Abstract: The use of automation in deep level hard rock mines has over the years been overshadowed by mechanized mining. However, more and more readily, the industry is starting to recognize the validity of considering automation as an option both in the mining operations and in the efforts to improve mine safety. If mines are safe, the belief is that more skilled labor will express interest in it unlike the way it currently is. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the possibility of using automated tools in the pre-entry examination or making safe exercise.
