MICROMINE has implemented its Fleet Management and Mine Control Solution Pitram, at one of Mongolia’s largest mines, Erdenet Mining Corporation (EMC). The implementation of Pitram on EMC’s hauling fleet included integration to BELAZ payload and fuel management systems, along with Carlson Software Machine Guidance (HPGPS) across their drills and loading equipment. MICROMINE’s Chief Operations Officer, Michael Layng says “This is the first deployment of the Pitram Machine Guidance Solution utilising Carlson technology in the world.”Layng added “Pitram will improve operations by providing advanced fleet management capabilities including optimisation of truck assignments, tight control of fuel usage and vehicle speed restrictions and high precision machine guidance.”The integration between Pitram and Carlson technology “provides a seamless experience for the operator with both machine guidance and fleet management functionalities visible on the same screen at the same time. Equipment operators are able to perform activities such as drilling, excavation and loading more precisely, ensuring the mine’s objectives are achieved more efficiently.”EMC has been using MICROMINE software since 2011. The addition of Pitram to the existing Micromine and Geobank technologies on site provides true integration from exploration and mine design through to production, allowing for increased operational management in real-time and tightly controlled delivery of ore to the mill.Pitram is an essential and proven system for the management, control and process improvement of mining operations. Used to record data related to equipment, personnel, locations and materials data, providing an overall view of mine status, thereby increasing control and efficiency. Pitram’s analytical tools help mine controllers and engineers identify operational constraints, improve the utilisation of resources and increase production.
