Maptek, global developer of mine technology solutions, will join Chinese sales partner Pioneering Inc. at China Mining Congress and Expo in Tianjing from 20 to 23 October.
New developments in mining science and technology are expected to be strong drawcards at the annual expo. Among them will be the first look at Maptek’s geological modelling and mine planning software in Chinese.
Vulcan 10, due for release in March 2016, will feature comprehensive modelling and design tools available in Chinese as well as other languages.
Maptek provides highly regarded software and services across the mining execution value chain. Vulcan and Eureka streamline tasks in mine evaluation, planning and design. I-Site technology targets 3D laser scanning, survey and imaging applications. The spatial data collected can be used for geotechnical analysis, stockpile measurement, design conformance and movement tracking.
‘Maptek offers a broad range of technology products that help companies from the commencement of mining projects,’ said Maptek Managing Director Peter Johnson. ‘Built in workflows and ease of use are hallmarks of our solutions. This makes them easy to implement, and the quick uptake means operations can start benefiting sooner.’
‘In terms of development focus, we have closely examined how processes, and the technology which collects data around those processes, can be harnessed and integrated. This has helped us to capture workflows in our solutions to deliver increased productivity in very aggressive market conditions,’ Johnson continued.
‘There is no denying that the market is experiencing difficult times. At China Mining, Maptek is keen to showcase ways our solutions create opportunities to achieve systemic, sustainable productivity gains.’
‘As well as embracing new technologies, miners can make more effective use of existing technologies to maintain their competitive advantage’, added Johnson. ‘A consistent way to do this is to exploit the information being gathered during execution of the mine plan to add value and improve business outcomes.’
‘Given the huge investment and scale of resources in mining, even a very small fraction of a percent increase in productivity can be worth millions of dollars. So it makes sense to invest in technology that gathers, records, analyses, optimises and reports on virtually any data source available,’ Johnson concluded.
Visit Maptek and Pioneering at China Mining Booths 5113 & 5115. Maptek Managing Director Peter Johnson will present a paper in the technology supplier stream on October 21 between 2 and 5.30 pm.
