The Bucket Shop

We are going underground and into leading edge mining technology. NSS Canada is an Authorized Distributor of Leica Geosystems Products, an authorized agent of Hexagon Mining and developed their own in house software, MOSS (Miner Operated Survey System), which allows miners to do some of the surveying work themselves, speeding up work on site significantly.

Business Development Manager Mathew Brown joins Mining NOW to discuss how the technology has evolved and their strategy for keeping clients up-to-date on the latest geosystems solutions including for the mine automation processes and preparing the most current and accurate DTMs (Digital Terrain Model). He also discusses some of the latest techniques in mining monitoring, safety sensors and mining planning. 

Like every episode of Mining NOW we also looked at Matthew’s career, starting with him immigrating from Scotland (including some fun family talk) and choosing Mining Engineering to begin his education in Canada. Part of what makes this interview dynamic is Matthew’s own background in mining, working for a small mine operator as a geologist he gained hands on experience then later working for Vale gained experience in high level operations. Host Jerrod Downey and Matthew cover a lot of ground in this episode including how companies like NSS Canada can diversify offerings to develop a stable and thriving company in an industry and world  that often faces instability.
