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.”
