Software and IT solutions provider Micromine has taken out the Exporter of 2012 title at Western Australia’s Information Technology & Telecommunications awards (WAiTTA). The awards were established in 1991 to acknowledge outstanding performances by members of the IT community in Western Australia.

Micromine’s chief operating officer Kevin Fitzpatrick says there are many people responsible for the company’s success. “Micromine’s success has been a real culmination of many years’ hard work by such a large group of people. When the company was formed more than 25 years ago we had no idea our mining and exploration solutions would be so widely received.

“Our solutions are now available in 20 of the world’s major mineral producing capitals, with these offices servicing more than 12,000 clients. Micromine’s aim is to continue developing world-class mining and exploration solutions and ensure our technology remains competitive in this market,” he says.

Micromine boasts 12,000 clients in more than 90 countries. The company’s intuitive solutions are delivered by a team of specialists who understand how the software can be integrated into an operation for best results.

Earlier this year, the company completed installation of its mine control and management reporting software in two of Newmont’s underground gold mines in Nevada, USA. The software solution known as Pitram Control has provided the Midas and Leeville mine sites with greater functionality which is expected to increase production, reduce costs and improve onsite safety.
