The ongoing electrification of the society requires the mining industry to recover significantly more metals in the coming years from lower ore grades.

Mining operations are battling variations in ore properties and mineral content that can significantly affect the processing plants’ ability to achieve a stable recovery rate.

To address these challenges, SentianAI and XORE are announcing their strategic cooperation today.

XORE’s technology for real time classification together with SentianAI’s machine learning (ML) technology enables improved recovery rates by ensuring that correct and timely actions are taken.

SentianAI’s new generation of AI powered supervisory control system proactively adapts process control variables based on data from XORE’s analyzer and other process data. It takes into account variations in ore properties and mineral content as well as variations caused by human factors.

“We are very pleased with the cooperation with XORE and we are looking forward to working together with the ambition to help mining operations improve their business with the latest in AI and sensor technology in combination”, comments Martin Rugfelt, founder and CEO at SentianAI.

XORE’s X-Ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers are installed in the concentrator plants of mining operations all over the world. By exposing a sample to x-rays, an analyzer can instantly collect data to quantify its metal contents.

“It’s one of the most important instruments for a concentrator plant because it provides real-time data on what’s happening throughout the process,” explains Mikael Normark, founder and CEO at XORE.

“Through the combination of XORE’s XRF analyzers and SentianAI’s supervisory control system, we offer clients a foundation for informed decisions, whether man-made or fully automated, to help significantly raise the plant’s overall efficiency”, Normark concludes.
