Austmine 2019 Mining Innovation conference: Resolute Mining CEO interview

Resolute Mining's Syama underground operation in Mali.

Resolute Mining is taking advantage of new technology in the mining sector at its Syama underground gold mine in Mali, West Africa.

Syama will be the world’s first, purpose built and fully automated underground gold mine powered by hybrid solar systems.

Jobs will not be in jeopardy but instead increase in the form of skilled local jobs alongside the advent of automation.

Resolute chief executive John Welborn tells Austmine about some of the technology it is introducing here.

“Our Syama underground mine is now in the advanced stage of commissioning and is the world’s first, purpose built, fully automated sublevel cave gold mine,” Welborn said.

Resolute is a successful gold miner with over 30 years of experience as an explorer, developer and operator of gold mines in Africa and Australia. The company has operated nine gold mines which have produced more than eight million ounces of gold.
