MICROMINE has appointed Fernando de Orbegoso as the new Regional Manager for MICROMINE USA. Orbegoso will be based in Denver and comes to MICROMINE with a wealth of experience within the mining resources and technology sectors.

Orbegoso, originally from Peru, earned a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering before starting his career in the IT industry with stints at both IBM and Microsoft.  He then moved into the mining and resources sector, taking up a role developing and implementing technology solutions for Newmont’s Yanacocha gold mine. He was later promoted to Newmont’s corporate office in Denver within the Operational Excellence team and became Newmont’s Knowledge and Document Manager for the global project development team. Keen to move back into a sales environment, Orbegoso worked as North America Sales Director at Geovia and his most recent role as General Manager USA for Dateline.

Orbegoso said he was excited to work with such a great team of people at MICROMINE “The opportunity to work with some of the industry’s best was a key factor in my decision to take on the new role. I think we have all the ingredients for success”.

Orbegoso, who started with the company this month, will be responsible for increasing revenue and market penetration in the short to medium term for the Denver office across all three MICROMINE products; the companies leading exploration and mine design solution, Micromine, flexible and secure data management solution Geobank and fleet management and mine control solution Pitram.

Orbegoso is optimistic about the current state of the market and sees a lot of opportunity for MICROMINE moving forward “the market is coming back and we are seeing some positive signs” he said. “Whilst there is plenty of activity happening across typical commodities such as gold and iron ore, I also see major growth opportunities across other non-common sectors such as cement and industrial minerals. This is where a product like Geobank can offer information integration solutions for clients”.

MICROMINE’s innovative software solutions span the entire mining cycle, with fleet management and mine control technology Pitram currently used at six sites across the USA, including Newmont’s Leeville gold mine which employs around 250 people. Orbegoso will lead a team of technical support personnel dedicated to providing client support to MICROMINE’s current north America sites.

“Our goal is always to ensure our clients are getting the most out of their software, this is achieved through delivering outstanding support, training programmes and customer service” he said.
