Dashboard delivers on data analytics

A coal mine in Queensland uses dynamic dashboards to display the latest drill and blast information to better inform planning, designs and scheduling.

Digital rethinking

Digitalisation has changed the way drill and blast is perceived at one of Africa’s largest coal mines, leading to better recovery and improved safety.

Daily Workflow

Follow the daily workflow of a typical drill and blast crew as they use BlastLogic software to manage and track their blasting operation. Integrating all tasks and processes, and visualising these in 3D, provides the platform for optimising blast performance.

Digital explosives inventory management

Proper tracking and handling of explosives is crucial to mine safety and efficiency, and going digital is key to ensuring operational improvement.

New scheduling resources

Powerful mine design and scheduling solutions provide a reliable, repeatable workflow to plan the where and how of mining a gold project in the Pilbara region.

Environmental impacts of mining

Optimised scheduling combines with full life cycle analysis to quantify and reduce the environmental impacts of planned mines and monitor those in production.

Evolution of gold extraction scheduling

Outside of the box thinking has helped provide a solution to an open pit heap leach operation scheduling challenge involving the reuse of leaching pads on a set footprint.

Evolution of a mine

Maptek Evolution Strategy and Origin were used to produce complex financial models for the Havilah Resources open cut copper-gold operation in northern South Australia.

For a New Zealand consulting firm, the Maptek Geology Challenge was a chance to trial new software that could ultimately improve outcomes for clients.

Improving on traditional modelling

Machine learning techniques trialled alongside traditional resource modelling at an underground metals mine demonstrates future benefits.

Data driven modelling in a production environment

DomainMCF can change the way an operating mine uses geological and geotechnical models to keep information up to date in a production environment.

Modelling marble reserves

Applying machine learning to model marble reserves resulted in faster results and more uniform quality classifications to guide extraction.

Slope stability risk management

Letšeng Diamond Mine uses Maptek technology for volumetric survey, geological and geotechnical data analysis, and tactical and strategic slope deformation monitoring.

Stability monitoring for peace of mind

Continuous monitoring using Sentry provided effective risk management during equipment maintenance at an Australian mineral sand operation.

Highwall stability in longwall mining

A coal mine in Central Queensland used Sentry monitoring to help predict highwall movement associated with longwall subsidence.

Periodic monitoring with Sentry

Sentry watched over workers during the successful remediation of a rockfall at Kanmantoo Copper Mine, allowing operations to quickly resume.
