SMART MINING

CLOSURE COSTING

FEATURES OFFERED BY THIS MODULE INCLUDE

  • Web-based system accessible from multiple devices (laptop, SMARTphone, tablet, desktop, boardroom, workshop/strategy sessions)
  • An asset register of all mine infrastructure which is geotagged (0.5 m accuracy) and photograph of assets captured
  • Spatial representations of assets with associated attribute data (i.e. DMR category/s, photos, documents, asset information, etc)
  • Detailed asset determination ensures accurate costing eliminating large areas being assigned to costly DMR (Department of Mineral Resources) categories due to insufficient detail being available
  • Closure costs calculated according to the DMR methodology. Have the ability to use your own methodology and own internal rates
  • Backend functionality allowing adding, editing, deleting of infrastructure, edit asset categories, add or delete DMR categories, add new operations, as well as change parameters such as DMR rates, Multiplication and Weighting Factors, etc
  • Ability to represent closure liability estimates on the Day of Assessment and Life of mine for individual assets or entire mine for a specific year or multiple years
  • Base layers provided to assist in interpretation, such as farm boundaries, mining rights, rehabilitated areas, etc
  • Ability to add surveyor data (TSF area and volume data)
  • Trend analysis and quantum graphing
  • Ability to perform scenario modeling
  • Control of your own system, including access controlled where different personnel have different access levels

Closure is regulated by a legislatively onerous and inflexible system which requires huge financial provisions to be set aside. Geosemantic has saved companies millions on closure costs through accurate asset determination. Let us perform a more accurate assessment of your closure costs.

BIODIVERSITY

FEATURES OFFERED BY THIS MODULE INCLUDE

  • High level and detailed biodiversity assessment
  • View protected areas, threatened ecosystems, vegetation, land-cover, hydrology and biomes
  • Visualise how your landscapes changes over time and be able to assess the impact
  • Base layers provided to assist in interpretation, such as farm boundaries, mining rights, wetlands, etc
  • Backend functionality allowing adding, editing, deleting of layers
  • Reporting functionality for easy incorporation into reports

Geosemantic has assisted mines to view current and historical biodiversity assessments on an easy to use web-based system. Let us show you how to get your biodiversity assessments out of reports and onto an interactive integrated system.

WATER QUALITY

FEATURES OFFERED BY THIS MODULE INCLUDE

  • Integration of current and archived water quality data into a single database
  • Ability to visualise monitoring points on a spatial interface, this includes surface water, process water and groundwater points on the mine and surrounding areas
  • Ability to compare chemical results to compliance objectives
  • Set up alerts (email/sms) triggered for specific non-compliances to enable retroactive downstream sampling after an event
  • Base layers provided to assist with interpretation (e.g. mining right area, rivers, catchments, farm boundaries, groundwater flow directions, amongst others).
  • Incorporate biomonitoring results
  • Trend analysis capability allowing comparisons between monitoring points over a selected period of time, for example upstream and downstream of potential pollution sites such as return water dams for both surface water and groundwater
  • Data ownership ensuring access to update and manage your own data. Including ability to update compliance standards, and add or remove parameters.
  • Reporting functionality for easy incorporation into reports.

Geosemantic has assisted mines to view current and historical surface, process and ground- water quality on easy to use web-based system. Let us show you how to get your mine’s water quality out of reports and onto an interactive integrated system.

INCIDENT REPORTER

FEATURES OFFERED BY THIS MODULE INCLUDE

  • Real time recording and management of incidents on easy to use web-based system
  • Record your incident on a tablet while at the site of the incident
  • Eliminate paperwork and decrease workflows
  • Capture photos and accurate site location at the site of the incident
  • Notification service allowing concise emails or a sms to be instantly submitted to relevant responsible parties and authority if required. This can be done from the field or activated automatically by certain parameters
  • Incident management allowing incidences to be viewed by Status (Ongoing, New, Completed) and Risk (High, Medium, Low). Follow up notifications can be put in place based on time limits for addressing incidents based on status and risk level
  • Ability to prioritise incidents and view by category (Water, Air, Waste, etc)
  • Create instant action plans and track its progress with responsible parties assigned to tasks
  • Spatially view incidents and history for informed decision making
  • Reporting functionality for easy incorporation into reports with access to full history of incidents over time.

Environmental incidents have to be reported and managed where infringements can lead to financial and legal consequences.

Geosemantic can assist mines to manage these incidents, record them in real-time and ensure compliance through timeous reporting.
