Epiroc reported it entered a collaboration agreement with Sociedad Punta del Cobre SA, also known as Pucobre, in Chile to digitalize the company’s mining operations.

With the agreement, the two will, among other things, develop an integrated information management system. For example, Epiroc’s new 6th Sense Mine Management Solution will combine Pucobre’s existing systems with Mobilaris scheduler and other task management and reporting features, Epiroc reported.

Leadership at Pucobre said it has high expectations of 6th Sense. “We rely on Epiroc´s strategic approach, its collaborative work and its professional team, which is regularly present at our mine site,” Sebastián Ríos, CEO, Pucobre, said.

Pucobre’s Epiroc equipment includes Simba production drill rigs, Boomer face drilling rigs, and Scooptram and Minetruck underground loading and haulage vehicles.
