Powering Remote Mines

When it comes to off-the-grid solutions providing affordable, sustainable energy with little or no carbon footprint compared to traditional sources such as coal, oil and gas, most people think of technologies such as solar being applied primarily to household consumers. While cleaner sources of energy such as solar and wind power are proving to have solid applications in residential settings in both urban and rural areas, it is no small irony that one of the greatest producers of power – Australia’s mining industry – is also a great consumer of energy.

It’s been some time since ‘alternative’ energy became mainstream. Today’s technicians search for efficient (and cost-efficient) means of producing alternative or renewable energy as assiduously as alchemists once sought means of turning base metals into gold…

Race to the Bottom

With all the speculation and paranoia surrounding the potential exhaustion of land based mineral deposits, as well as the increasing costs associated with locating and extracting any deposits which remain, the most innovative and forward thinking companies and countries are racing to the bottom (of the ocean, that is!), where the potential for abundant and untapped deposits of high quality lie in wait.

The Future of Mining

From Robot Trucks to Fibre Optics The Future of MiningBy Robert Hoshowsky View in E-Magazine If Austrian-born actor and bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger isn’t the embodiment of the future, he certainly has helped us realise what technology has in store for mankind. Through films like the Terminator series and Total Recall, the not-so-distant future is depicted in often unequal parts glorious and dystopian. The lesson in these and countless other futuristic films and novels such as George Orwell’s oft-referenced Nineteen Eighty-Four and Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World is strikingly similar: technology can be a great thing, as long as we are […]

Solar Energy in Mining

Across the world, renewable solar photovoltaic energy has widely been gaining traction as a reliable energy source for large electricity consumers. Of course, while renewable energy is an important aspect of environmental conservancy efforts, it can also offer incredible cost savings – especially in expensive regions which see dry, clear skies. Places, of course, like most of Australia, where the mining sector operates throughout rural locations, frequently off-grid, to high cost at the expense of mining companies.

Strategic Resources

There are 17 classified rare earth elements, many of which have strategic purposes. Rare in name only, these elements are anything but scarce as they are found all over the world. The challenge rare earth elements pose is during extraction, as they exist in low concentrations and are difficult to separate from one another.
