Big Data Mining, in the Mining Industry
With the advancement of technology and on-site, real-time reporting systems, companies are capturing and retaining more and more data every day – but what results is a huge bank of unstructured data. Using big data mining techniques, Emily tackled 7-years of data from the Torex Gold Resources Inc. Incident database to identify high and low severity events that can be used to improve their safety systems for the future. Mirroring the actual mining life cycle, Emily will highlight the stages of exploration, design and planning, construction, production, and closure that she followed to extract and retrieve this valuable information.
