Equipping people for 4IR and digital transformation at Gold Field’s South Deep mine

In this episode of the Modernisation in Mining podcast series, Mining Review Africa Senior Deputy Editor Chantelle Kotze speaks to Gold Fields South Africa Executive Vice President Martin Preece, and Vice President for People and Organisational Effectiveness Gerrit Lotz about the importance of equipping people for the inevitable digital transformation brought about by the fourth industrial revolution. People are the heart of most mining operations, and change management is key in an era of increasing digitalisation.

We also take a closer look at some of the digital technologies that Gold Fields has adopted at its South Deep operation in South Africa and how these have improved the operation.
