Datamine Africa Consultant Bridget Modiapula spent some time in Ghana doing onsite mine visits and introductory training for Studio RM.
From 5 November to 22 November, Bridget visited various clients and universities in Ghana, showcasing Datamine software and its capabilities.
As part of our commitment to providing software solutions for every stage of mining, the trip aimed to reiterate that Datamine is always available to assist our clients and answer any software or product-related questions.
Bridget’s trip included onsite support to AngloGold Ashanti (Obuasi, Iduapriem), Gold Fields (Tarkwa, Damang), Kinross Chirano Gold (Chirano) as well as university visits in the region.
The onsite visits were mainly to teach the geologists from the region how to use the software efficiently to get the most from their products.
Her visit to the University of Mines and Technology focused on introductory Studio RM Training. As the university aims to implement a course on resource modelling, Studio RM is a great way to introduce software into the course.
She also visited the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Kumasi. Here, she interacted with lecturers and students on the benefits of Studio RM. The university aims to add the software to their Resource Modelling course next year.
Overall the trip was a success with each of the courses being well received by the companies and universities. We look forward to the sessions scheduled for 2019 where more in-depth training will be provided.
