SYDNEY--The next boom in electric vehicles could be the world's mining fleet. From rural Canada to Australia's dusty Outback, companies are swapping out diesel-fueled drills, loaders and utility vehicles for equipment powered by lithium-ion batteries. They are looking to reduce emissions and eliminate the exhaust fumes that foul the underground air and risk miners' health. Around 35 electric vehicles are at work at Newmont Goldcorp Corp.'s Borden mine near Chapleau, Ontario, unearthing ore or ferrying workers around the site, which began producing commercial volumes in October. Newmont wants the mine to go all-electric. An electric production drill will arrive early next year, a spokesman said, and diesel haul trucks are likely to be phased out. "The Holy Grail is a haul truck," said Kirsten Rose, who oversees low-emission technologies at BHP Group Ltd., the world's largest mining company by market value. These heavy-duty trucks carry tons of ore out of the bottom of pits, and with current technology, matching the power of their diesel engines would require an enormous battery pack. BHP has been testing a light electric vehicle over the past year at Olympic Dam, Australia's largest underground mine, and this month it will add another. The company intends to expand the trial to other Australian mines. In Canada, workers planning BHP's Jansen potash project are assessing how many electric vehicles could be deployed if it goes ahead. The aim is one day to eliminate all diesel-powered machines from mine sites, Ms. Rose said. Smaller rivals are also stepping up efforts to go green. Among them, Nouveau Monde Graphite Inc. is planning an all-electric open-pit graphite mine in Quebec. At Fortescue Metals Group Ltd., one of the world's top suppliers of iron ore, CEO Elizabeth Gaines said, "We're always looking at opportunities to replace diesel." But "the technology--the battery life--isn't quite there yet for our operations," she said. The technology is advancing rapidly, but that can present another challenge: "It's like laptops," said Drew O'Sullivan, who is leading BHP's trial at Olympic Dam. "By the time you get it home, it's outdated." The purchase price is a further hurdle. Electric vehicles for use in mines cost from 40% more than to three times as much as diesel-powered ones, experts say. Proponents counter that running costs are lower. Borden's annual energy expenses should be lower by roughly US$9 million--possibly more--than a traditional mine's, the Newmont spokesman said. One factor in that: As much as 40% of an underground mine's energy costs are tied to powering giant ventilation systems to extract pollutants from tunnels. Customers and investors are pushing for global resources companies to clean up their act. With a growing focus on the social impact of investments, many big pension funds and asset managers, as well as project financiers, are pressing miners to disclose and reduce their carbon footprints. Diesel is a ripe target: It accounts for more than one-third of BHP's direct operational emissions, Ms. Rose said. Regulators may soon join in the push. In July, the mines department of Western Australia state raised fresh concerns about the health of workers who spend up to 12 hours a day guiding heavy machinery around subterranean labyrinths. "Diesel-engine exhaust is a known hazard for mining operations, especially in underground mines," said Andrew Chaplyn, the department's director of mines safety. A government committee is drawing up recommendations for the state's mines minister. Within a few years, diesel machinery will likely no longer be used at new underground mines in Australia, while being phased out at others, said Sherif Andrawes, global head of natural resources at accounting and advisory firm BDO. "I think what we are seeing now is the start of something quite big," he said. Rio Tinto PLC, the world's second-biggest miner by market value, is even studying the potential for hybrid engines on its heavy-haul railway trains. Ian Vella, who oversees rail services for Rio Tinto, is excited about the regenerative-braking aspect. "Imagine a giant battery on one of those locomotives that is taking energy from the train as it is braking, storing it, and then it can use it when it needs power on the network," he said. Still, electrifying mine fleets won't do much to cut the industry's overall emissions without a shift away from fossil fuels to renewable power for generating electricity. Some miners are moving in that direction. Last month, Fortescue struck an agreement with electricity generator Alinta Energy to help power its Chichester iron-ore production hub with solar energy, displacing roughly 100 million liters of diesel annually.

It seems to me the main driver for BHP to go for clean, Green energy to power some of their mines and plants is because in the long run is going to be cheaper then using fossil fuels....BHP are going this way as is the long run will save them money - oh! and looks good too...

SYDNEY--BHP Group Ltd. (BHP.AU) said it has signed four new renewable-power agreements to meet energy demand for its Chilean copper operations and will record a roughly US$780-million provision linked to the cancellation of existing coal contracts. BHP said the new renewable energy contracts for its Escondida and Spence mines in Chile will be value accretive even including the provision, which will be recognized in its financial results for the first half of fiscal 2020. "These new renewable energy contracts will increase flexibility for our power portfolio and will ensure security of supply for our operations, while also reducing costs and displacing CO2 emissions," Daniel Malchuk, president of BHP Minerals Americas, said in a statement. The four contracts are estimated to reduce energy prices for the two operations by roughly 20%, he said. The separate contracts agreed by Escondida and Spence include 10- and 15-year terms with ENEL GeneraciĆ³n Chile and Colbun, and are due to start early next decade, BHP said.

CITYAM Monday 21 October 2019 6:18 pm BHP to switch Chilean copper operations to renewables by 2021 Edward Thicknesse Mining giant BHP has announced today that it will supply all its Chilean copper operations through renewable energy from 2021. Daniel Malchuck, president of BHP Minerals Americas, said that it had signed four energy contracts, covering projects such as Escondida, the world’s biggest copper mine. The new deals, which will cut energy costs by 20 per cent, are the most extensive signed by a customer in Chile. Compared with fossil fuel-based contracts, they will displace 3m tonnes of carbon dioxide from 2022, the equivalent annual footprint of 700,000 cars. Malchuck said: “It’s good for the environment, it’s good for emissions, but it’s also great business.” A provision of $780m (£600.2m) for the cancellation of the company’s existing coal contracts will be reflected in BHP’s December half-year results. The deals include 15-year contracts from August 2021 with Enel Generacion Chile and 10-year contracts with Chilean utility Colbun from January 2022. Chile has become a world leader in renewable power due to the falling cost of solar and wind energy. In July, Anglo American announced a similar switch for its mining operations. Andrew Mackenzie, BHP chief executive, said the deals were part of a global trend. He said: “As part of global decarbonisation, similar moves from coal more or less directly to renewables may be required over the coming decades in other countries, particularly those without access to cheap gas.” In addition to shifting to renewable generation, mining companies are also taking steps to address consumption of other resources. In Chile, BHP said it was working to reduce water use by stopping the depletion of aquifers, underground layers of water-bearing permeable rock. It aims to have replaced this water source with desalination plants by 2030.
