Datamine is so excited to share the news about our partnership with Instituto Superior Politecnico de Tete (ISPT), a university based in Tete, Mozambique that has embraced methodologies and study programs that are efficient and flexible.
In June 2019, our Datamine Africa Leads, Aline Costa Silva (Underground Solutions Lead) and Bruno Abilleira (IMS Product Lead) were honoured and delighted to host two, key ISPT representatives, Romualdo Brito and Jacques Kanda at the Datamine Africa offices in Johannesburg, South Africa. It was at this meeting where a partnership was founded when Romualdo and Jacques authorised the contract which marked the foundation of the valuable partnership between Datamine Africa and ISPT. Through this partnership, Datamine Africa will have the unique opportunity to provide software and training to the Mining Engineering Department of ISPT. Their software of interest includes our GIS Solution (Mapinfo Discover), Open Pit Design and Scheduling Solution (Studio OP), Pit Optimisation and Strategic Scheduling Solution (NPV Scheduler) and Deposit Modelling and Evaluation Solution (Strat3D)
This collaboration between Datamine Africa and ISPT is greatly significant as ISPT university students will have the opportunity to enhance their skills through the exposure to our market-leading mine planning solutions. Datamine takes pride in providing the necessary skills and knowledge to upcoming industry professionals to ensure they are well equipped for their future endeavours. This newly formed relationship between Datamine and ISPT has an even greater ripple effect for the Mozambique mining industry as, there will be an increase of young professionals with the know-how to solve various mining challenges through our software solutions.
With only a few months into our blossoming relationship with ISPT, our team is currently in Mozambique to peruse the university training facilities and load our software onto the university computers in preparation for future training sessions. We would also like to thank ISPT for affording us the opportunity to brand the training room, making our presence felt.
We look forward to strengthening our relationship with ISPT and gaining a broader reach for our offerings.
