Event description
Data-Driven Reconciliation: Integrating Drill and Blast with Truck Fleet and the Mill

About this Event

Sponsored by:

Learn how tying downstream performance data to upstream rock properties identifies bottlenecks and optimization opportunities from the drill to the mill. Find out what a digital twin is and how having a virtual copy of your entire production operation can help teams exceed their production goals.

When the right data is integrated, and properly analyzed, it forecasts the geologic profile of material headed to the mill. These insights, at the right time, allow operations to prepare accordingly and optimize mill throughput. Rock properties and their behavior at each stage is hidden inside databases. Steven will present which data streams should be accessed to meet certain goals and what feedback loops are critical to efficiently meeting those goals.

Steven will also go through why processing and cleaning drilling data to inform production actions is important and incredibly difficult. He will offer examples of systems that can aid data efforts, results from not having the data, and results from having easy access to the data. Working at over 40 mines, and being a beginner to data analysis himself, Steven will walk through challenges frequently seen, steps to take to overcome them, and what's to come for the future of geologists, drill and blast engineers, planners, and more..

Who should attend and why?

Production teams or executives of mining companies looking for cloud-native frameworks to unlock data-driven decision making for teams to connect the dots from rock properties to rock behaviors from drill to mill. Also, Technology or Innovation VP’s and Managers, and seniors in production teams (drilling blasting hauling loading processing); from Senior Geologists, to Short and Long-Term Planners, and Mine Site Superintendents and Managers and Senior Mining Engineers.

Steven has optimized the blasting gamut; from blast technology, drill to mill, high precision blasting, and advanced vibration control. He uses his Mining and Minerals Engineering degree to its full extent with a passion for data management. His career began with BHP, developing processes to track equipment and material. He has experience with Dyno Nobel, Rio Tinto, Kinross, Orica, Barrick, Newmont, ArcelorMittal, and AngloAmerican. Steven has worked at over 40 mines across North America and Australia.
