Modern Mining November 2019 cover

Shaft sinking is one of the most expensive, time consuming and risky tasks in mining. If the process could be entirely mechanised it would represent a major leap forward in mining technology. Master Drilling has accepted the challenge of creating a mechanised system and in recent weeks, as we explain in this issue, has been trialling elements of its proposed solution – the Shaft Boring System or SBS – at a site near its Fochville headquarters.

Modern Mining October 2019

Among the projects featured in this issue are two in West Africa. One is the Yaouré gold project in Côte d’Ivoire, which will be the third mine of Perseus Mining, and the other is the Tongo diamond project of Newfield Resources in Sierra Leone. Both are now into the construction phase. We also have coverage of the recent Africa Mining Summit in Gaborone, as well as an in-depth article on a rockfall protection solution at Foskor’s open-pit mine in Phalaborwa.

Modern Mining August 2019 cover

With the digitalisation of mining operations being the subject of intense discussion in the mining industry at the moment, we take a look in this issue at the Exxaro’s digital journey and also on the progress being made by Resolute on its highly advanced Syama Underground Mine in Mali.

Also covered in this issue are the Nokeng Fluorspar Mine of SepFluor and the Tiris uranium project in Mauritania. Nokeng, officially opened earlier this month (August), is South Africa’s newest mine, while Tiris is regarded by its developer, Aura Energy, as one the most attractive uranium projects in the world at the current time due to its low capex and operating costs.
