Winners are determined by public online voting, as well as opinions provided by independent experts participating in the awards committee.
Micromine Russia was nominated in conjunction with Kinross Gold for the joint collaboration on the Kupol Site in the Chukotka region in Russia.
This was Micromine's first Pitram implementation in Russia and CIS countries. Pitram is Micromine's premier mine control and management reporting solution.
“We are really privileged to have been selected to work with Kinross Gold on such a unique and rewarding project," Micromine Russia regional manager Boris Kurtsev said.
"After examining the outcomes, it is clear that Micromine's implementation of Pitram at the Kupol site was a resounding success.”
Mr Kurtsev said With the assistance of its global Micromine consulting team, the scope of the project became an easily achievable target.
The company's involvement encompassed the successful development and implementation of the first live underground mine control system in CIS countries - Pitram.
The solution covered a number of aspects of the project, from material movements and grade control, to monitoring of equipment states. It also assisted to facilitate the capture of all required production data, as well as centralising control over hazardous mining conditions and labour safety.
