Why we are your desired choice in Mining Technology
Technological Innovation

Zim-Resources is your top notch company that has adopted new technology in various mining disciplines in-order to match the latest global mining trends.

In the earliest days of mining, miners used primitive digging tools made of stone, and they even dug mine shafts by hand. Eventually, the industry progressed from picks and hammers to fire for clearing tunnels, enabling miners to achieve greater depths at a considerably faster rate. They carried out this process by piling logs by the face of a rock and setting them on fire. The heat from the burning pile gradually weakened the rocks, causing them to fracture and break.

Digitalization and Big Data

The mining industry will continue to use data to become more efficient. With automated technologies, companies will be able to collect and analyze data to make the most informed decisions regarding the production process, predictive maintenance, mine conditions, and inventory management, to name a few.

In the Middle Ages, significant advances in mining technologies occurred as miners began to use explosive black powder to dismantle large rocks, which was eventually replaced with dynamite. During the 19th century, the mining industry also saw developments in motorized mining tools, such as lifts, steam-powered pumps, and drills. Amid the wake of the Industrial Revolution, mining equipment progressed further with innovations like mechanical drills powered by compressed air — now known as pneumatic hammers — which enabled more efficient hard rock mining. Advancements in drilling eventually led to more efficient loading methods, such as mine cars, electric conveyors, and large-capacity vehicles.

GIS Systems

Similar to GPS technologies, geographic information systems, or GISs, are integral for discovering geographic relationships on the job site and determining how they impact the environment

Virtual reality

Virtual Reality (VR) is a computer-generated environment with scenes and objects that appear to be real, making the user feel they are immersed in their surroundings. This environment is perceived through a device known as a Virtual Reality headset or helmet

Small Scale Mining Innovation

Nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best every pleasure is to be welcomed & every pain avoided certain circumstances.

Record Keeping

Record and trace miner work and output, along with helping the miners improve the way they work and improve their business acumen.


There have been many calls for formalisation of the Artisanal & Small-Scale Mining sector from different civil society organisations and NGOs.

Advanced Equipment and Technology

Access to the latest equipment will help improve efficiency. Rapid advances in technological innovation, including through automation, digitization, and electrification, are having a fundamental impact on the mining sector

How Has Technology Affected the Mining Industry?

New technological innovations in the mining industry have delivered ground-breaking benefits to the field over the years, such as:

Capacity Building

Training, tracking and ‘certification’. Civil society and international organisations that would want to partner with the miners and provide training and pilot projects will get easy access to the database and information regarding potential stakeholders

Increased productivity

As mining companies integrate more advanced technologies into their processes, they experience more efficient operations and improved performance. Greater technologies also enable these organizations to limit spending and boost labor productivity.

Higher throughput

In many mines, the introduction of solutions like analytics systems has resulted in a global optimum rather than a local optimum, ultimately increasing yield energy throughput for mining organizations. As a result, these technologies raise minimal recovery.

Maintenance optimization

Technology has helped mines improve maintenance by conducting it on an as-needed basis instead of on a fixed schedule. It has also enabled workers to stay informed on maintenance history and work orders and even predict equipment failures before they occur.

Improved safety

Automated mining technologies have improved job site safety by taking on operations in dangerous working conditions so that miners don’t have to. Tools like smart sensors have also minimized the frequency of health and safety incidents and injuries.

Fewer operating costs

In the mining industry, automated technologies have reduced labor and maintenance costs with continuous operation and less variability.

Minimized environmental harm

Mining technologies have allowed workers to extract mining materials with minimal environmental impact. They have also led to reduced energy consumption.
