Identifies accurate iron ore characteristics to enable selective mining and ore processing
Confidence in the material characteristics enables mines to save money by reducing re-handling and contamination, reducing the risk of plant stoppages, and increasing the throughput of high-grade ore when it is available.
Maps the exact boundaries between high grade, low grade, and waste zones in the working face
Enables excavator operators to mine precisely to plan, and the plant knows exactly what material is being mined
Customisable to each mine site – specific triggers for change in grade, whether as a result of change in particle size or the presence of deleterious materials, such as clays, or hematite/goethite ratios.
Benefits to iron ore mines
Improved geological and mine plan certainty for mine optimisation
Reduced errors through real-time performance to plan monitoring
Increases the throughput of high-grade ore when it is available.
Improved shipping, logistics, and product value creation through more accurate forecasting.
