BHP’s C-19 Tracer app is making progress in mining industry

BHP is working towards massifying its C-19 Tracer app within Chile’s mining industry. The world’s largest mining company proposed the idea to the Ministry of Science and to other mining companies operating in Chile. C-19 Tracer is a mobile application that traces when people have had close contact with someone infected with COVID-19. BHP has said that since its launch back in May, the app has been downloaded 6,000 times by people working at its Escondida, Cerro Colorado and Spence operations in Chile.
