UG Mining Tech has been created to give underground mining professionals an online focal point for the latest in technology and ideas.

The website is curated and maintained by me, Jake Harris, an underground mine surveyor based in Perth, Western Australia. I started this “passion project” in 2020 after realising there was a growing tide of innovative solutions for the underground that were struggling to reach their target audience.

Since its inception this website has provided a web resource for those interested in new technology and positive change in the underground mining arena. I have subsequently helped mining businesses form technology roadmaps, as well as delivering customer introductions, marketing assistance and mining specific technical writing.

If you have any questions about the solutions or ideas covered on this website please reach out.

Alternatively, if you would be interested in working together, please get in touch via LinkedIn or on email via
