Training the World to Mine
New trainees and recruits get a better understanding of what is expected of them and how to handle different work situations. They can inspect every part of the site and even interact with the different virtual objects around them which directly leads to higher learning retention and better results. Experienced workers get trained in advanced skills and emergencies.
Blasting is one of the most important and yet risky processes in mining. Even the smallest mistake can lead to loss of time, money, and in worst cases, lives. With VR, one can simulate different blasting scenarios to identify the most effective ones by inspecting the cracks, fractures, and markings. This not only leads to safer mining practices but also helps in quicker onboarding of the employees.
In case of emergencies like a fire inside the deep mine, all the life-saving tactics should be practised. As the fire alarm rings, workers should reach safe positions and wear fireproof suits. In case of low oxygen levels in deep mines, workers should wear oxygen masks immediately. All this emergency training should be done in chaotic and confined spaces too as training levels up.
AR can help in the visual guidance of the drilling process to the new workers. Also, AR can be extended for providing real-time location and the orientation of the drill bit between the rock surfaces. It will facilitate the driller for faster reaction and needed adjustments to improve the drilling accuracy at 100%. AR will help in having the real-time data analysis of the stress generated in the drill bit to prevent the sudden rupture of a drill. Thereby ensuring safety at the mining site.

Virtual reality significantly improves the way staff training is conducted, especially in jobs that require working in hazardous conditions. For example, controlled explosives are an extremely important tool in mining; however, this can be highly dangerous and lead to deadly accidents if they are not executed correctly. In instances where explosives are not positioned in the correct spots and precise measurements are not completed, the rocks may crack in ways that are not anticipated. This can create a harmful and unsafe situation, not only underground but above the surface as well. To avoid this kind of risk, Virtual Reality provides a way to practice the art of placing explosives without any danger by using a simulated VR mine.
VR technology offers a controlled and clean environment with reliable connectivity and power infrastructure which makes eye-tracking, motion tracking, and user tracking incredibly easy. On the other hand, collecting this type of data out in the field, especially in an underground mine would be nearly impossible due to all the permissibility requirements that need to be followed.
There are only so many training scenarios one can explain to employees in a classroom setting. But VR training gives one complete control to customize different scenarios and environment simulations. one can monitor the user’s movements, trigger different events, and experiment with different situations.
VR training leads to enhanced employee participation as well as engagement. While classroom training can often come across as uninteresting to many with no way to apply all the theoretical concepts in practice, VR training is highly immersive which gives employees more room to experiment, leads to higher learning retention, and better performance at work.
