The task force has been very interested in the developments made by scientific equipment supplier and software developer MicroMentis and their intelligent profiling system entitled “Swips”. The two companies would benefit form a partnership that would allow CMC to implement the technology in all their mining operations.
The “Swips” system is used for rapid characterization of geological structures beneath the earth’s surface to improve drilling and blasting practices. It is a nonintrusive technology based on seismic surface waves which will enable CMC to visualize, analyze, and model the properties of solids.
CMC analysts’ have stated that the “Swips” system can be used as a pathfinder, which will lead to a reduction in drill holes which are used in prospection phases of mines. It will also be used by CMC to do ore characterization, during blasting operations, monitor blasting effectiveness, as well as help with mine design and roof and slope monitoring.
“Bringing the “Swips” system in CMC promises to yield new possibilities in our companies mining quality, data analysis, and product detection” said CMC Analyst Clark Paulson. “The cost reduction to our operation, as well as the profitability we can reap will advance the company overnight.”
