MICROMINE, the leading provider of mining software solutions, will be exhibiting at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada Convention (PDAC 2019) in Toronto, Ontario from March 3rd till March 6th, 2019. PDAC is the world’s premier mineral exploration and mining convention, with over 1000 exhibitors, 3500 investors and 26000 attendees from 135 countries.
MICROMINE has exhibited at PDAC for 8 years and has experienced first hand the growth, stature and influence of the conference over the years. ‘’The MICROMINE delegation is looking forward to attending and exhibiting at the upcoming PDAC Conference. This event offers unparalleled opportunities to network with many of our clients and industry partners and to showcase to the 25,000+ attendees from all over the world all that Micromine has been up to over the last year. Many exciting things happened for the company since last year’s conference, and we are proud and excited to share these news as well as information on our upcoming releases with our clients and with the mining community, “ commented Amelie St-Onge, Regional Manager MICROMINE Canada.
MICROMINE will be showcasing its innovative solutions at booth #603 with our talented specialists from around the world including Technical Product Manager for Micromine – Frank Bilki, Regional Manager for Canada – Amelie St-Onge, Technical Pre-Sales for Pitram – Chris Hunt, Training & Support Consultant for Micromine – Liam Murphy, Technical & Support Consultant for Micromine/Geobank – Caleb Birchard, Business Development Manager – Jeremy Pestun, Business Development Manager – Joel Jeangrand and Regional Marketing Coordinator – Maryam Abbaszadeh.
The MICROMINE team will focus on providing software demonstrations for Micromine 2018 & Geobank 2018, whilst also introducing delegates to our artificial intelligence and machine learning initiatives for Pitram 2019. All three solutions have been developed on the back of extensive consultation with MICROMINE’s key clients from across the globe.
Geobank is a data management solution helping mining and exploration companies to maintain the quality, integrity and usability of their essential data. Geobank 2018 includes a range of features and enhancements including a new and improved user interface, Global Substitution Parameters and increased functionality when designing or editing Graphic Reports.
3D modelling and mine design solution Micromine, is due to release its latest version in Q2 of FY2020 and includes a range of new features and enhancements that increase the overall usability and performance of the software. While the initial look and feel of Micromine 2020 will be the same, the new version will come with some new features, these include:
- New charting tools for Geostaticians; swath plots, boundary analysis, QKNA, top cut analysis, multiple charts, and ternary charts.
- New unfolding tool for model interpolation – Micromine has long been considered the #1 product for un-folding complex orebodies for interpolation and our new unfolding tool takes this to the next level allowing us to model more complex orebodies, more rapidly.
- New Stope Optimiser which will enable engineers to design optimal stope shapes based on economic and design constraints from a block model
- Improved scheduler, the existing Scheduler module has had significant improvements made to it for MM2020. A new Gantt chart and the ability to schedule auxiliary tasks are important but the biggest change will be the ability to use Gurobi to solve the schedule. Gurobi is the world leader in schedule optimisation solving and its integration with Micromine Scheduler will enable engineers to schedule larger, more complex problems; and
- Enhancements to Implicit Modelling and Pit Optimiser modules.
MICROMINE is also releasing new underground mining precision software to refine and enhance loading and haulage processes as part of its Pitram solution in early 2019.
This new offering will see the introduction of Artificial intelligence to take loading and haulage automation in underground mines to a new level. Utilising the processes of computer vision and deep machine learning, on-board cameras are placed on loaders to track variables such as loading time, hauling time, dumping time and travelling empty time. The video feed is processed on the Pitram vehicle computer edge device, the extracted information is then transferred to Pitram servers for processing and analyses.
MICROMINE will use PDAC 2019 as a platform to not only catch up with existing clients and their current projects, but to establish new relationships with potential clients, and to introduce them to the benefits of its software solutions. Our Brand Ambassador Mr. MICROMINE will also be flying in from Australia and will provide delegates with a fun break from walking the tradeshow floor. We will also be giving away two bundles of geological tools and MICROMINE merchandise.
