The mining industry has made many safety improvements in both surface and underground mines in recent years. New technologies, in large part, have made this possible. Examples of these include advanced mining software, slope monitoring tools, proximity detection and collision avoidance systems, and many more. With these technological advancements and improvements to safety protocols, the industry has reduced fatal accidents by 14% since the year 2000. Yet, with all this progress, there is always more to be done where safety is concerned, especially in the underground mining environment.

Each year Maptek selects a small group of computer science undergraduates from South Australia to participate in the intern program across the Adelaide software development teams.

Places in the annual intern program are highly sought after, and for good reason according to Program Lead Will Reid.

‘Maptek internships provide a unique opportunity to apply skills learned through their studies to software that helps the mining industry operate safely and efficiently,’ Reid said.

Coming up with new ideas is hard, coming up with new ideas that work is even tougher. Bringing those ideas to market introduces another dimension of production, distribution and commercial considerations.

Keen to collaborate with like-minded organisations around mining technology research, in 2019 Maptek joined the Integrated Mining Consortium funded by the Premier of South Australia. High on the agenda alongside finding innovative answers to intractable problems, was the need to identify key steps to bring those ideas to market where they can deliver value to industry.

When Maptek Global Strategy Managers from across the world gathered in Adelaide, South Australia recently it was the first time they had all been under the same roof. The pandemic prevented physical meetings in recent years, but didn’t stop strong collaboration through virtual channels among the nine managers of Maptek product and development strategy.
