Hexagon Mining has launched MineSight QAQC, a flexible, easy-to-use product to validate and determine the precision and accuracy of field samples. Field samples are arguably the most important part of the evaluation and design of a mine as incorrect assay information means flawed mine plans and the potential for huge financial loss.
Hexagon Mining’s mine planning software platform, MineSight, is a comprehensive package used for modelling, designing and scheduling a mine. MineSight QAQC delivers critical charting and analysis functionalities for analytical samples, standards, blanks and duplicates that return from the assay lab.
QAQC works hand in hand with MineSight Torque, Hexagon Mining’s drillhole manager. Within QAQC are components for statistical analysis of laboratory assay data, user-controlled setup of laboratory and shipment information, and integration into Torque for migrating samples after they have been validated. Housed in a secure database environment, QAQC delivers a unified toolset for managing assay samples throughout the data lifecycle.
“The adage ‘you get what you put in’ is just as true in mining,” said Planning Product Manager, Alyson Cartwright. “A geologic model, mine design, and operating schedule are only as good as the data that feeds it. That’s what QAQC addresses.”
Part of global IT company, Hexagon, Hexagon Mining comprises industry leaders MineSight, Leica Geosystems Mining, Devex Mining and SAFEmine. Together, they link mine planning, mine operations and mine safety products for a comprehensive flow of data across all operations.
