ONE MILLION – that’s the cumulative distance of blast-hole meters logged by our clients in Minnovare CORE, since the platform’s launch just under a year ago!
CORE is the software component of Minnovare’s Production Optimiser system – a secure drill-data ‘hub’ that syncs seamlessly with mine planning and drill & blast software (including Deswik, Aegis and Vulcan/Maptek).
Ryan Stimpson, Minnovare Head of Engineering: “It’s exciting to see one million meters of drilling data logged in such a short space of time. Every meter provides important insights for our client’s drill and blast operations – precise dates and times, precise drilling locations (compared to the design) and by which drill rig and which driller.
Maybe best of all – the entire process is captured without the need to decipher questionable handwriting or water-smudged ink like under the old paper plan / plod system!”
With Minnovare CORE, engineers can import drilling assets (rigs), schedules and drill & blast designs from mine planning software – down to the individual hole – and then export them as a digital drill plan (Digi-Plan), accessible by drillers via a touchscreen-tablet mounted onboard the rig. Drillers log their actual drill data (including meters drilled) into the tablet. At the end of each shift, a digital plod (Digi-Plod) is then synced back to CORE – ready to be analysed by engineers and charge-up crews.
With Minnovare CORE, Digi-Plan and Digi-Plod, engineers and drill teams benefit from a more streamlined, more accountable, data-driven system that improves performance visibility, and ultimately productivity, across site.
Ryan Stimpson: “This level of uptake confirms that CORE is already a critical part of the production cycle for our clients. We’ll continue to listen carefully to feedback from Minnovare CORE users on how to improve the software in a way that positively impacts their role and the productivity of the mine.”
