NRW Holdings’ mining arm has inked a deal with data analysis group MaxMine to install the latter’s technology at its Dalgaranga gold mining site near Mount Magnet, Western Australia.
MaxMine’s technology will be brought in to improve operational productivity, boost environmental efficiency and capture and contextualise data using artificial intelligence to create digital twins. It us part of a previously signed six-year, A$300 million contract NRW has taken on at the site.
According to MaxMine, its technology can automatically enhance 10,000 times more data at open-pit mining operations compared to the industry standard. It can use its data processing capabilities to automatically contextualise data about equipment, sites and operators relative to each other – as well as to other variable elements like weather conditions.
“NRW emphasises good data as a critical enabler of our operational effectiveness, and partnering with MaxMine, who are a leader in fleet operations data, allows us to continuously improve our performance for our customers,” said NRW Mining Division General Manager Tim Abrahams.
MaxMine chief executive Coert Du Plessis said the partnership and others like it are “crucial” as the industry strives for greater sustainability and reliability: “The benefits from this cooperation extend beyond MaxMine or NRW.”
MaxMine, based in Eastwood, Adelaide, SA, also has a location in Gauteng, South Africa.
