Project Goal

The initial project goal was to develop a comprehensive property information system that assists all levels of the Company in making effective business decisions relating to the acquisition, management, holding and divestiture of property. This effort required the consolidation of all locations, property holdings, imagery, exploration efforts, and legal documents into centralized databases. As the databases have grown and technology has evolved, we have begun providing data sets to mobile clients.

Business Problem Solved

Our operations utilize geologic models and mine plans to guide the mining process. These models and plans are updated frequently and rather than delivering paper maps, we utilize Explorer for ArcGIS and Collector for ArcGIS to provide the mine plan details directly to the operators.

Technology Implemented

ArcGIS for Desktop Licenses, ArcGIS for Server, ArcGIS Image Server, JavaScript based web APIs, ArcGIS Online, Portal for ArcGIS, Collector for ArcGIS, Explorer for ArcGIS, and Survey123 for ArcGIS
