Mining companies in more than 130 countries turn to Gemcom for solutions that drive productivity and profits from exploration to mine performance management. Gemcom clients achieve significant increases in operational and personnel productivity and benefit from innovations that help them address skills shortages, regulatory reporting requirements, data management, and industry consolidation.
Every major mining company, including BHP Billiton, Codelco, De Beers, Newmont, Rio Tinto and Vale uses Gemcom’s software. For more than 25 years, industry leading companies have relied on the industry’s largest provider of mining productivity solutions to deliver software that pushes the boundaries of what’s possible in mining.
Gemcom InSite records and evaluates data for service, support and production activities from the mine through to saleable product. With InSite, organisations have an accurate understanding of mined material, providing cost savings in the mine or plant. In addition, visibility of all production allows mine and plant operations to rapidly respond to changing conditions.
Every mining business produces large volumes of information but is challenged to make it accessible and actionable. By eliminating the dependence on spreadsheets and other ad-hoc manual methods of gathering data, InSite delivers real-time decision-making data about critical processes.
The world chooses Gemcom Surpac™ more than any other software for geology and mine planning because it improves efficiency and mining accuracy through powerful features, 3D graphics and an ability to automate tasks and workflows.
With professional skills in short supply and staff moving between operations, mining companies rely on Surpac’s ease-of-use to get new users up and running quickly, while multinational operations provide better support to their global teams who can work with the same software in English, Chinese, Russian, Spanish, French and German. Mining Magazine selected Surpac as 2007 award winner for "Mine Planning and Resource Modelling."
Geologists and engineers improve how they model and calculate ore body reserves and develop more effective mine plans with Gemcom GEMS™. By leveraging the GEMS central database, they overcome data chaos and collaborate more effectively to make more informed decisions.
With the GEMS database geologists and engineers gain immediate access to organised, up-to-date geological and mine planning data. GEMS data security and auditing also provides the capabilities they need to improve their companies’ compliance with industry regulations like JORC, SAMREC and NI 43-101.
Coal and other stratified deposits pose challenges that are different than hard rock. That’s why the mining industry worked in partnership with Gemcom to develop Gemcom Minex™. With Minex, industry geologists produce more accurate geological models, which enables engineers to develop more effective and efficient mine plans.
Everyone on the mining team makes better decisions faster by using an integrated system which brings together all the most comprehensive features, including optimisation, scheduling, reconciliation and spoil reshaping.
When presented with a feasibility study, banks and investment partners want to know if a project has been "Whittled". Gemcom Whittle™ corroborates reserve statements and enables alternative mine plans to be evaluated and presented for investment approval. With Whittle, mine planners calculate the size of pits for resource estimates, determine mineable pit outlines and develop strategic mine production schedules.
Whittle is an essential component in the mine engineer’s tool kit because it provides fast, accurate results. Seven out of the ten largest open pit mines in the world use Whittle.
Mine planners develop more practical and easy to mine schedules with Gemcom MineSched™ – a new generation of scheduling software for surface and underground operations. With MineSched’s innovative, interactive scheduling canvas, mine planners drag and drop pits, stockpiles, equipment and more to generate efficient schedules that maximise productivity.
This unique user-experience enables planners to test multiple scenarios quickly and to generate and adjust schedules rapidly. The ease of use helps to address the skills shortage by reducing the learning curve for new users, allowing them to quickly develop the capacity to produce mine schedules.
Virtually every mining company involved in block caving depends on Gemcom PCBC™ to improve profits through better mine plans, schedules and production management. PCBC clients realise substantial increases in deposit value through more accurate resource estimations and reports, while benefiting from better dilution management and geotechnical stability. With decisions based on a single source of data housed in a central database, PCBC users spend less time updating mine plans, evaluating scheduling options and running profitability scenarios.
Gemcom Hub™ provides data management optimised for exploration and production, bringing centralisation and security to stored data, and rapidly delivering information over intermittent, low-bandwidth connections. Requiring minimal IT support despite sophisticated technology, Hub ensures scalability for the enterprise and a single version of the truth for collaboration between users.
