Hexagon Mining is part of Hexagon, the leading global provider of information technologies that drive quality and productivity improvements across geospatial and industrial enterprise applications.

Hexagon Mining was officially launched its yesterday at the Mining Indaba mining investment conference in Cape Town, South Africa.

Mining Idaba is the ideal platform for Hexagon Mining to unveil its unprecedented portfolio of innovative technologies.

Hexagon Mining is the only company to solve critical surface and underground challenges by integrating design, planning and operations technologies for safer, more productive mines.

Combining the innovative technologies of industry leaders MineSight, Devex Mining, Leica Geosystems Mining and SAFEmine, Hexagon Mining seamlessly links mine planning, design, fleet and production management, optimisation, fatigue monitoring, and collision avoidance systems for a comprehensive flow of data across all operations. These brands represent more than 100 years of innovation, experience and results.

As high-grade ores become scarcer and profit margins tighten, the consolidated experience and expertise offered by Hexagon Mining could not be more timely, said Hexagon president and CEO Ola Rollén.

Rollén said: "Hexagon Mining offers a smarter way to mine.

"Productive mines recognise that technology is essential to their success. Companies will need to be smarter, safer and quicker to respond to change. Their future depends on it."

Hexagon Mining recognises that a competitive edge depends on integrating, automating and optimising critical workflows in the life of a mine. Efficiency, precision, accuracy and safety are pivotal to those needs and paramount to improving any mine’s costs, productivity and safety.

Headquartered in Tucson, Arizona, US, with more than 30 offices across five continents, the company is a dynamic network of talented mining professionals delivering world-class technology, service and support.
