Abstract: Russia currently needs a program to upgrade its production facilities in order to maintain their sustainable development and competitiveness of their products in the global market. The same applies to the mining companies. Modern means of ensuring the safety of employees of mining enterprises are needed, as well as the use of cutting edge digital technologies aimed at increasing the efficiency of mining, as well as reducing the cost of mineral extraction and processing. Such mechanisms are currently associated with the VI technological wave and involve an active introduction and use of digital technologies in the daily operation of mining enterprises. In connection with the foregoing, the author of this article made an attempt to make a scientific analysis and critical reflection on the introduction of modern digital technologies at mining enterprises in present-day Russia.

Keywords: technological transformation, modernization of production, mining enterprises, digital technologies, VI technological wave
