Quality + Mining
Extract real bottom line value from your mining projects.
Snowden achieves efficiency, productivity and profitability for our clients through the application of expert skills across a range of technical areas, years of practical experience globally, and an ongoing focused investment in innovation.
We work with clients on projects ranging from exploration and resource evaluation, risk assessments, mine planning and optimisation, to mine data management and reconciliation, covering the full range of the mine life cycle.
Key areas of expertise include:
We combine world class industry expertise and dedicated technology
development resources to deliver practical solutions to customers worldwide
Stopesizor demonstrates an optimum mining sequence
We assist clients with the application of information technology at mine operations from exploration to mine closure. The team offers outsourcing, integration, and implementation services for databases and technical software systems. The application of information technology is addressed from a geological and mining engineering perspective rather than from a software vendor’s perspective. As mining consultants the team understands technical processes and can provide practical and cost effective solutions.
Snowden's Supervisor geostatistics solution is a world leader in geostatistical modelling, and has been deployed in over 120 mining operations across the world.
Snowden Reconcilor is a web-based application for the capture and reconciliation of information and data across the mining value chain, from resource/reserve estimates, grade control, truck dispatch, survey pickup and plant production systems through to final production processing, or shipping. Reconcilor accumulates, checks and reports on mining activities against budgeted plans and metrics. Reconcilor is the first product that not only tracks and accumulates time based data, but incorporates full special survey data to reconcile from ore body to final shipment. Reconcilor is being deployed in all four of the world's biggest mining companies.
Training and mentoring
Snowden’s professional development courses and mentoring services are designed to develop knowledge and skills that can be applied in real-world situations. These services are offered as both public and customised on-site/in-house training anywhere in the world.
