MineSense is a pioneer in digital mining solutions, supplying real-time, sensor- based ore sorting for mines. Their signature solution is ShovelSense, a robust sensor installed on mining equipment to scan and measure the grade of the material in every shovel and bucket. The increased real-time visibility of your orebody provided by ShovelSense drives improvements in your mine’s efficiency, profitability and sustainability. Jeff More, MineSense CEO discusses how mines have approached the ore body and how technologies like SHOVELSENSE® revolutionize how the industry can target high grade ore to achieve profitability and sustainability all at once!

HOW SHOVELSENSE WORKS
ShovelSense is creating new ore body knowledge at the face using a set of robust high-speed x-ray fluorescence (XRF) sensors installed on mobile mining machinery.

ShovelSense scans the mineral content of the bucket to assess the grade of the material within the shovels dig cycle. The location is then digitally provided directly to the FMS software to direct the haul truck, with no operator intervention required.

ShovelSense reads dynamically as the bucket is filling. Our rapid data software processes the primary data using machine learning algorithms developed for that ore body. This information is combined – in complete real-time – to provide grade and material classification. The primary data is a robust spectrum that provides a wealth of information on the ore being measured. This includes all base metals of interest as well as deleterious elements.

Valuable data collected by ShovelSense can also be used to map orebodies at much higher resolution. A first-of-its-kind capability that provides a dramatic new level of visibility to mine operations.
