In this episode we interview Liv Carroll – Senior Principal at Accenture focusing on Accentures digital applied intelligence and transformation within the mining industry. 

Liv’s background is in geology and over time he has moved into Applied Intelligence to generate value for clients through definition, adoption & strengthening of innovation and sustainability strategy; advanced analytics & machine learning; and improved operating models.

We talk about the key drivers of the mining industry today and how technology can address contemporary business needs. Liv discusses attributes of successful companies rather than those that flounder, while giving us an insightful account of where mining will be in 10 years.


  • When Liv graduated, no mining concerns were taking people on due to falling prices. Liv took a lateral step and joined a UK based consulting firm, working with aggregate players.
  • The UK government knew early that it was wise to invest in mineral products for the future.
  • Institutional investors and now taking a very keen interest in how companies are affecting the environment and the social fabrics of mining projects.
  • Data shows that in 2018, mining was still unable to achieve zero fatalities. This needs to change.
  • Liv and the mining industry in general are doing their best to study and engender positive human behaviour in order to deliver new technologies to support it.
  • It is important to contribute time and energy into making mining a better industry, and a healthy, nurturing place for the next generation of miners. Those who have gained experience have a collective responsibility to help others move up the ladder.
