MICROMINE’s mining experts will showcase the capabilities of the company’s leading mine control and management reporting solution, Pitram. Pitram manages and processes mine site data in real-time. As a scalable solution, it is suitable for open pit and underground mine construction and production.

Greater control allows operations to increase production, reduce costs, and improve safety and business intelligence capabilities”.
Another site benefiting from Pitram is Cayeli Bakir Isletmeri (CBI), an underground copper and zinc mine located on the Black Sea coast of north-eastern Turkey.
CBI Mine Manager, Phil Jay, comments “Since its implementation, Pitram has assisted CBI to double the number of mine activities achieving targets. Of the mine activities monitored, there has been a 10% average increase in productivity”.
