Geological Data Management.
Protect Valuable Data
Geological data forms the fundamental underlying basis for resource models and mining resource/reserve evaluations. It is critical for mining and exploration companies to protect this investment with modern governance systems to control the process and securely store the data. Datamine offers a comprehensive range of integrated products for data capture, analysis, storage and reporting of geological data as well as geotechnical and geochemical information. Find which product fits your needs by clicking on the following below.
Data Storage & Reporting
Fusion is a comprehensive data repository and management suite for geological, geochemical, geotechnical, geophysical, quality control and quality assurance (QC/QA), mapping, surveying and other field data. The suite is completely customisable with the available applications: Report Manager, DHLogger, Sample Station and MineMapper3D. This allows you to personalise the suite to cater specifically to your needs and processes, while encompassing all the data management, reporting and analysis capabilities that Fusion has to offer. Both LIMS and Core Shed Manager can also integrate directly into Fusion’s database, making them complementary products that transfer data seamlessly with one another if your core processes require laboratory information management or core asset management.
Quickly store and transfer your data through a secure connection to local-based, remote-based or central corporate servers depending on the specific needs of your company. A truly innovative approach to the previously inefficient data management where databases can only be stored within the PC without remote and central sharing capabilities. Governance and security features are built-in, with only authorised users able to retrieve, update and query data from Fusion Servers giving you more piece of mind than ever before. All Fusion administration and management of reference lists is done centrally. This includes creating and modifying tables, users, business units, rock types and other information centrally and only once. With the Fusion API, it is possible to integrate non-Datamine systems while maintaining user access controls as it seamlessly integrates into your current processes with minimal disruption, but delivering maximum value.
Data Quality Assurance/Control
A key aspect of managing exploration data is quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC). Using Report Manager, you can monitor the precision, accuracy and contamination of all drill hole and point sampling data among everyone involved through the Fusion database. Gain an in-depth understanding of the risk of your deposit, and the performance of your analytical lab(s). Sampling and analytical errors are clearly visible, empowering you to take appropriate action.
For when flexibility and accuracy counts – DHLogger is your ‘one stop shop’ for all your drill hole management needs including planning, logging, viewing and managing all of your downhole-related data directly at your worksite. It is all-encompassing so that you don’t need entire suites of software, but just the one application for whether your drillhole application is for exploration, production, geology, geochemistry, geotechnical, geophysical, hydrogeology or any other related field. DHLogger provides you with all the necessary tools for quick and accurate data collection and with its advanced capability to be configured to meet all your specific drilling requirements, it is truly in a league of its own.
3D Mine Mapping
MineMapper3D is a stand-alone product that facilitates the mapping of Geoscientific features in the mine in true 3D in all mining environments. Using existing mine surveys in open pit and underground operations, geologists map the features of the mine accurately and quickly directly into MineMapper3D directly at the work site. This mapped data is then used directly in your mine planning and modeling systems. Feed your data into Fusion for a completely reliable and seamless database.
Laboratory Information Management
Datamine understands the mine’s laboratory processes and can help to decrease sample turnaround and improve accuracy of the results by automating the laboratory processes and integrating the equipment with our Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) solution. Through the use of techniques such as barcoding, errors are decreased while productivity and quality increase. LIMS also provides management and business level reporting to monitor the activities throughout the lab.
Developed specifically for the mining industry, Laboratory Information Management (LIMS) facilitates workflow management by automating mine site laboratory processes.
LIMS has direct integration with the Fusion geological database to efficiently verify samples and post results back to initiating geologists; other laboratory clients also have an interface to request sampling and receive results. Established procedures between the lab and client automatically dictate the rules to follow on sample requests; these procedures define the “To Do List” that is generated by LIMS upon receipt of a sample from the client.
Core Shed Manager
Organize and store your core box and sample bags with Datamine’s Core Shed Management system, a comprehensive asset management tool that tracks the physical locations of your valuable core assets. Customizable to your specific storage capacity, Core Shed Management provides an intuitive way to quickly find the next storage location, and retrieve any currently assigned locations. Use barcode labels to streamline the data entry process and eliminate transcription errors while in the core shed.
