Stockpiles are often the weakest link when it comes to tracking material properties through the mining value chain. Valuable ore information that could be used for downstream process optimization often gets lost during stockpiling. In order to overcome this, we've been developing our Digital Stockpile Application, which ensures that the key properties of stacked ore are digitally tracked as material is added to and reclaimed from stockpiles. This drives benefits for blending into the plant, short term mine planning, and dispatch.
