At Snowden Optiro, they believe that every mining project, operation and investment has latent value waiting to be unlocked with the right thinking, the right processes and the right systems. Their observation is that a number of mining professionals will struggle with software that isn’t fit-for-purpose, wasting valuable time that could be spent adding value.

They have spent almost 30 years delivering outcomes to their clients, and in this time have captured and embedded their best practice within their own software products, and provided consulting services for process reviews and improvements. Their goal is to identify the opportunities in the mining value chain to increase productivity, effectiveness and profitability.

By partnering with companies such as acQuire, they can provide their clients with professional services for a best-in-class geological information management solution.

Snowden Optiro specialises in:

  • Underground and open-cut operations
  • Organisations with multi-site, multi-commodity configurations
  • Geometallurgy
  • Exploration and resource development
  • Strong database development skills
