The commissioning of a custom designed dual-arm robotic welding system at the Austin Engineering facility in Perth is expected to lift efficiency, productivity and output; benefits that underpin the specialty customised designs the company manufactures for the mining industry worldwide.

Shotcreting plays an essential part of today’s mining industry; especially in underground mines where a roof collapse is a real risk that needs to be mitigated.

An integral part of any shotcreting operation is the cement, which needs to be of a high quality to ensure safety standards are met in mining operations.

Comiskey Mining Services purchased the latest Caterpillar 24 Motor Grader from Hastings Deering in January this year, making it the first company in the country to reap the rewards of the new machine.

Covering the exploration and mining of minerals in Australia is no easy feat.

Powering a minesite requires a huge amount of energy, with multiple transformers required to distribute energy around site.

Copper is assuming an increasingly important role as the commodity assisting the transition to a low carbon-emitting world.

Australia is a big country and its minesites are often remote, making getting from one location to another quite time consuming, especially if you’re having to travel by road or commercial airline.

Earth shattering technologies, digital efficiency, and the human element of mining are some of the forward-looking themes to be covered at Austmine 2019: Mining Innovation – The Next Horizon conference set for Brisbane in a couple of weeks.
