Haydn Roberts, CEO of mining technology company MST Global, reveals the integrated, platform approach future-proofing mines worldwide
Mining technology firm MST Global can trace its origins back some 30 years to an urgent need for improved communications in a mining setting. Inspired by a tragic mining disaster at Moura colliery, the company was involved in pioneering a form of through-the-earth communication known as PED. “It provided the ability to communicate through the rock and send a one way message to trapped miners,” says CEO Haydn Roberts.
“From there the company started out of Sydney and then grew into offering other types of technologies and solutions, all focused around underground coal and hard rock mining linked to voice or data communications and the tracking of people. We’ve really built a whole digital ecosystem around that initial offering.”
