Presenter: Brigette Hendersonhall, Alcoa Mining
Alcoa Mining – Western Australian Operations has an annual drill program of ~70,000 drill holes generating ~700,000 samples. Drilling, Sampling and Results are stored in acQuire 4 while the drill program management from drill planning through implementation, results being received from the lab and initial domaining has been tracked using a number of spreadsheets. This workflow is being migrated to the acQuire GIM Suite utilising the Prospects compound and the Jobs compound from the activities and contracts module. The JobCode identifies the annual drill program and the prospect identifies the smaller planning units within the annual drill program.
