SHOVELSENSE®

The Power of Ore Data Visibility at mine’s extraction face

Our ShovelSense system provides valuable, higher resolution data than regular mine production block models by measuring grade at the bucket scale, rather than the block scale.

Real-time access to higher-resolution information earlier in the mining process allows for informed decisions about directing material based on grade to the mill, stockpile or waste. Timely re-routing of mined material means no production delays or additional hauling requirements.

  • Only location to extract valuable ore from designated waste
  • Significantly increased capability to navigate accurately around complex geological contact zones
  • Allows closer tracking and planning of mill feed characteristics for mill recovery optimization
  • Enables more accurate long-term mine planning and reconciliation
  • Fully integrated with the Fleet Management Systems (FMS) for automatic decision-making with no disruption to existing operations
  • Improved visibility and designation capabilities in handling stockpiles

SHOVELSENSE IN ACTION

In 2017, MineSense partnered with Teck Resources for the first full-scale trial of the bucket-mounted ShovelSense technology at the Highland Valley Copper mine in British Columbia.


Following this successful groundbreaking trial, ShovelSense has been deployed in a growing list of global mining operations, including some of the world's largest copper mines in Latin America.

MineSense Webinars:

International Mining and MineSense have partnered on a series of webinars focused on unlocking new orebody knowledge at the mine face. Moderated by IM Editor Dan Gleeson and featuring a panel of

MineSense and global mining experts, we invite you
to join us for: Data Driven Real-Time Mine to Mill
Reconciliation. 

Hear directly from Copper Mountain Mine, an operation with the potential to be the lowest GHG-emitting open-pit copper mine in the world, while learning how MineSense’s digital mining solution – headed up by ShovelSense® – is improving ore control to optimize mineral processing by managing power intensity, water and chemical
reagent use.

We will also take a look at how this information could lead to further downstream benefits, such as higher metal recoveries in the plant.

Value of Bulk Ore Sorting, CIM Knowledge Exchange webinar

This webinar will showcase the Value of Bulk Ore Sorting at the mine face in base metal mines (e.g. Cu, Ni, Zn, Fe). Bulk ore sorting at the mine face substantially improves the efficiency and amount of metal extracted from an ore body, which makes it an essential technology to support the world’s electrification towards a green economy.

The webinar will be jointly presented by Professor Bern Klein from the Norman B. Keevil Institute of Mining Engineering at the University of British Columbia and several members of the GeoScience Team at MineSense Technologies Limited, a Vancouver-based Greentech company focused on Bulk Ore Sorting at the mine face.

Presenters will describe the Bulk Ore Sorting landscape, how it helps to meet demand for green metals and discuss advances in sensor-based sorting of ore from waste at the mine face. The operation of in-bucket XRF sorting technology will be explained in detail and Value from installations at mine sites in North and South America will be shown. The webinar concludes with an overview of planned sensor developments at MineSense and UBC to improve the capability of Bulk Ore Sorting.

Who should attend and why?

Mine and processing plant managers who want to learn more about how Bulk Ore sorting at the mine face can improve the Value of their operations. Geologists, mining engineers and metallurgists involved with grade control in the mine or recovery in the processing plant are encouraged to attend to gain a better understanding of how Bulk Ore Sorting works and what benefits it can bring.

Free Playback is only available for members of CIM

Automated Smart Truck Diversion webinar

International Mining and MineSense have partnered on a series of webinars focused on unlocking new orebody knowledge at the mine face. Moderated by IM Editor Dan Gleeson with a panel of MineSense and global mining experts, the second webinar in the series will discuss how MineSense’s digital mining solutions – headed up by its flagship ShovelSense technology – enable automated smart truck diversions to take place at the extraction face – providing the biggest bang for your buck. 

Learn how real-time shovel-based ore sorting at the face, combined with automated smart truck diversion, can result in increased ore recovery, reduced dilution and optimised energy and water efficiency. Hear all about how ShovelSense is keeping operations informed from global mining operators that are leveraging the technology.
