The data for our analysis have been aggregated through a global research effort, using basic desktop resources combined with qualitative interviews with operators and suppliers wherever possible. Each operation profile considers 13 categories: mine type, commodity, location, ownership, production, digitalisation programs/software, operation, commencement date, infrastructure, hardware, digitalisation drivers, digitalisation investment, and next steps/outlook. Each company/corporate profile considers: headquarters, listing, mine type, commodity, location, production, digitalisation programs/software, operation, commencement date, infrastructure, hardware, digitalisation drivers, digitalisation investment, and next steps/outlook.
