Presentation Title: Innovation and Applied Engineering in the Mining Industry: Two Case Studies
A brief commentary on innovation in the mining industry will be followed by an overview of two recent innovative solutions, one in use and one in development. A Borehole shaft system was an innovative approach that has now been installed at the Young Davidson mine and is deemed as a success by all. Injection Hoisting was a winner at the #Disrupt Mining competition in 2017 and is under development at this time. The focus of the talk will be on the challenges and progress of development and application of each innovation.
