MiPlan’s MiD&B application will provide immediate enhancements to Hexagon Mining’s blast design solution, and significant benefits for customers.

Hexagon Mining president, Hélio Samora, said MiPlan’s solutions suite will be a formidable addition to the company’s technology portfolio: “Safer, more productive mines depend on making sense of their data. MiPlan’s range of apps represents a scalable, real-time mobile production management solution.”

Samora said that MiPlan’s unique and comprehensive MiiNT platform is particularly significant for Hexagon Mining customers. MiiNT supports the data management, analysis, and reporting needs of any sized operation. The solution streamlines data flows between traditionally disparate systems and departments, simplifies on-demand data interrogation, trend analysis, and reporting over live operational data.

Samora added that blast engineers will welcome the addition of MiD&B: “This will close the loop on design, field data capture, reconciliation, and reporting,” he said.

MiPlan managing director, Robert Daw, added: “It is a fantastic outcome for our existing and future clients, not to mention the MiPlan team. The range, experience, and calibre of the Hexagon group will contribute to the continued improvement of our existing offerings and provide a great platform for the next generation of solutions that mining businesses need to stay competitive. An acquisition by Hexagon held great appeal from the beginning due to our complementary solutions delivering immediate benefit to the market. It is also a big leap forward in our vision of aligned mines.”
