Mining & Minerals 

Safe and dependable solutions for challenging conditions above and below ground!
Mining and Minerals

Mining and minerals operations operate under challenging conditions characterised as isolated, high-pressure, 24-hour, hazardous, and large-scale. Due to this, risk management and control processes are imperative to ensure minimal breakdowns, losses in production, and missed targets.

Our expertise in automation and control processes ensures our Mining and Minerals clients have the correct strategies and control processes that deliver a measurable advantage. In other words, we deliver integrated solutions for your complex mining challenges from exploration to refining. Involving both above and below-ground mines, we have the knowledge and technical skills to help those who mine coal, gold, silver, copper, zinc, lead, limestone, and more.

Most importantly, we understand that success in mining relies on reducing the ongoing costs of exploration and ensuring safety while continuing to deliver high-quality outputs. As such, our safe and dependable automated and control solutions provide opportunities to maximise output, optimise production, guarantee quality, and also secure safety.

Triple i, your Solutions Partner

Safeguard Quality

In short, maintain high standards of outputs with implemented control and also measurement procedures along with ongoing monitoring throughout the processes of the project.

Optimise Production & Maximise Output

In short, focus on improving production and also outputs. Save time and maximise performance with the right equipment, predictive maintenance schedules, and also support

Reduce Downtime

Access to more information and also predictive maintenance activities means your operations are more reliable and as such reduce breakdowns.

24/7 breakdown Support

Most importantly, our team can provide onsite and remote support depending on the type of breakdown or fault. Also, with more IIoT technologies, remote fault resolution has led to quicker troubleshooting, shorter downtime, and also overall reduced costs.

Improve Asset Management

Overall, using our in-house asset management tool AIMS, our team is armed with the data and information needed to keep track of assets while also optimising performance.

Deliver Industry Expertise

From coal mining to limestone, from open-cut to longwall, our team has the knowledge and also skill to ensure our solutions suit your operations regardless of either materials or risks.


Most importantly, we understand all aspects of mining, whether above or below ground, the type of mineral being mined, or the challenges staff face. As mentioned, our expertise in automation and control systems, processes, equipment, and also assets means you are delivered fit-for-purpose solutions.

Furthermore, with the digital transformation of sectors, including Mining and Minerals, we have improved processes in new ways. As such, we help increase production, reduce costs, and also maximise plant lifespans. In addition, we deliver physical infrastructure improvements and exceptional monitoring systems and also safeguard teams from hazards. As a result, overall our solutions offer an advantage.

To summarise, our Mining and Minerals capabilities include, but are not limited to:

Mining System Solutions


  • Conveyor systems
  • Mine water management
  • Underground equipment monitoring; longwall mining solutions
  • Mobile control rooms
  • Ship loading systems
  • Pipeline control systems
  • Bore management and water processing

Mining & Mineral equipment

In short, we have practice in supporting complex mining operations, measuring, monitoring, and controlling equipment such as:

  • SAG and ball mills
  • Crushers and screens
  • Floatation cells, thickeners, and clarifiers
  • Coal Handling and Preparation Plants (CHPP)
  • Sampling systems
  • and, Conveyors, hoppers, and stockpiles

Underground & longwall Mining operations

In underground mines, such as coal mines, where explosive gasses are released, we have developed techniques to ensure the safety and optimisation of the mine. This includes:

  • Ventilation systems involve forcing air through the mine to remove hazardous gas such as methane.
  • Hazard control solutions, for instance, special explosion and flameproof housings to contain electronic and electrical equipment needed to operate and control machinery.
  • Monitoring gas levels, such as methane, with analysers and installing alerts.
  • Increasing the use of automation to reduce staff access in dangerous operational areas.
  • IIOT solutions to monitor, control and troubleshoot remotely from a safe area.

Triple i are systems integrators for ARDI-VE (Asset Relationship and Data Integrator – Virtual Environments) for longwall mining applications.

In short, ARDI allows you to view your longwall from any vantage point. Not just in terms of where your camera is, but you can view any data points you like across the wall, from any point in time.

As such, review live and historical data regarding your longwall’s overall performance, zoom in on assets, measure, and monitor processes, and more – all with the help of 3D.

With Triple i and ARDI, we can facilitate your longwalls digital transformation, providing operation efficiencies, improving production outputs, and securing safety on site. Plus, there is no more mining in the dark!
