Surface Hard Rock Mining

Our technological solutions make surface hard rock mining more efficient.

Surface Hard Rock MiningSurface hard rock mining is often characterized by large faces and working areas, as well as the use of very heavy machinery to perform most of the core mining work. In this environment, instrument-based monitoring of the face and surrounding geological structures and control and monitoring of all vehicles and machinery are key management requirements to ensure a safe, productive and profitable mine.

At Ramjack Technology Solutions, we started out providing practical, easy-to use production and safety technology solutions to underground hard rock mines in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region and rapidly built up a solid business foundation and loyal customer base in this arena. As a result, customers and technology partners soon expressed an interest in adapting our business model to suit surface hard rock mining operations.

In 2015, we expanded our product portfolio to offer the same intuitive, fast return on investment solutions to surface hard rock mining customers as we do to our loyal Ramjack underground mining customers.

We are very proud of our partnerships with world-class surface hard rock mining original technology manufacturers, including:

  • MineWare – Monitoring at the mining face. MineWare leads the way worldwide when it comes to developing advanced technologies to monitor draglines and shovels used within the surface mining industry in all countries. Their key product in this sector is the Argus shovel performance system.
  • FARA by MISOM – Mine fleet management system. This affordable, tablet-based fleet management system is suitable for all sizes of open-pit mining and quarrying operations and is so effective and easy to use that it is completely changing the way many mines manage their fleets.
  • LoadsensingInstrumentation monitoring. Loadsensing by Worldsensing provides a wireless data acquisition system to support real-time remote monitoring of geotechnical and hydrological instruments for surface hard rock mining operators.
