The vibe at MINExpo 2016, which took place September 26-28 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, was fairly predictable, but the leap in technological advancements, especially in the area of autonomous mining, was quite surprising. More than 44,000 people attended the world’s largest mining exposition, according to the U.S. National Mining Association (NMA). That attendance figure was down 15% from four years ago, and it’s understandable considering the current state of the mining market. The general consensus on the show floor was that traffic levels weren’t as slow as many had anticipated.
