The Sibanye Stillwater Digital Mining Laboratory (DigiMine) is a state of the art and one-of-a-kind laboratory. The aim of the laboratory is to make mining safer and more sustainable, using digital technologies. These technologies will enable a mine’s control system to autonomously observe, evaluate and take action, including moving towards real-time responses.

With Mr Ahsan Mahboob leading a highly-skilled team, researchers at DigiMine conduct tests, research and development, and seek innovation, transferring surface digital technologies into the underground mining environment. The research at DigiMine involves deep partnerships with commercial, academic, and industry entities.
