Maptek invests with PETRA Data Science

By [email protected] - 1st May 2019 - 10:22

In an industry first, Maptek and PETRA Data Science have established a partnership, which will enable seamless value chain optimisation and simulation from resource models through to metal produced. Mining companies will be able, for the first time, to use millions of tonnes of their historical performance and resource metadata for dynamic optimisation. The integrated technology offerings of PETRA and Maptek cover solutions from geological modelling to plant and process optimisation and simulation. The partnership combines deep domain expertise from across the whole value chain and, together, PETRA and Maptek offer the industry a practical alternative to the common practice of siloed optimisation. Under the partnership, Maptek Evolution mine schedule optimisation will be dynamically linked to PETRA’s latest digital twin performance models including; metal produced, grade, quality, recovery and throughput. Dynamic mine scheduling is made possible by bringing together Maptek optimisation engines and PETRA’s prediction and simulation algorithms. www.maptek.com
