Our Projects

Geological Database System Simplification

Client: South 32 Illawarra Coal

Scope: GAD Solutions worked with the Illawarra Coal Group on their existing geological database solution to streamline and optimised the system through removal of unnecessary objects, simplification of table structure and addition of data synchronisation features to allow transfer between field data collection units and master database. The project improved turnaround times between field logging and validated data being made available for resource modelling, reduced external support costs, and allowed Illawarra geologists to resolve common day to day data issues.

Site Support & Training

Client: BHP

Scope: GAD Solutions provided in-field assistance to the coal database team for implementing site support and database system training for geological staff.

Geological Database System Support & Development Work

Client: Freeport McMoRan, Margosa Graphite, South 32 Illawarra Coal

Scope: GAD Solutions provided geological data management and resources to help facilitate capture, loading and validation or data generated from large drilling campaigns across multiple projects, geological provinces and commodities. Where required, development work was carried out to store modern datasets generated by new technologies being utilised in the mining exploration industry.

Geology Mine Reporting & Reconciliation System

Client: Newmont Tanami

Scope: GAD Solutions developed the online Geology Mine Reporting  and Reconciliation System for the Tanami Operations. The project involved:

  • Consolidating underground Pitram and RIM to Mill haulage data from multiple sources into one centralised production database

  • Development of operations dashboard, charts and reporting functions accessible via the web interface
  • Development of additional module to facilitate mine geological reconciliation and reporting
