New Technology Unvailed by Hexagon at Minexpo

Hexagon Mining

Hexagon Mining will be previewing new advances in mining technology at the quadrennial MINExpo show, 26-28 September, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Progress made in the company's mine planning software applied to complex geology and dynamic unfolding at Freeport-McMoRan's Tenke Fungurume mine will also be presented in a white paper.

At Hexagon Mining Booth 4133, there will be a first look at new solutions from the company's operations, planning, and safety suites.

Operations

  • A new look for mine traffic control within Mineops will be unveiled, including an integrated GIS mine map
  • The flagship high-precision drill solution, Drill HP, will demonstrate new hardness profiling capabilities for rotary and hammer drills, plus start-of-hole detection for compatible drills and market-leading navigational intelligence
  • The latest advances in monitoring solutions will be on show, including Leica MultiStations. By incorporating laser scanning into total stations, Leica MultiStations push surveying and monitoring to a new realm of possibilities. Complementing the monitoring component will be the company's unmanned aircraft systems. UAS are improving both surveying and safety for mine personnel, plus filling in data gaps from hard-to-reach places
  • Attendees interested in underground surveying can see Leica high-definition laser scanners (HDS) and MultiStations. These solutions deliver the most accurate and comprehensive data for design versus as-built inspection, volumetric analysis, geological mapping and geotechnical analysis

Planning

  • Available to demo will be GeoLogic, a new product that leverages the power of MineSight Implicit Modeler by sequencing surfaces and solids to create an air-tight geological model
  • Also for preview will be Hexagon Mining's solution for a single, qualified terrain model, Live Terrain. Live Terrain is an innovative real-time web-based visualisation of mining terrain data

Safety

  • The latest advances to FatigueMonitor, plus the market's first vehicle intervention system will be on show
  • Also on display will be a full suite of monitoring solutions to keep underground and surface mines continuously safe and operational. From GPS and total station prism systems (TPS) and HDS to Georadar and UAS, attendees can learn how Hexagon Mining monitoring technology identifies hazardous events in time to take preventative measures and how mine plans are optimised with this critical information

Hexagon Mining will host demonstrations of augmented reality technology for today's mine, bringing together the real and digital worlds.
