Mining in South Africa is in the doldrums, mines are deep and a mix of shrinking reserves, rising labour and electricity costs, Investors now need to shift their priorities and start looking at full Automation of Mines!
Mining smarter, not harder is the only way to go from here onwards!
Imagine it! Wouldn't it just be great to cut out the Reef bearing ore and leave the waste behind, like taking the ham out of a sandwich? The benefits one can achieve would be mind boggling!!

Our novel Mining Concept could become the disruptor of this century .... Have a look see...
