Mining 4.0 — The impact of new technology from a workplace perspective

Lööw, Joel; Abrahamsson, Lena; Johansson, Jan

ABSTRACT:

In this study, we try to illustrate what new technology can mean for the individual miner. We formulate the notion of Mining 4.0, where we attempt to create an image of how the future might look from a miner’s perspective and how mining companies might navigate their way to a future that works for all miners.
