Maptek said this new opening was the result of the company experiencing yearly growth in North America and globally, with the new location set to further boost this trend.

The company already has a history in both Elko and the state of Nevada, spanning over 30 years.

"Nevada is and will continue to be, one of the most productive and significant mining regions in the world," said Rob Hardman, general manager of Maptek's North American region.

"Key leaders both on sites and at corporate offices are often in Elko for extended periods of time, testing and evaluating new technologies that will hopefully provide value for their operations.

"Maptek has personnel travelling to Elko and to nearby sites frequently throughout the year, but I believe we can better serve our clients by having a team there full time."

The new office will allow the Elko team to serve the needs of 1,140 surrounding Maptek software users, giving them the flexibility to provide in-office support and visit the 49 nearby mine sites currently utilising Maptek's solutions to produce commodities such as gold, silver, limestone and uranium. The 49 operations - 19 open pit and 18 underground - are using the company's solutions for all stages of the mining process, from exploration to operation.

Maptek's newest office will also be home to product demos, training courses and expert consulting services. The software provider already offers its products and services from a location in Denver, Colorado.
