AbstractThe Canadian mining industry has just lived through one of the most turbulent decades, the 1980s. The early years, which were marked by a world economic downturn, placed considerable stress on the industry in terms of maintaining markets and survival. One of the important outcomes of the experience has been the industry's decision to accelerate the use of new technology and automation in hardrock underground mines. Industry has realized the absolute necessity of productivity enhancement and global competitiveness. The efficient diffusion of new technology to all segments of the industry is important if the Canadian mining industry is to fully benefit from these developments. This paper gives an account of the progress made in Canada since the beginning of the 1980s in the development and use of new technology.
