Updated: Nov 23, 2020

Mining Plus & Minnovare – 27th October 2020

Minnovare and Mining Plus have entered into a collaboration that will enable Mining Plus to offer Minnovare’s Production Optimiser technology to their global client base.

The collaboration is part of the Mining Plus ‘Mining Rocks’ strategic pillar. The pillar's initiative is designed to highlight and promote the latest value-add mining technology to Mining Plus clients, at a time when the industry is experiencing advances in areas such as automation, digitisation and process QA/QC.

Mining Plus Managing Director Ben Auld, added that “We’re always looking for ways to add value to our clients. In line with this, one of our strategies is to actively seek out technology with the potential to provide material productivity improvements or cost reductions to the mining industry.”

The Production Optimiser is a system that delivers better production blasting outcomes, in underground hard rock mines, by increasing blast hole drilling accuracy and consistency.

The value that mines achieve varies depending on the commodity and mining method, however bottom-line improvements include reductions in dilution and/or improvements in recovery. Mines have also seen improvements in drilling productivity and stope cycle time, as well as greater QA/QC and command of their drill data.

Minnovare Managing Director Callum McCracken affirms, “Minnovare’s Production Optimiser technology has been widely adopted already in the APAC underground hard rock mining market. We (Minnovare and Mining Plus) see its application globally."

"The collaboration enables Minnovare to leverage Mining Plus’s global network of highly skilled mining professionals to assist in the delivery and support of the Production Optimiser. This enables us to deliver our technology and the step change benefits it delivers in new markets, while ensuring we maintain the high level of service and ongoing support that our customers have become accustomed to.”

Mining Plus can work with mining companies and contractors to understand the applicability and value that may be achieved from implementing Minnovare technology.

Ben Auld added, “Our clients frequently approach us for guidance on their technology strategy. Many clients simply do not have the time or resources to conduct the required analysis or due diligence for a thorough valuation and implementation. This collaboration goes some way to helping to resolve this ‘pain-point’ for our clients.”

Ben Auld of Mining Plus and  Callum McCracken of Minnovare, are thrilled by the new collaboration and the opportunity to provide value to clients globally.
