As Anglo’s OEM-independent automaton partner, ASI will leverage its 14-year s of experience in developing robotic solutions for the mining, farming, automotive, industrial and military industries. The company has already commenced development and testing of the autonomous mining systems with active field trials in northern Utah.

Commenting on the partnership, the president and CEO of ASI, Mel Torrie said, “Anglo American is at the forefront of innovation in the mining industry and they have been the ideal partner in creating disruptive mining solutions.”

Falling commodity prices, declining ore qualities and obstacles to extraction has revealed the dire need to make improvements to an aging sector. “[The mining industry] needs to leap forward twenty years in five,” said Tony O’Neill, Group Director of Technical at Anglo American.
