Zero Waste Mining

What do you think of when you think of a mine? What would you say if we told you that mining was actually one of the most technologically advanced industries in Australia, and companies such as Rio Tinto are working to develop mines that not only run off renewable energies, but also leaves the environment in a better state then when they found it, and benefits the local communities as well?

 

Zero Waste Mining is a concept that mining companies have been working on for years now as they look at how they can find a use for every material they dig out of the ground, and do so in a clean and efficient manner utilising some of the most advanced drones, remote controlled vehicles and precision technology. 

 

In our Zero Waste Mining workshop, we will be working to design and develop a zero waste mine for Rio Tinto that produces no waste and leaves the surrounding area in a better condition then they found it.
