Innovation and Technology

Recently, our senior management team and members of the Board of Directors took a virtual reality tour of Greenhills Operations and saw firsthand improvements that have been made in truck productivity at our sites.

Transforming our Business with Technology

How technology and innovation are changing the way we operate.

Digital innovation and new technologies have the potential to transform industries, including mining. At Teck, we have a dedicated team assessing a wide range of technology to help identify and fast-track those with the greatest potential to improve safety, productivity and environmental performance at our operations.

Those include mobile equipment automation; shovel-mounted sensors that differentiate between ore and waste; LNG-fueled haul trucks, building on the pilot we conducted last year; digitalization to improve productivity and decision-making; and virtual and augmented reality, that can give us the ability to view remote sites or visualize data in three dimensions.

This innovation is one example of our ongoing efforts to develop and implement new technologies, techniques and ideas across every aspect of our business—from exploration and project development through to active mining, mineral processing and reclamation and closure.
