Technology is critical in building mines of the future and will ensure safety as well as create unique employment opportunities.
The initiative seeks what is needed to transform today’s fleet of mining vehicles into tomorrow’s new generation of cleaner, safer vehicles.

Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology revealed its future vision and concept for autonomous mining equipment at its Innovation in Mining Virtual Event on 29 September 2020.
The solar journey has not been limited to the facility’s buildings. Over the past year, it has also been extended to the homes of employees.
“Sandvik has spent the last year focusing on producing a raise boring machine capable of eliminating the challenges associated with raise boring."
