Key mining challenges

At Logicalis, we collaborate with mining companies worldwide, frequently addressing one or more of the following challenges:

Safety challenges in mining operations

Mining firms encounter a multitude of safety hurdles stemming from the perilous environment inherent in their activities, such as structural collapses, equipment malfunctions, and exposure to toxic materials.

The presence of heavy machinery in remote areas intensifies these risks, compounded by dependence on subcontractors and the fluidity of safety regulations.

Addressing these challenges necessitates a holistic strategy that incorporates technology, protocols, and a proactive attitude toward risk management. Enhancing metrics like the total recordable injury frequency rate (TRIFR) and lost time injury frequency rate is pivotal in this endeavor.

Cost optimisation in mining operations

Mining enterprises grapple with the complexities of cost optimization attributed to variables such as volatile commodity prices, escalating energy and labour expenditures, and deteriorating infrastructure. Moreover, distant operational sites escalate transportation outlays.

Striking a balance between cost-effectiveness, safety, and environmental considerations holds paramount importance. Embracing sustainable methodologies and integrating technological advancements offer avenues for alleviating these obstacles, fostering sustained profitability over time.

The key is knowing when and how, to address emerging mining technologies that can reduce ongoing costs and offer opportunities for automation and related benefits.

Sustainability challenges in mining

Mining companies face sustainability challenges intertwined with cost optimisation needs. This is often compounded due to the mines hard to reach or difficult locations requiring additional resources to access the site. Balancing economic viability with environmental and social concerns is key, requiring investments in sustainable practices despite potential initial cost increases.

However, embracing sustainability can lead to long-term benefits like improved efficiency and stakeholder relations, ensuring the industry's resilience.

How can we address these challenges


Reducing injuries, improving the Total Recordable Injury Frequency Rate (TRIFR), reducing the Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate, workplace fatalities and reducing safety related risks are of paramount importance. At Logicalis, we offer specialised global solutions to help address these challenges:
