Headed by former Mintec founder Fred Banfield and COO Susan Wick, the new mining technology provider has announced its flagship product for data management and integration - SourceOne.

The solution features a collaborative platform to connect data from different sources and a datahub to store historical and contextual data. The technology is thus suitable for data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning applications.

Banfield, now Eclipse's chairman, said: "Current offerings in the market consist mostly of isolated point solutions from a variety of providers, platforms that integrate data only from their own product line, or large, monolithic and inflexible systems, with tools that don't necessarily talk to each other."

CEO Wick explained that SourceOne was built from the ground up specifically with mining in mind.

"Having been providers of mine planning software for over 50 years, we are well familiar with the needs of the industry and how legacy systems hamper the access to new technology, becoming roadblocks to digital transformation," she added.
