The mining and metals industry can be a vital cog for a thriving economy. In the US alone, the metals and mining sector was responsible for 1 million jobs and minerals worth $82.3 billion However, legacy operational practices in the mining sector have led to data losses, security breaches, and financial losses. There is a dearth of visibility into the supply chain and a lack of verifiable information about mining practices and performance standards.
From recording sourcing information to tracking the minerals across the value chain to market, present methods of data management have been woefully inadequate.
There is an inherent need to have a platform that can act as a single network between suppliers, freight companies, customers, and mining companies and would securely record all information from mine to market.
Blockchain-based platforms can bridge this gap in the mining industry by providing transparency, immutability, and high data security.
An enterprise-grade comprehensive blockchain-based platform that provides end-to-end visibility across the entire supply chain. It leverages distributed ledger technology to obtain digital maturity by recording all transactions from the source of the metal to its journey across the value chain in real-time. It would also provide traceability to help mining companies adhere to compliance standards and certification of sustainable metals that would help increase its value in the supply chain.
DL MineTrace helps in capturing essential particulars like provenance data, specifics about compliance and sustainability standards, and supplier information. This allows mining companies to adhere to ESG norms, present the right data to their environmentally-conscious consumers, better manage their supply chain, and improve trust between all players.
