Gold, Nickel, diamond, iron ore mines / Dugless 900 conveyor safety & productivity
 
02:07
Australian innovators Dugless Machinery Company have designed & manufactured the patented Dugless 900 for mine site resource facilities. The concept has been 3 years in the development. Since full operation in December 2008 Dugless Machinery Company have been doing on site demonstration's for various large companies in the Pilbara region of Western Australia with resounding success and are looking beyond the boundaries of Australia. Every mine site has processing problem areas where manual handling is the only answer to these issues. This is where the Dugless 900 comes into the picture being the world's shortest remote controlled purpose built machine at only 560mm high. Manual handling can lead to unexpected work place injuries, costing the industry millions of dollars in payouts. Dugless takes out the human factor in this equation. Not only is it safe but it is also productive doing the work of at least 4 employees without shutting down the system thus making money and return on the investment is justified. The current video is only for demonstration purposes. More information and photo's can be forwarded via email if needed or contact our staff via the website.

Queensland Dragline: Moving a 3,000 ton giant in half the time
 
02:41
One of the largest mining companies in Queensland, Australia, faced a major challenge. It needed to move a 3,000-ton dragline excavator from one coal mine to another, almost 100 kilometers away. ‘Walking’ there would have caused significant wear-and-tear on the machine, and not allowed the company to take advantage of scheduled rail network shutdowns required to cross critical infrastructure. Mammoet was able to provide a safe, effective solution to load, move and unload the dragline using Self-Propelled Modular Transporters (SPMTs), ensuring the company did not lose out on productivity for this vital piece of mining equipment.

BCG's Ross Middleton on Productivity in Metals and Mining
 
03:03
BCG's Ross Middleton discusses three main challenges that companies face in the mining industry.
Underground: How to Improve Production & Operator Safety
 
08:19
Underground mines can be challenging and dangerous environments. Miners face a lack of fresh air, poor ventilation ad potential cave-ins as they work to access ore. Mining companies work diligently to ensure the safety of these workers, but dangers still exist. In this video, we’ll discuss the best way to protect underground workers: Removing them from the environment altogether. Using technologies like Cat MineStar™ Command for underground, miners can perform loading and dumping activities while located safely away in a remote operating station. In addition to improving safety, autonomous mining also delivers productivity improvements thanks to more accurate tunnel navigation and reduced downtime due to damage from contact with drive walls. We’ll hear a success story from a customer who is using Command for underground at a copper-gold mine in Australia.

How can mining companies reduce the risk and get faster ROI’s on their digital transformation?
 
07:01
We caught up with Murray Lyster, GM Minerals Solutions of Siemens at the 2018 International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC). A lot of people know about Siemens, but not necessarily because of its involvement in mining, in this video Murray shares Siemen’s primary offering in this space and then compares the challenges that mining face to other heavy industries they operate in. Murray then proceeds to explain how mining companies can reduce their risk and get faster ROI’s on their digital transformation. As well as how realistic alternative power supplies (such as renewable or hybrid) are for the mining industry and if they will ever become the norm, or always be an exception. IMARC returns to the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre from 28 - 31 October 2019. For more information please visit http://imarcmelbourne.com/ About IMARC The International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) is where global mining leaders connect with technology, finance and the future.

A Commitment to the Mining Industry
 
08:31
Today, the demand for mined materials is greater than at any other time in history. World development and increased urbanization are driving sustained dependence on minerals, metals and coal. Energy usage is expected to increase significantly in the coming decades—placing even more emphasis on supply, security, cost and environmental impact issues. As the demand for commodities grows, mining companies need a partner to support them in their efforts. A partner who understands the issues important to the mining industry — like safety, sustainability and productivity. And a partner with the equipment, technologies, end-to-end services and solutions to support their operations. Caterpillar is committed to being that partner.
Copper mines in Zambia - Straight through Africa
 
43:29
Trade is better than aid for Africa. They say. In a journey through copper thieves and mine barons in the north of Zambia, Bram Vermeulen investigates the truth behind that slogan. From a distance they look like ants, the hundreds of men digging holes in the rubble slopes of an old copper mine in Zambia. They are looking for copper ore in the walls of the enormous pit, without wearing helmets and without reinforcing the walls of their caves. Life-threatening, of course. But they find enough to live on. Is it legal, Bram asks. They laugh about it. No of course not. But the Chinese buyer does not really ask where they get their ore from. You just have to leave when the guards of the mine come. How different is it in a huge copper mine in full operation. Huge machines drive off and on. Sirens sound regularly, followed by explosions. Here, 300,000 tons of stone are moved every day, and the copper ore from it yields a profit of hundreds of millions of dollars a year. But it is a foreign company that raises that money. And if the productivity gets too low after about twenty years, the investors will move on. From the air it is easy to see how far-reaching it all is. The mine takes big chores out of the country and turns huge plains into a kind of lunar landscape. But other changes are also visible. Houses, schools, a golf course. Prosperity, therefore, emphasizes a mine boss. Seven years ago this was still a dull provincial town, and now look! A little further on the big changes are about to begin. There is a giant copper mine here, and for that an area of ​​no less than four hundred square kilometers is expropriated. The new owners promise economic prosperity. Did not a city like Johannesburg also start out as a simple mine? Naturally, people living in the area can not stay. They have worked the land for generations, but they can not show ownership documents. They have not been asked anything. They do get compensation for their houses, chickens and fruit trees, but not for the ground. "Everything under the ground is state property," says a representative of the mining company, "and that is what the state can rent out to us." Residents who do not want to leave are squatters who violate the law from that moment on. Even though they were born and lived there all their lives. Those former residents are moved to neat new houses outside the area. With toilet, and bigger than the previous house, but without land to grow food. Some of them seem satisfied with that. Most do not. 'In Africa, land has sentimental value. You are no one without land, 'says one of them. "So you're destroying these people. They will not pass on anything to the next generation. " Episode 6. Copper fever  For Africa, trade is better than aid, or so they say. On a journey to copper thieves and mine bosses, Bram Vermeulen investigates the truth behind the slogan.

JCIPP Forum: Saul Eslake - Australia's Productivity Challenge
 
01:10:32
http://www.jcipp.curtin.edu.au Presented on 14th April, 2011, by the John Curtin Institute of Public Policy, Curtin University. The one big blemish on Australia's otherwise remarkably good economic performance over the past decade has been the dramatic deterioration in our productivity performance. Relative to the United States, all of the gains we accrued in the 1990s, and more, have since been reversed. The consequences of the dramatic deterioration in Australia's productivity performance over the past decade have been masked, as they were in the 1950s, 1960s and early 1970s, by the combination of rapid population growth and a substantial improvement in the terms on which we trade with the rest of the world. But if we don't recognize, and reverse, the slide in our productivity performance, then when the current resources boom comes to an end (whenever that might be), Australia's economic future might look a lot more like the mid-1970s through the early 1990s than any of us would wish for.

Tony Abbott's Building Code
 
05:04
The Coalition’s proposed new Building Code strikes at the heart of the Australian way of life, undermining the fair go and basic human rights. The Code’s impact on working hours, job security, incomes and living standards, injuries and fatalities, opportunities for apprentices and older workers will devastate family life and our communities. The Code represents the most extreme intervention into the conduct of private business ever seen in Australia and threatens crippling penalties on lawfully operating companies. The Government says the Code is required to lift productivity in the construction industry. Yet the facts show that labour efficiency exceeds most other industries. In reality the Code will undermine productivity. Download a report on productivity in the construction industry by the Australia Institute here: https://www.etuvic.com.au/sites/etuvic.com.au/files/tb_33_productivity_in_the_construction_industry.pdf Help stop this ideological attack on more than 1 million hard-working Australians.

Learn how Suez Australia use drone surveying and Propeller, a drone data analytics platform, to improve their performance tracking on site. By using drone surveys on their landfill site at Hallam Road, Suez are able to see ongoing improvements to their compaction rates on site and calculate remaining airspace. Improving landfill compaction rates by a small percentage can save waste management companies, like Suez, millions of dollars.

A Commitment to the Mining Industry - Chinese (中国版本)
 
08:33
Today, the demand for mined materials is greater than at any other time in history. World development and increased urbanization are driving sustained dependence on minerals, metals and coal. Energy usage is expected to increase significantly in the coming decades—placing even more emphasis on supply, security, cost and environmental impact issues. As the demand for commodities grows, mining companies need a partner to support them in their efforts. A partner who understands the issues important to the mining industry — like safety, sustainability and productivity. And a partner with the equipment, technologies, end-to-end services and solutions to support their operations. Caterpillar is committed to being that partner.
