How to integrate mine planning across the value chain

In collaboration with Maptek, PETRA has developed a webinar to show you how to unleash the capacity of MAXTA digital twin models into Maptek Vulcan block models. This will enable you to take advantage of your historical production data and apply it to dynamically update mine planning.

What’s next?

PETRA operates a platform agnostic business model, and is currently collaborating with a broad range of platform providers across the mine value chain, including; Resolutions System Maxmine, Optika Solutions Akumen and OSISoft PI.  News on these integration projects are coming very soon!

We are very pleased to announce our next Maptek integration developments include:

  • FRAGx integration into Maptek PointStudio
  • MAXTA drill and blast optimisation integration with Vulcan and BlastLogic.
  • MAXTA processing plant optimisation integration with Maptek MineSuite.

QUT Capstone Students

We’d like to take this opportunity to commend the QUT undergraduates who completed the integration as part of their final year QUT Capstone project and under the supervision of PETRA Principal Mathematical Solutions, Dr Evan Jones.  Their professionalism has been outstanding!
