MICROMINE offers three market leading products to assist mining companies increase production and performance, improve efficiencies and reduce costs. Micromine Micromine is a comprehensive and easy to use exploration and mine design solution, which offers integrated tools for modelling, estimation, design, optimisation and scheduling.
It provides users with an in- depth understanding of their projects, so prospective regions can be targeted more accurately, increasing the chance of a project’s success.
Miners are provided with interactive and easy- to- use modelling, estimation, and design tools to simplify their day- to- day design and production tasks. Geobank Geobank is a secure and flexible data management system to protect an organisation’s most valuable asset – data.
The scalable software solution delivers market leading geological data management capabilities across a range of environments. Pitram Pitram is a fleet management and mine control solution that records, manages and processes mine site data in real-time.
As a scalable solution, it is suitable for underground and surface mine construction, development and production.
Pitram records data related to equipment, personnel and materials, providing an overall view of the current mine status and therefore enabling improved control over operations.
Greater control allows sites to increase production, reduce costs, and improve safety and business intelligence. Recent activities Recently, MICROMINE successfully implemented its leading underground fleet management and mine control solution, Pitram, at Dugald River, in north-west QLD.
MMG’s Dugald River mine has one of the world’s highest-grade known zinc deposits, supporting a 1.7mtpa operation with annual production of around 170,000 tonnes of zinc concentrate per annum.
The successful implementation of Pitram enables the control room administrators to capture live data ensuring data accuracy, increasing efficiencies and control over equipment, tasks and personnel.
“We are very excited to have implemented Pitram at Dugald River,” MICROMINE Pitram Product Strategy manager Gareth Dean said.
“Pitram will provide MMG with an overall view of the current mine status, therefore enabling more control over the operation.”
