A new project developed at Kazakhstan's Nazarbayev University’s Institute for Smart Systems and Artificial Intelligence, may improve the safety of miners underground. The new technology could determine the location of miners based on an algorithm of available Wi-Fi spot signals and inertial measurement unit sensors. We find out more.

Also in this issue, we look at how Greenland is developing its mining sector and how foreign governments are trying to establish themselves in the country. In addition, we speak with three experts to learn more about the workplace challenges many female miners encounter while securing their livelihood.

Plus, we look at what growing resource nationalism could mean for miners, explore the challenges faced by America's coal-producing regions, and ask whether mining companies are ever likely to prioritise social wellbeing over economic interest?
