Case Study – A well-established Diamond mine

Diamond

Case Study

A well-established Canadian diamond mine in the Lac de Gras region, Northern Territories

PROBLEM

  1. Difficulties with data flow and data management
  2. Data was fragmented and in many different formats
  3. A non-observational style of geological logging was causing delays and hindering data flow
  4. 3 month delays to use collected data lead to frustrated geologists and management

SOLUTION

Self-managed database – Expedio introduced a self-managed database solution and provide support

Data Logging: Expedio implemented a data logging solution that could be used offline with a standardised interface that adjusted the logging style of the geologists to an observational technique. This technique reduced logging time as geologists were no longer adjusting logs to fit standard geological blocks

OCRIS Logix: A stringent data management process that streamlined the workflow of uploading data from the field logger to the production database.

OCRIS Model: Expedio’s single interface data management solution integrated with our anywhere logging software centralised and standardised all company data.

Data Management: Expedio removed the frustration of waiting months for valid usable data. Data is now usable within hours of it being collected in the field. This allowed for the collection of analytics on production which identified inefficiencies that could be addressed. Centralising and standardising the data provided Logging Geologist, Geology Supervisor, Plant Operators, Plant Supervisors, Diamond Pickers, Resource Modellers and Mining Engineers access to the most current data set as required.

GBIS/Geobank Optimisation: A decade of experience in optimising GBIS/Geobank systems allowed Expedio to get the most out of the client’s current data management system.

OUTCOME

Support OCRIS Logix was delivered to the client onsite, with remote support by Expedio.

Robust system – The self-managed system has required little to no maintenance since its implementation over 5 years ago.

Validated data – A single source of validated data ensured all departments are using the latest reliable and accurate  data sets.

Reporting – Data is now available to all departments within hours of collection, management can now act decisively regarding their resource and production in real time.

MESSAGE

The driving force behind any data management system is that it delivers Always Accurate Data

neXTek Wrapup

Expedio at neXTek

The neXTek event held on 26 November was busy, well attended and informative – overall a great day for this inaugural event organised by the MineSpace folk.  Many delegates and exhibitors I chatted with really liked the 1 day conference format and the compact exhibition space hosting new and technologically advanced products and services relevant to exploration and mining.  Particular favourites were the underground virtual reality experience, a portable self-contained seismic unit and enterprise level 4G communication networks. The Expedio presentation and OCRIS product demonstrations were well received with a lot of interest from delegates unhappy with their current ‘old-school’ data capture and  management software  products.  Expedio would like to announce Tara French from Regis Resources as the winner of our lovely bottle of McLaren Vale red, congratulations Tara!  Thankyou to all attendees and organisers of neXTek, and we hope to see you all again next year.
