Digital portal empowers operators with data-driven insights for mine-to-mill optimisation.

Data plays a pivotal role in the realm of modern mining, providing crucial insights into exploration, operations, and environmental management. The strategic use of this data facilitates efficiency improvement, cost reduction, enhanced safety risk management, and the promotion of sustainable mining practices. Vancouver-based MineSense Technologies Ltd has recently unveiled a digital platform, MineSense Data Portal, designed to optimise operations.

The MineSense Data Portal harnesses real-time data from the company’s ShovelSense and BeltSense technologies, offering data-driven insights for mine-to-mill optimisation. It serves as a robust digital platform providing access to critical data points in the ore processing value chain, according to the solutions provider.

With interactive features for visualisation and analysis, it provides actionable insights that personnel can leverage to optimise operations, spanning extraction at the mine face to downstream processing in the flotation circuit.

An early adopter, Copper Mountain Mine in British Columbia, Canada, has experienced the benefits of the MineSense Data Portal, using both ShovelSense and BeltSense applications across the site. Rudolph Botha, senior geologist at Copper Mountain, says the portal has unmatched capabilities in tracking grades and accurately monitoring material.

Jeff More, president and CEO of MineSense, highlights the portal’s capacity to maximise the value of real-time data generated by its ShovelSense and BeltSense technologies, providing enhanced visibility for end-to-end operational processes.

Key features of the MineSense Data Portal include real-time tracking of grades from digger buckets, trucks and conveyor belts, summary of trucks redirected by ShovelSense, system availability monitoring and spare parts inventory, three-dimensional visualisations for mine planning insights, an ore tracking dashboard for mill process optimisation, and a customised layout tailored to each unique mine.
