ROBOMINERS Project to Conduct Field Trials in Estonian Open-Pit Mine

The EU-funded ROBOMINERS project is set to embark on field trials from 31 July to 4 August 2023 in Kunda, Estonia. The trials will take place in an open-pit mine and will mark a significant milestone in the project’s mission to enhance European access to mineral raw materials and reduce import dependency.


ROBOMINERS partners had the chance to introduce our project at the annual EGU General Assembly in Vienna. Consortium partners under the lead of Giorgia Stasi (Geological Survey of Belgium) convened a session entitled “Mining the future: new trends and technological advances in mining exploration and production // Novel developments in understanding the petrogenesis of REE […]

Do you know a potential pilot site?

ROBOMINERS is constructing a robotic miner which will facilitate EU access to mineral raw materials. One of the main goals in 2023 is to prepare ROBOMINERS pilots for the year 2030, where the technology line should reach TRL 6/7 (system prototype demonstration in operational environment), with a first industrial pilot with tethered and semi-autonomous operation […]
