The ABCs of ROCs

Remote operation centres (ROCs) have been highly effective for major mining companies, and as costs and barriers to entry fall, they’re only becoming more popular across the industry. So what's next for these facilities, and will small and medium-sized mines be able to capitalise on them?

This week, Innovation Digest host Joe Carr speaks to John McGagh, former Head of Innovation at Rio Tinto to find out. They discuss how medium-sized operations are starting to adopt ROCs, the data management issues involved, and why mining companies need to bring local communities in on these projects.
