PRESS RELEASE: The acquisition will allow Datamine to further integrate Amine into its underground planning suite and commence the distribution of the Flairbase SIMS production planning and reporting system globally.

Based in Montreal, Canada, Flairbase has been providing its software solutions to customers in the Americas since 1993.

Amine is a detailed design, short-term planning and survey solution for underground mines. Its visual interface allows users to manage drawings, design layouts, evaluate resources, work in 3-D or with 2-D sections, perform automated surveys, and more.

The SIMS solution is a mine production management system that keeps track of all your mining activities, equipment, locations, people and consumables. Real-time transparency and reporting provides mine operators with tools to make informed decisions to optimise short-term operational performance.

Dylan Webb, technology and M&A director at Datamine, said: "We are excited to further strengthen Datamine's software portfolio for short-term planning and operations management. Through our previous distribution partnership, we know that Flairbase has a high-quality, committed team. We are excited that the entire team, including the founders Gaetan Leonard and James Leung, have decided to stay with the business and work even more closely with Datamine to take the Flairbase technology to our global customer base of more than 2,000 sites."
