We help mining companies enable safer, more sustainable and profitable operations with digital.
As a bedrock industry critical for the global shift towards electrification and digital transformation, mining faces unprecedented challenges.
Rising demand for minerals, declining ore quality and increased sustainability expectations all put enormous pressure on the industry. Stringent political and regulatory frameworks intensify the burden.
The societal and environmental impacts of the industry amplify end consumer scrutiny and call for rapid change.
Leaders across mining operations — from superintendents and operations managers to environmental health and safety officers — are looking for innovative solutions that can help strike a balance between the adverse demands.
Adoption of digital technologies can help. Enhanced software capabilities paired with AI and growing compute power unlock analytical and optimization capabilities that help increase yield and quality while maintaining regulatory compliance and meeting ESG commitments.

Case Study / Newcrest Mining: Model Predictive Control for More Efficient Mining
Reduced power usage
Improved process stability
Increased gold recovery
How We Helped Newcrest Mining Maximize Efficiency and Profitability Across Processing Plants with Model Predictive Control
In pursuit of greater efficiency and profitability, Newcrest embarked on a multi-year Process Control & Analytics (PC&A) initiative in partnership with the Kalypso Industrial Data Science team. The forward-thinking PC&A framework strategically combined internal skill enhancement with external collaboration, empowering the deployment of cutting-edge technologies including AI and advanced process controls to revolutionize Newcrest's operations.
Newcrest engaged the Kalypso Industrial Data Science team to explore how Pavilion8® model predictive control (MPC) technology could be deployed in its process plants to achieve key targets. The joint efforts of the Newcrest and Kalypso teams yielded improvements that not only met but often more than doubled the initial targets set, delivering significant and ongoing economic and environmental benefits.Read More
