New Micromine 2023.5 release includes battery electric haulage modelling

Micromine, next-generation technology for mining, says it is proud to reaffirm its dedication to innovation and industry leadership with the launch of Micromine 2023.5. The mid-year release, comprising new features and enhancements to Micromine’s entire suite of products, “underscores the company’s ongoing commitment to providing mining professionals with cutting-edge solutions that drive productivity and efficiency.”

“Addressing the evolving needs of mining companies is the driving force behind our unwavering focus on innovation,” said Dr Kiril Alampieski, Micromine’s Chief Strategy and Product Officer. “Staying ahead of technological advancements and actively engaging with the mining community ensures we act on their feedback and are aligned with the industry’s ever-changing requirements.”

Micromine Alastri and Micromine Spry introduce two “game-changing” features. With Micromine Alastri 2023.5, users can access battery electric haulage modelling – an accurate way to model multiple scenarios for battery-electric trucks and traditional fleet. And Micromine Spry’s Reserving functionality consolidates tools to eliminate the need for switching between applications to generate precise reserve data.

Addressing these new features, Dr Alampieski said: “Battery-electric haulage modelling allows users to run multiple scenarios side-by-side in minutes. Micromine Spry’s reserving eliminates the often tedious and time-consuming process of having to switch software to update reserves.”

The company’s flagship product, Micromine Origin, amplifies exploration potential by unlocking more time for users to analyse and act on results rather than manipulate data. The latest update will also enhance overall productivity thanks to variogram usability improvements, enhanced modelling, and more streamlined drillhole planning.

Micromine Beyond allows for more rapid scenario modelling, enhanced validation of plans, and a more seamless connection between mine design and scheduling. In addition, Micromine Geobank’s Flow Designer and Job Scheduler updates break down process barriers and ensure focus is always on discovery.

OEM-agnostic fleet management solution, Micromine Pitram, has updated its best-in-class Asset Health and Positioning modules to monitor entire fleets with near-real-time data to reduce unscheduled downtime and manual data entry.

And lastly, Micromine Nexus’ Web Viewer equips senior and external stakeholders with precisely what they need to make the decisions that keep their projects moving. It breaks down collaboration barriers by providing a simple and concise way to communicate the messages in models. As a result, any stakeholder can visualise and interrogate models like a geologist, enabling collaboration on exploration and mining projects without training or modelling software.

Summarising the 2023.5 Release, Dr Alampieski said: “By continually pushing the boundaries of technology, we strive to revolutionise the industry and enable our users to overcome complex challenges easily. As we look towards the future, we remain dedicated to listening to our users, incorporating their feedback, and consistently innovating to deliver the next generation of technology for mining.”
