Geological data underpins the most critical business decisions in the mining industry, but the data that backs these decisions can be poorly managed, adding risk and leading to significant inefficiencies, which ultimately affect the bottom line.

Mining companies recognise this challenge and in fact, according to the recent Geoscience Data Management survey by Geosoft, 83% of respondents stated that data management is a critical or “top 5 issue” for their organisation.

Our report explores these issues that are having such an impact. It looks at how technology needs to enable change and what essential developments are needed to solve this multi-million dollar problem.
