Shaping the Digital Mine at Southern Peru
In the Peruvian Andes, Grupo Mexico and Southern Peru Copper Corporation, are applying Hexagon’s fleet management and mine planning solutions at Cuajone and Toquepala mines, with outstanding results.
High-precision guidance for dozers, drills, and loading equipment, improving bench elevations, reducing dilution and decreasing rework. Enterprise integration offers a single source for reporting and support across the fleet.
Surveyors sometimes 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. 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.
HxGN MineOperate OP Pro HP addresses these issues. It’s a high-precision guidance solution for dozers, drills and loading equipment. It 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, it enables drilling to the right position and elevation the first time, every time.
MineOperate OP Pro HP gives you accuracy and instantaneous feedback, meaning improved loading times across fleet, less misrouted material, fewer hours of rework on ramps, roads, and benches, and fewer over- and under-drilled holes. It improves the quality of material produced and improves fragmentation with precise drillhole placement and depth.
Maximize production and time. 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 and small delays.
Payload feedback integration with third-party weigh systems reduces the number of truck overloads. Grade control integration with the HxGN MinePlan portfolio provides simple methods of transferring designs to field equipment.
