Traditionally, the mining sector has lagged in adopting technology. Deviation from established practices is often viewed as unduly expensive.
Based in the international mining capital of Sudbury, Canada, The Centre for Smart Mining (CSM) de-risks and demystifies new technologies. Hundreds of companies are seeking entry to the mining sector and the CSM can be their gateway.
The CSM facilitates new technology adoption in the mining sector. We focus on mining technology companies as a main client base and the mining end users. Our areas of expertise include: digital technologies, underground communications, alternative tailings treatment technologies, and battery powered and connect mining vehicles.
