In the majority of mining operations, a much larger volume of materials needs to be removed to find the valuable materials companies are mining for. Inevitably, separating the useless rocks and debris to get to what we’re mining for tends to be an expensive endeavor. Some companies have begun to use smart sorting machines that can sort the mined material based on whatever criteria a company wants. This work can lead to savings in fuel and energy during processing.
