CLIENT CASE STUDY


Digital transformation for connected mining

Goldcorp is digitally enabling the connected mine for greater efficiency and safety.

VOICE OF TRANSFORMATION

Luis Canepari, vice president of Information Technology at Goldcorp, describes how the mining business is digitally transforming to enable safer and more efficient operations. Working with Accenture, Goldcorp is leveraging the connected mine concept to realize substantial outcomes, including improved safety metrics and data analytics.
We have to reinvent ourselves to be a team that transforms and embraces technology, and is a pioneer in innovation.

HOW WE HELPED

When Goldcorp acquired the mineral rights to a mine site in Argentina, it knew it could do more to improve the productivity and safety conditions of the two mines there. To do so, it collaborated with Accenture to implement the Accenture Life Safety Solution over a six-month period.

The solution comprises a communications and data infrastructure that integrates Goldcorp’s existing Wi-Fi network with location-based technologies and gas detectors to remotely monitor workers, equipment and air quality in the underground mine.








RESULTS

Today, Goldcorp is armed with a better understanding of mine conditions, as well as the precise locations of workers and assets. The Accenture Life Safety Solution has also helped Goldcorp:
