From the perspective of mine owners, the use of machines has the potential to improve efficiency. Unlike human labour, machinery does not need breaks for lunch and to sleep. This has the potential for continuous labour, without the risk of fatigue.
While the benefits are obvious for mine owners, questions remain about the future for on-site labourers. While some suggest that they can be up-skilled to work in control rooms, others fear the jobs of controlling the machinery on the mine could be shipped off-site.
As the future of mining continues to evolve, continue to look towards equipment companies like Resolute Equipment to stock and carry the latest and reconditioned equipment and parts and stay at the forefront of the discussion on mining automation.
