Leading mining software solutions and services provider MICROMINE Africa attended the West African Mining & Power Expo (WAMPEX) at the Accra International Convention Centre in Ghana from 30 May to 1 June.
WAMPEX is a major expo in the region, attracting over 1 400 industry professionals from over 16 countries. International exhibitors gather to showcase the latest technologies, innovations, and products, as well as to network. Major sponsors include major mining houses such as Goldfields, Newmont Africa, and AngloGold Ashanti.
“This makes the expo a perfect platform for MICROMINE Africa to introduce its software solutions to the mining industry in West Africa in particular,” Regional Manager Renier Strydom comments. He adds that the company had a significant advantage at the expo as it was one of only a handful of software vendors, which generated a lot of delegate interest in its latest products.
Micromine has long been known for its capabilities in the mining industry, and continues to increase its footprint on the continent. Micromine 2018 has been developed to adapt to mining operations as they grow during the course of their lifespan. The software is especially easy to use, intuitive, and is Microsoft Gold Certified.
The software is module-based, ranging from exploration to mining and scheduling. It represents a significant upgrade of the 2016 iteration, with several new features such as a new licencing system that provides end users with a dongle and node-lock options, enabling users to borrow and pool network licences.
Strydom reveals that MICROMINE Africa recently signed a new distributor agreement with ACT-ICT, which also attended WAMPEX 2018. Under the leadership of CEO Roy Chay, ACT-IT will be responsible for promoting and distributing Micromine solutions within Ghana, in addition to delivering auxiliary services to facilitate project work in the region.
