MICROMINE shining a spotlight on mining tech at Austmine 2019

When hundreds of the world’s top mining executives and operators descend on the 2019 Austmine event, the topic on everyone’s mind will be innovation in the sector. And mining software solutions provider, MICROMINE, will be front and centre.

The theme of the biannual event is “Mining Innovation: The Next Horizon” and product specialists and experts from MICROMINE will be on hand to demonstrate the company’s leading mining software solutions and answer technical questions.

“Austmine is Australia’s premier event for the mining industry, with insightful presentations, interactive workshops, networking opportunities and the chance to find out about the latest innovations and technology on offer from exhibitors,” said Micromine Product Strategy Manager Mark Gabbitus.

“With representatives of dozens of global mining and exploration companies gathered specifically to hear about product innovation and developments, MICROMINE will showcase its range of software solutions, detailing the latest innovations and enhancements and providing expert guidance on how users can achieve the best results and outcomes from our products.”

Austmine 2019 runs from 21 to 23 May 2019 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. Product specialists on the MICROMINE stand (#5) will be demonstrating the Geobank (geological data management), Pitram (fleet management and mine control) and Micromine (exploration and mine design) solutions.

“Our experts will be on hand to discuss how our applications, which cover the entire mining process, can help delegates meet and exceed their business operation objectives,” said Mr Gabbitus.

Interest in the just-released Geobank Mobile 2019 is expected to be high, with the leading field logging solution boasting an enhanced user interface control, data capture, camera integration, offline help and file exchange functionality.

The team will also be demonstrating the latest innovation in the Pitram solution – with the help of a Lego toy truck!  Utilising Artificial Intelligence, the latest advance in the software takes loading and haulage automation in underground mines to a new level. Computer vision and deep machine learning are tapped to enable the on-board video cameras to track variables such as loading time, hauling time, dumping time and travelling empty time, which can then be analysed to identify efficiencies. A Lego toy loader will be connected to the Pitram mobile device to showcase the new functionality, having its trips around the MICROMINE booth recorded and then using the software to process the data.

With the launch of Micromine 2020 set for October, conference attendees will get a sneak-peak at the latest version of the 3D modelling and mine design solution. Software enhancements include new charting tools, a new unfolding tool for model interpolation, a new Scope Optimiser, an improved scheduler and advances in the Implicit Modelling and Pit Optimiser modules.

In addition to being a key exhibitor, MICROMINE is proud to be a Spotlight Partner for 2019 Austmine.

“We are very excited about this opportunity to connect with mining industry representatives from across the globe and explore the latest innovations and trends,” said Mr Gabbitus, who will be joined by brand ambassador, Mr MICROMINE, greeting exhibition attendees and handing out merchandise.
