#DisruptMining highlights innovators and technology leaders in the mining industry. Sandvik stated that it shares Goldcorp's vision in supporting entrepreneurs as they work to develop disruptive innovations for the mining industry, delivering safe, sustainable and productive mines for the future.

Petri Mannonen, OptiMine product line manager at Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology, said: "More and more, the mining industry is recognising the value of information to get the most out of their operations. Visualising - and improving operations - in real time changes the game. We're continuously working with our customers to enhance and deliver the most comprehensive set of optimisation tools for the industry."

The new OptiMine features include:

  • Smart Scheduler - This enhanced version of the OptiMine Scheduler is teachable. The customer sets rules for the system based on their operations. Then the Smart Scheduler alerts the customer when activities happen that break those rules and gives information about the activity. This means less repetitive, manual work for operators; and
  • Location-Based Analytics - Mines can now analyse and visualise events and operations on a location basis. This module gives real-time information to resolve location-based constraints, and a better understanding of the source of issues;
  • Enhanced 3D Mine Visualization - This feature builds on the original OptiMine mine visualisation tool, including a new browser-based platform, contemporary user-friendly interface, and more advanced filtering and search tools. The 3-D mine visualisation delivers a quicker, easier way to search for, and view, assets.
