Groupe MISA, in partnership with the Quebec Mineral Exploration Association (QMEA), tasked Aviseo with documenting strategies to be employed, particularly in relation to human capital, to promote the implementation of new technologies and innovations in Quebec’s exploration drilling industry.
The intent was to lay the groundwork for a management plan to implement the latest developments in drilling in order to enhance the competitiveness of Quebec businesses in the industry.
The project was carried out at a time when automation and connectivity technologies have become increasingly accessible and available, creating a favourable context for drilling companies to modernize and integrate Industry 4.0 principles into their operations.
We noted, among our key findings, that the interaction of three transformations—namely of the client relationship, drilling, and the driller trade, which were all supported and even caused by technological innovation—involves changing roles and responsibilities in the mineral exploration value chain. Professions ranging from geologists to driller assistants will evolve in different ways.
Organized into seven complementary chapters, this white paper was written to guide readers through the transformation that awaits Quebec’s mineral exploration drilling industry.
