Micromine now has Pitram systems in more than 50 mines on six continents

The operation, which has not been identified, is the third placement in the Aegean region. It has already installed two others at projects in Turkey, it said.

The underground mine is ramping up production, and the customer was looking to improve the development and production mining cycles while also accurately tracking materials from the source to processing.

The company added the customer also selected the system for its ability to provide OLAP reporting/analyses (online analytical processing), to increase equipment availability and utilisation and to enhance its reactions to and minimise impact of unplanned events.

Micromine now has Pitram systems in more than 50 mines on six continents, more than 10 in Europe, and three of those at underground gold, copper and zinc mines in Turkey and Greece.

In all, Pitram has 11 modules, including materials management, OLAP analysis, shift planner and fleet management, that allows for data capture and the ability to make quicker, evidence-based decisions and allocate resources more effectively.

"Greece has a wealth of mineral and ore deposits including gold, silver, lead, zinc, copper, nickel and bauxite - and a history of mining that dates back to ancient times," Pitram product strategy manager Chris Higgins said.

"International operators and miners are developing projects across the Aegean, and Pitram is providing the data insights needed to ensure the operations are well controlled."
