The Next Step in Mining Technology: Once in a while mining technology takes a big leap. The Rosemont Copper mine in southern Arizona has the potential to facilitate just that. In this presentation we will be looking at many types of technology in the planning for the Rosemont project. The combination of Rosemont being a green field site and the current rise in mining technology has incredible potential to rewrite the book in mining efficiencies.
