Abstract:  The Self Learning Ore Body (SLOB) enables safer, stable and more sustainable mining operations leading to increased value in both $ and ESG terms. Whilst the technology is available, a full SLOB has not yet been realised because making change happen is difficult, mostly for reasons related to influencing people.
