Case Study


Northern Star Resources (NSR) is a global gold producer with a portfolio of Tier-1, low-cost/high-grade underground assets in Australia and the United States.


Minnovare implemented the Production Optimiser system at one of NSR’s Kalgoorlie operations in March 2018 – running three long hole production rigs. This was followed by a second operation in August 2018, also running three long hole rigs.


The Production Optimiser technology works independently of the rig’s on-board systems to deliver greater speed, accuracy and reliability in rig setup – leading to greater drilling accuracy and optimum blasts. The system uses Minnovare’s CORE software which digitises drill plans and plods (Digi-Plan/Digi-Plod) for accurate drill-data capture and real time transfer throughout the mine.
