Orexplore starts pilot project with Boliden
Together with Boliden, Orexplore is now launching a new exciting pilot project. The project extends over five months with the goal of Orexplore's data being able to provide valuable insights that create a more efficient mining operation.
In early February, Orexplore launched a commercial 5 months pilot project together with Boliden, a mining and smelting company in northern Europe focusing on base and precious metals. A GeoCore X10 has been mobilised at the central core logging facility in Boliden. The purpose of the project is to understand how to turn Orexplore’s continuous data sets into valuable and actionable geological insights, with the overall goal to contribute to a more efficient mining and exploration process.
"Whilst bringing new technology to the market, it is crucial to be able work in close cooperation with clients. Together with Boliden we aim at understanding the key value drivers for digitized mineral information from scanned drill core, specifically in the exploration part of the mineral value chain. A key aspect, to get acceptance in any organisation, is to work actively with changing and adapting workflows in order to take full advantage of the new datasets", says Kevin Rebenius, CEO at Orexplore.
"We want to make sure that the data supports the geologists to use their expertise for interpretation and drawing geological insights, rather than spending time on data collection."
"Our expectations from the project is to further improve the user experience based on feedback from the pilot project. We want to make sure that the data supports the geologists to use their expertise for interpretation and drawing geological insights, rather than spending time on data collection. This is a continuous process and the capabilities will evolve over time. Going forward we are hoping that others will follow in Boliden’s footsteps, to help drive the digital transformation process in the mining industry", concludes Kevin Rebenius.
