Leading the journey

More than 200 leaders of the Latin American mining industry met in Santiago, Chile, for Digitalization in Mining – Through the Rock, a two-day summit hosted by Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology.

The seminar focused on leading-edge mining technology and the digitalization journey facing today’s mining operations.

Day one featured speakers from mining companies from around the Americas, as well as leaders in mining technology, process optimization and automation. The speakers detailed the benefits their companies have gained by implementing automation and process optimization, as well as the mindset it took to get there.

On the second day participants travelled to Sandvik’s Santiago facility to participate in live remote visits to Sandvik customer sites around the world.

“Digitalization is helping companies to grow and optimize their operations,” says Patricio Apablaza, vice president, Andean and South Cone for Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology.

“Our partners participated because they know that this is critical to making their mines sustainable for the future.”
