The “Metal
Ore Mining Market Global Briefing 2018” report has been added
to’s offering.

Asia Pacific was the largest region in the metal ore mining market in
2017, accounting for around 80% market share. This is mainly because
most countries in the region have large mineral resources and demand.
Asia Pacific makes up almost two-thirds of the global non-ferrous
mineral exploration expenditure. Africa was the second largest region
accounting for over 5% market share. Eastern Europe was the smallest

The use of robots in the metal ore mining industry is improving the
efficiency and productivity of mines and reduces operational costs.
Robotics is significantly increasing the mining capabilities by rolling
out autonomous trucks and drills, thus reducing the need for human
workforce. Robots are used in some critical mining activities such as
drilling, blasting explosives in the mines, and guiding and driving
off-highway haul trucks operating in mines. RioTinto has deployed
driverless trucks and robotic rock drilling rigs to haul the ore 24
hours a day and reported 15% reduction in operating costs. for instance,
BHP Billiton has also rolled out driverless trucks and drills in its
iron ore mines.
