Micromine’s innovative fleet management system and mine control solution – Micromine Pitram – has been successfully deployed at Nevada Gold Mines’ Goldrush underground mine in the Elko region of Nevada.
Phase 1 of the implementation consolidates and monitors production data, including shift and daily production schedules of loaders, trucks and drill fleets, in addition to improving accuracy on yield forecasting. As the site’s data backbone, Micromine Pitram also ensures operational teams and regional management have improved insight into shift and production activities to improve productivity and plan accuracy.
“We believe in the power of data-driven decision-making, and we look forward to continuing to evolve with the innovative Nevada Gold Mines team to support their growth ambitions,” said Erich Guevara, head of business unit, Micromine Pitram – Americas.
“As a market leader, Micromine Pitram is uniquely positioned to support the rapid decision-making processes critical to large-scale mining operations across the globe. If you don’t have access to real-time information, you don’t have the granularity required to make the best decisions possible on key areas, including shift planning, material inventory management and safety. The implementation of Micromine Pitram at Goldrush is a testament to the platform’s maturity and industry credentials.”
The innovative technology suite has been in use at several Nevada Gold Mines sites over the past two decades, including Cortez, Goldstrike and Leeville. The Micromine Pitram team will continue to support Nevada Gold Mines and looks forward to implementing solutions to additional NGM sites in the future.
Goldrush is part of the world’s largest gold mining complex owned and operated by Nevada Gold Mines, a joint venture between Barrick (61.5%) and Newmont (38.5%).
