Presenting at MEMO CIM Oct 22 2019

Steven Putt, Director of Software Solutions of DataCloud, will be giving a technical overview on how production drill data is supercharging continuous improvement projects for mining. He'll first start with why it is important to unleash this rock knowledge during drill and blast operations, how software can automate MWD processing and geological modeling, and then explain what benefits come from adding a SWD hardware device on the drill.

Jazz and Seismology

DataCloud’s highest value rests in our agile, expert team members behind the technology. For some insight on the characters that make our organization innovative and powerful, meet Jamie. A seismologist and professor at Berkeley by day and jazz pianist by night. However different these passions may seem, Jamie points out that they are actually rooted in the same interests; sound and skill. “Geophysics or seismology is sound in the ground. I play piano, jazz piano, and that’s sound in the air. But its still sound.”

Improved Orebody Characterization

Blast holes are drilled all day, every day. They get loaded with explosives so operators can make big rocks into little rocks to send downstream for processing. Without adding an extra step while drilling, what if operators could access high-resolution, accurate, geologic data before loading explosives and planning their next pattern? They could improve fragmentation profiles, increase production, and cut costs

Presenting at Mines and Technology Conference, Vancouver

Our real-time orebody knowledge platform has been proven to measure rock mass properties far beyond the capabilities of legacy MWD systems. Unlocking this rock intelligence during drill and blast operations was the missing piece to true optimization. Now, we are incorporating even more data sets from various […]

Cut Your Costs by Reducing Coal Loss

Inefficient coal recovery is a common industry problem. Studies have shown that mines typically lose between 16-20% of their coal during open pit mining operations. If we reduce your met coal loss by 3%, that’s a savings of $21M a year – if your mine produces 7M tons a year with a strip ratio of […]

DataCloud Opens Offices in Vancouver

Industry Match To accommodate our growing demand in the region, we’ve opened a Burrard Street office location in downtown Vancouver. Mining is a large part of the Canadian economy and many industry participants are either based in Vancouver or listed on the VSE. DataCloud embraces this area as a mining hub. Being located close to […]

Presenting at CIM 2019

Wednesday May 1st, 9:20am, room 513C Results from Advanced Measurements While Drilling Technologies on Blast Hole Drills at Canadian Mines This presentation will compare results from DataCloud’s IoT sensor device measurements, traditional measurement while drilling (MWD) technology, and core samples. The evaluation will demonstrate the ability of advanced blast hole drill sensors to clearly and […]

IoT Sensors in Mining

Where are They? Trucks, Belts, Shovels and Now, the Drill. IoT sensors are peppered throughout the mine to mill workflow. They track locations of trucks, predict faulty equipment, and here at DataCloud, we have developed one to install on a production drill. The rock properties our IoT sensor measures are centimeter level resolution and that […]

We'll be at PDAC!

March 4-6, 2019 in Toronto Visit us at Booth 6235N – Trade Show North (Level 300) Here is a map of the Toronto Convention Center and a floor map of Trade Show North. Our mission is two-fold, to elevate and alleviate. We help elevate mine operators towards their goals while simultaneously working to alleviate the headache involved in typical data interpretations. Our focus for PDAC is geology specific pain points during drilling and blasting to […]

Geology Specific Solution Sets Optimizing Recovery in Canada & Australia

In order to offer our clients an operational advantage in grade control and extraction efforts we have released our geology specific solution sets. DataCloud’s industry experts designed them to reduce operating pain points for three of the mining industry’s largest markets: iron ore, metallurgical coal, and base metals. With these insights, mines are more efficiently separating ore from […]
