Gold Fields and ABB pioneer digital mining in remote Chilean desert
Gold Fields partnered with ABB to create one of the most digitally connected mines in the world.
ABB is installing its enterprise-grade digital platform ABB Ability™ Genix Industrial Analytics and AI Suite to enable Gold Fields’ Salares Norte project in Chile to drive efficient, sustainable and remote operations. 
The gold and silver mine is located in the Atacama Desert, among the highest peaks of the Andes mountain range with elevations of between 4,200m and 4,900m. It is 1,300km from the Chilean capital of Santiago where the ABB Ability™ Genix suite is located in a remote monitoring center for the mine.
