A new white paper from Clareo lays out a plan to turn around the mining industry. The Case for Innovation in the Mining Industryaims to help readers understand the industry’s global challenges and why this is a critical time for mining companies.
Over the last decade, the mining industry has experienced spiraling operational costs and a decline in productivity of more than 10% annually. Yet the industry’s investment in research and development is well under 1%—far less than other industrial sectors like oil & gas, according to Clareo.
To overcome these problems, mining companies need to commit to faster and smarter innovation practices.
In a recent study, Clareo, a consulting firm with expertise in the global resource sector, examined the economic, technical and political challenges confronting mining companies.
“We found there are tremendous opportunities for technological and business-model innovations in the mining industry,” said Peter Bryant, a partner at Clareo. “By collaborating with worldclass leaders, especially from outside the mining ecosystem, companies can drive rapid and effective change that gives them a strong competitive advantage.”
