The Australian mining industry is seen as a world leader in large-scale automation projects, forged through impressive autonomous haul-truck and rail .. Read more operations in the Pilbara. However, the industry has only just scratched the surface on the possibilities of automation. A wide array of opportunity exists for optimisation through autonomous operations, with safety, environmental and economic outcomes all expected to be improved through a move away from manual processes. Applying artificial intelligence (AI) to control an automated blast hole drilling system has demonstrated a significant increase in hole productivity by applying intelligent adjustment to drill controls that provides a cleaner hole that virtually eliminates backfill traditionally caused by rough sides during drill extraction, automatic depth control, and most importantly, rapid drilling with reduced machine stress that exceeds not only human performance capabilities, but those of traditional automated blast hole drill control systems. This presentation will illustrate the results of an automated blast hole drill system that uses AI in its control algorithm at a copper mine in USA.
