View descriptionShare

In this episode we chat to Tom Cawley, Interim CEO and Exec Chair of MaxMine who provides a data platform service that improves mining operational efficiency, profitability, safety and sustainability in mining

Tom has over 25 years experience in business, innovation, technology and energy across a range of sectors including, Mining, renewable energy, oil and gas and explains what MaxMine does, why A! and data is needed more than ever in our industry and tips on decarbonisation strategies and solutions in modern day mining.


  • MaxMine offers a high-resolution data set that enables the measurement and optimisation of a greater range of processes in mining, providing unique insights and improvement rather than just data.
  • The mining industry is one of the least digitised industries globally, with significant opportunities for productivity improvement through data utilisation. AI and data are crucial for achieving operational efficiency and sustainability in mining.
  • Mining companies face increasing operating costs, labor shortages, turnover, and the need for high-quality data to drive behaviour change and operational improvements.
  • Data and modelling play a key role in decision-making for decarbonisation strategies in mining, enabling companies to optimise existing efficiency and make informed investments in sustainable technologies.


"AI needs lots of data to get to a level of certainty... If you don't have a lot of data, it can't get to a level of probability of saying, 'Yes, I'm pretty sure this is X or Y.'" 

"Mining's got this double net zero imperative... We must supply the minerals at the transition or there is no transition."

"We have this unique high-resolution data set which enables you to measure and optimise a greater range of processes than that's been hitherto unseen."
