Productivity remains the number one operational risk in the mining sector particularly in the bulk commodities. To address the productivity gap, often the first choice to mine operators is to deploy some random digital solutions and still stick to the old conventional mining methods, citing lack of cost-benefit visibility. Digital technologies offer a gamut of solutions and distinct benefits, but, it is employing the most relevant technology to the company’s business model that is most crucial.

In a presentation to MINEX Europe 2019 on 25-27 June 2019 in Sofia, Bulgaria, Vladislav Trashliev, Director of Geology and Concessions at Geotechmin will discuss his company’s approach, which to deploy an ‘thinking-out-of-the-box mindset’ tailored to the specific needs of the company’s clients that will help them manage variability and hence improve productivity. Geotechmin has assisted in the development and performance of mines around the world and the presentation will demonstrate that there is no single “silver bullet” solution for all mine operations.
