More than 20 mining engineers from across the Americas took part in a strategic and tactical planning workshop hosted at Maptek Mexico’s Hermosillo office.
The Maptek Evolution workshop in mid-January allowed Maptek Mine Planning Business Manager Australasia and Evolution Product Manager, Eduardo Coloma to present the dynamic scheduling solution to attendees.
Engineers from Fresnillo La Herradura, Agnico Eagle La India, Pinos Altos, La Mascota and El Barqueño, Alamos Gold El Chanate, Cobre del Mayo, Grupo México Cananea, Pan American Silver Dolores and Goldcorp Penasquito enjoyed the workshop and recognised the value of Evolution.
‘It’s a good way to see the tools available today to improve project performance,’ noted Superintendent Technical Services Agnico Eagle, Sergio Bernal.
‘Evolution fully integrates the most important variables for a medium and long term plan, and it’s very practical to use,’ commented Cobre del Mayo Planning Superintendent, Jhonnás Molina.
National Director, Maptek Mexico and the Caribbean Operations, Alberto Ramirez was delighted with the turnout of mining professionals enthusiastic to learn more about Evolution planning tools.
‘The event exceeded our expectations,’ he said. ‘It has given us the opportunity to show the real value of this agile and dynamic program, which will allow engineers to maximise the value of their operations.’
Mexico has become one of the world’s main exploration destinations, leading to sustained growth in mining activities. Maptek has been the ideal technology partner to help companies succeed, providing software and hardware solutions across the mining cycle.
This year Maptek expanded its Mexican offices into new facilities with comfortable, modern spaces for training and meetings as well as more room for operational growth.
