Delivering success for a junior Australian gold and REE explorer with projects in Africa

The Problem

  • MS Excel based logging system was struggling to keep data consistent with the multiple versions of logging templates
  • No data flow control mechanisms
  • Fragmented data that was stored in many different formats including CSV, Access, Mapinfo and AcQuire
  • A non-centralised database was causing incomplete datasets to be used in resource estimation reporting. Some lab results were not being used as they were only located during Expedio’s migration process
  • Historic data from several previous project owners had created unconformity in the dataset. Local grid conversions have been mismanaged and not correctly implemented to the collar coordinate data
  • Lack of in house skills and IT infrastructure

The Solution

  • Database Solution: Expedio hosting with routine extracts and reports to client. See Solution Delivery - "Bundle 1"
  • OCRIS Operational Unit (OOU): Expedio implemented a centralised fully hosted OCRIS Operational Unit
  • OCRIS Mobile: Anywhere data logging solution customised with the client’s business rules, validation and formulas
