Datamine has announced the acquisition of Flairbase Inc as it looks to further integrate the company’s Amine short term mine planning suite into its software offering and start global distribution of its SIMS production planning and reporting system.
The deal follows a partnership to distribute the Amine short term mine planning solution (pictured), Datamine said.
Based in Montreal, Canada, Flairbase has been providing its flagship software solutions to customers in the Americas since 1993.
“Amine is an established, world-leading solution for detailed design, short term planning and survey. Its user-friendly visual interface allows you to manage your drawings, design layouts, evaluate resources, work in 3D or with 2D sections, perform automated surveys, and much more,” Datamine said.
The SIMS solution is a mine production management system that keeps track of all mining activities, equipment, locations, people, and consumables, allowing customers to take control of costs and resources. “Real time transparency and reporting provides mine operators with the essential tools to make informed decisions to optimise short term operational performance,” Datamine added.
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.”
