (Gleeson, 2021).

For many organisations, opportunities for insight and innovation are being missed, especially when it comes to the minerals processing segment of the mining value chain. So why is this happening? And what can be done?

In this first article of a two-part series recently published by AusIMM, our Managing Director John Vagenas discusses some of the challenges and outlines the fundamentals of digital transformation in helping mining organisations achieve their goals.
