Gemcom Software International recently unveiled the latest release of its InSite mine production management solution. InSite 3, according to the company, allows mining operations to link production data, costs and planned vs. actual production—the result being greater efficiency, lower costs and ability to continuously improve performance of processes, activities and equipment. Gemcom claims Insite 3 offers users a high degree of confidence in production data through real-time integration of operational data and validation of material movements, activities and surveys.
This is further enhanced with a robust calculation engine that enables mass and grade changes to propagate to material movements and stockpiles, ensuring an accurate view at all times. Mass and grade data is auditable and traceable. Key benefits of the latest InSite release include: management of production from the mine, trucking, plant, stockpiling, processing, to final product; identification of production and equipment problems that may otherwise remain hidden; monitoring of equipment performance to eliminate bottlenecks and control costs; improved alignment between planned and actual production; and a higher degree of confidence in production numbers and compliance of systems through auditing, traceability and data integrity.
