In some mines, surveyors risk dangerous conditions to mark ore boundaries, patterns, and special dozer projects. Operators must keep daily logs of work completed during their shift, hoping to avoid errors. It’s hard to keep track of assigned tasks with handwritten logs! As a result, numerous hours of rework are sometimes necessary to ensure level benches. High-grade material can end up at the wrong dump location. And poorly constructed roads, dumps, and ramps cause extra wear and tear on haulage equipment.
The Machine Guidance Suite provides a high-precision, open-pit option to solve these challenges. HxGN MineOperate OP Pro HP is a high-precision guidance solution for dozers, drills, and loading equipment. The solution enables loading equipment to improve bench elevations, reduce dilution, and decrease rework. For dozers, the solution provides operators with easy-to-visualize design plans, minimizing costs by eliminating the need for grade staking and survey crews. And for drills, the solution enables drilling to the right position and elevation the first time, every time.
Mining Management Software
MineOperate OP Pro HP will give you accuracy and instantaneous feedback, meaning improved loading times across fleet, less mis-routed material, fewer hours of rework on ramps, roads, and benches, and fewer over- and under-drilled holes. It will improve the quality of material produced and improve fragmentation with precise drillhole placement and depth.
MineOperate OP Pro HP integrates with HxGN MineOperate OP Pro LP to know the exact location of haulage equipment, providing loading equipment operators more accurate ETAs. Operators can maintain production and accommodate for schedule cleanup, short moves, and other small delays.
The solution includes payload feedback integration with third-party weigh systems to reduce the number of truck overloads. It also features grade control integration with the HxGN MinePlan portfolio, offering simple methods of transferring designs to field equipment.
And thanks to its integration with HxGN MineEnterprise Platform, MineOperate OP Pro HP provides customers with a single source for reporting and support across the entire fleet.
