Raw material extraction - smart and digital
The areas of digitization, automation, robotics and sensor technology are playing an increasing role in mining as well. Thus, the classic image of the mining industry is changing. Drones can fly in underground mines and record data. In the past, optimization was often only understood to mean cost reduction, but today state-of-the-art technologies make it possible to achieve productivity successes in order to increase mining volumes while at the same time reducing costs for energy and personnel.
Hydrogen-powered dump trucks, for example, are being tested in the world's largest platinum mine and could one day become standard in mining. Platinum is an indispensable material in hydrogen technology.
Sibanye-Stillwater - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCqXqX-wJ0o, for example, has this in its platinum and palladium projects in South Africa and the USA. Sibanye-Stillwater also has its eye on another important future raw material, lithium, in Finland. In addition, the company is a major gold producer.
Drones offer enormous opportunities in the mining sector. Not only the exploration, surveying or mapping of deposits, but also the observation and monitoring of projects can be effectively designed with the flying helpers. Lithium is not only on the radar at Sibanye-Stillwater, at Millennial Lithium - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qcUFIc6tm8 - everything revolves around the sought-after raw material for electric mobility. The company's lithium projects are located in the lithium triangle in Argentina and score with best battery quality. At Millennial Lithium's Pastos Grandes lithium project, the pilot plant recently achieved a purity of 99.96 percent for the lithium carbonate produced.
