We had the pleasure of attending the 104th annual convention for the Utah Mining Association at the Zermatt Resort. Very interesting presenters talked about some of the mining history in Utah as well as current battery technology trends and how that affects mining in Utah. We also attended some of the breakout sessions discussing technology advancements in mining operations as well as technology in safety. The discussions about the development of operator fatigue technology were quite fascinating. This technology has come a long ways and the data now available from monitoring operators has improved the implementation of this technology. It is always exciting to see engineered safety controls improving and being successfully implemented.
