‍Digital strategies are at the forefront of today's progressive mining companies. We have heard the innovation stories of large mining organizations like BHP, Rio Tinto, Vale, Barrick, Golcorp, and Glencore from mining publications like Mining.com, CIM, PDAC, and the Northern Miner. But, what about the junior and mid tier miners? Where are they innovating and how are they getting senior management from operations, finance, geology and HR to support significant investments in people - partnerships - and platforms? What was the business case that impacts their AISC and ESG targets?

Optimize ore blending to further increase mill throughput by utilizing the primary crusher as a location-based proxy for blast fragmentation and an indicator of crusher circuit efficiency.​ Mine to mill optimization relies on the ability to monitor how a specific block of ore impacts the mill. DataCloud uses the Primary crusher as a proxy for rock hardness, fragmentation size and overall mill performance.

DataCloud's MinePortal, a connected orebody knowledge platform, has evolved into a standalone solution to future-proof mine site's optimization projects during production. This exciting application is being unleashed with Trevali, the most progressive underground miner in our industry. Using MinePortal will provide vast feedback applications across the value chain empowering their teams to make geology data-driven decisions.

DataCloud's Chief Technology Officer, Krishna Srinivasan, presents on MinePortal, the connected orebody knowledge platform that will squeeze every efficiency out of a mine site’s operation and their deposit by helping mining teams truly know the rock. Integrating, processing, and analyzing all sources of orebody information extracts insights that will uncover optimization opportunities across the value chain.

Steven Putt, Director of Mining Software Solutions, will be presenting a technical overview of how the analysis and visualization of production data are connecting orebody knowledge to planners, geologists, and engineers across a mine site. Knowing the rock at all stages will identify key geological properties and variances needed to lead successful optimization initiatives.

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.”

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

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
