Deswik acquires mining mobile apps
The reach of Deswik’s strategic mine planning and design solutions is set to extend deep underground with the acquisition of a suite of apps that will enable operators to access critical, task specific data on a tablet or mobile device while offline, working in underground operations.
Deswik.OPS providing operations efficiency through collaborative operational scheduling and tracking
Many mines today are struggling with complex processes to align long-term schedule objectives with medium-term and operational schedules. Agnico Eagle in partnership with Deswik have been implementing an approach to solve these problems at their Kittila mine in Finland.
Rapidly create final pit designs with Deswik.SPD
With Deswik.SPD, users can now quickly generate multiple pit designs for any number of optimization runs, compare results and select go-forward cases. Final pit designs which took days to create manually can now be created in minutes, enabling planners to spend less time doing repetitive design tasks and more time analyzing results and evaluating options.
2020 | A Year in Review
In 2020, we focused on providing excellent customer service, support and training, whilst continuing to develop the Deswik Suite and improve the usability of our software. Check out our infographics!
Deswik.MDM providing technical data management efficiency
Deswik.MDM has been in use at the OZ Minerals Prominent Hill site since March 2019, providing critical data management, transparency, and governance for the large volumes of technical data required to keep Prominent Hill operational and productive.
Deswik teams up with RGS to deliver one-stop-shop environmental services to the mining sector
Deswik has entered a partnership with Australian environmental consultancy RGS Environmental that will allow both companies to deliver comprehensive life of mine planning solutions to their clients.
Deswik Mine Closure Risk Ratio
The Mine Closure Risk Ratio is proposed as a simple method of measuring Life of Mine risks related to mine closure. This paper looks at the Mine Closure Risk Ratio as a decision support metric used to integrate mine production and closure considerations when evaluating all business plan scenarios.
Improving Deswik.CAD and Deswik.Sched Startup Speeds
Tips for improving Deswik.CAD and Deswik.Sched startup speeds when working over a VPN or slow connection.
Deswik launches Drillhole Optimizer, a module to automate infill drillhole planning and maximize returns on your drilling budget
A new module in the Deswik.GeoTools suite that allows geologists to apply an automated, optimized process to planning their infill drilling programs, for both Open Pit and Underground operations. By quickly running multiple scenarios, geologists have more time to analyze the outputs and select the highest value drilling plan.
Deswik.SO major release features AMS SSO version 4
2020.2 Deswik.SO has been updated to support AMS Stope Shape Optimizer version 4. This latest release from AMS features improvements to the SSO algorithm and several major new features and enhancements.
An integrated and scheduling-driven approach to Short Interval Control in mining
With the increasing amount of operational execution data being generated by mining operations, Deswik has been exploring how to truly integrate operational plan execution with upstream mine planning processes. This paper discusses the people, process, and technology considerations for SIC in mining, and provides a review of several SIC concepts applied in the industry today.
Deswik’s Road Audit tool increasing efficiency in open cut mine operations
Conducting road audits is usually a manual and time-consuming process. By using the Deswik Road Audit tool, sites can complete the road audit process much faster, allowing operations to get quicker feedback and free up personnel to complete value-add tasks.
Next generation technology delivers efficient, sustainable mine planning and enables technical workforces to operate remotely from site
Deswik.MDM makes it possible for technical services professionals to collaborate efficiently and effectively with off-site colleagues whilst maintaining data and approvals integrity.
