Mine Operations Short Interval Control Using Micromine Pitram Data
Nevada Gold Mines, Carlin Underground, Nevada, USA, 2019
NGM’s Leeville and Portals mines are at the cutting edge of technology usage in the underground environment, being one of the largest users of Caterpillar’s autonomous system, MineStar Command.
The operations team wanted to better utilise their Micromine’s Pitram data to raise the visibility of key information and help improve business decision making processes. MTS was engaged to help define and build a set of tools to provide this.
Priority areas included the status and location of key assets, material flow by type in each ore pass and muck bay, as well as heading development Vs plan.
