All facets of mining increasingly rely on capturing and using quality data. Effective data management and analysis improves production and increases profitability. Mining technology specialist Maptek develops robust systems that apply mining data to more accurately design and model an operation.
Efficient tools for resource definition, stockpile reconciliation and conformance design, which enhance operational safety and productivity will be on show at Maptek Booth 1221 at SME this week in Phoenix, Arizona.
' Controlling expenditure remains a top priority. Many operations have been monitoring and collecting data, some for decades, and now is the ideal time to review what that data can really do,' said Rob Hardman, General Manager North America ahead of the event.
' Maptek monitoring and tracking systems deliver accurate, repeatable results fast. Integration with survey and planning allows operations to better understand their overall mine plan,' Hardman added. ' This promotes continuous learning and improvement.'
Maptek Vulcan 10, due for release soon, contains a wide range of new and enhanced applications for modelling and analysing data. Performance upgrades will also allow mining professionals to work more efficiently, particularly when working with large datasets.
Maptek looks forward to showing the new scheduling tools in Evolution. The dynamic cutoff grade approach optimises material movement which in turn maximizes project value. Evolution can...
