Barrick Gold partnered with Cisco to unleash the full potential of mining through technology. Its underground Wi-Fi network is paying off big dividends in terms of visibility, safety, and dependability. Now mine operators can see and understand what’s happening in real-time by tracking equipment, people, and ore as they are on the move.
"Harnessing the potential of digital technology will unlock value across our business. In so doing, we will make ourselves into a leading 21st century company—enhancing safety, productivity and efficiency at our mines, and improving decision-making and performance across every area of our business."John L.
