The GIM Channel: Special podcast series recorded live from PDAC

This week we feature 5 podcasts as part of a special edition GIM Channel, recorded from PDAC in Toronto.

We took time out at one of the world’s biggest mineral exploration conventions to chat to:

1. Andrew Scott, Senior Director, Innovation at Barrick Gold Corporation

Andrew Scott, and acQuire’s Director of Product, Steve Mundell, chat to the GIM Channel live from Unearthed Toronto. Hear what they have to say on disruptor events like Unearthed and why innovation is key within the resources sector.


2. Annelie Lundstrom, Mikael Arthursson and Axel Sjoqvist at Minalyze

We chat to the brains behind Swedish company, Minalyze, at this year’s PDAC. Minalyze featured their geolytical core scanner allowing miners to analyse drill samples with a fast, non-destructive method.

Hear what CEO, Annelie Lundstrom and her colleagues had to say about new innovations in the industry and also some of the challenges in their field.


3. Lorraine Tam, ARANZ Geo; Michelle Carey, Reflex Now and Steve Mundell, acQuire about The Connected Mine

acQuire, ARANZ Geo and Reflex are part of the collection of technologies that contribute to analysis and decision making in the mine planning/resource exploitation process of an organisation.

Hear how these three organisations are working toward better connectivity for the “the connected mine” so that all the data is available in a timely manner for better decision making.


4. Mike McClelland, Director Land and Information at Cameco

Mike discusses challenges in GIM and how these may have changed from the previous year’s PDAC convention. Hear his thoughts on the role GIM plays in today’s mineral exploration industry.


5. Jason Dunning, Group Manager – Geology and Exploration at Nyrstar Mining

Jason chats to us about the role data management plays in driving greater efficiencies in the resources industry.
