How do these new technologies assist the mining industry to become more environmentally sustainable? This was the focus of the event, New Technologies: The future of mining in the Americas.

WHAT IS GREEN TECHNOLOGY?
Green technology refers to technology that restricts or reverses the effects of human activity on Earth.

In mining, green technology refers to technology that will reduce carbon emissions in operations and mitigate adverse environmental effects. It has the use of metals and minerals that encourage a transition to low-carbon technology like solar panels or wind power.

HOW DOES TECHNOLOGY IMPACT MINING OPERATIONS?
Technology may have a range of effects on mining operations, such as security and productivity, environmental protection, and opportunities for ladies.

Technological improvements in mining will also be making operations more effective. This can be found in the use of robotics operating 24 hours per day, real-time observation of metals and minerals via mines and processing plants, and using simulations in the mine design phase to examine unique solutions before implementation.

Through enhanced waste management efforts, tailings are being processed more efficiently. The mining industry will also play a significant role in the circular market.

Technology in mining helps remove the excuse of the sector being too dangerous for women because more tasks will be operated at a distance from the stone face. We expect to see employment gender gaps reduced thanks to technology.

WHAT SHOULD MINING COMPANIES DO WHEN USING NEW TECH?
The mining industry should carefully consider new tendencies in traceability and cooperation when adopting innovative technologies.

Consumers are demanding sustainability, not just from producers but along the whole supply chain, from the moment the metal or mineral is found to as it appears in the products they purchased.

Collaborating with other businesses, like universities, governments, and civil society, can also be significant. Businesses are realizing that universities may bring invaluable insight and research, the government can provide incentives, providers can offer innovative offers, and buyers may clarify their requirements.

Nations like Chile are using the cluster way of group multi-sectoral organizations together–like a college, mining company and government department–to attain the benefits of technology. Inclusive work with various actors within those industries is important to implementing technology in mining sensibly.

Mining companies also must think about the social impacts of new technologies–especially those, like automation, that replace low- and medium-skilled workers. Typically filled by natives, those tasks are an important part of the social license to operate. The mine of the future will most likely have fewer total jobs, and the new jobs created will probably be beneficial for communities affected by mining activity. IGF is working on those problems with its New Tech, New Deal project.

HOW CAN COUNTRIES IMPROVE ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY?
This foreign investment is coming with more technology to improve productivity throughout the mining concession period. Governments will need to remain current from the latest innovations and modifications brought to their authorities to make sure that increased productivity includes balanced with social and economic benefits

On a positive note, authorities will have the ability to ensure high environmental standards within mining operations by incentivizing specific technology. This may include giving targeted tax incentives to mining companies, generating research and education opportunities for their neighborhood work on the technology, and facilitating the achievement of local intellectuals.
