    • Applied Mine Wireless Mesh Solutions & Applications An approach to efficiently running a Mine Presented by Grant Wilmot
    • Agenda Introduction •  Minetec understands the trials and tribulations of mining  Minetec knows what's required and can help you to run your mine efficiently Tropos Architecture •  What is offered in a Tropos Solution  How does this work & why does it suit our industry Minetec’s Applied Tropos Powered Solution •  Why use Minetec with this solution  Minetec’s Implementation of this mesh solution  Minetec’s Installation Service and Support Summary •
    • Minetec Knows Mining Minetec Communications was founded in the year 2000 Demand for specialised technical expertise in the oil, gas and mining industries. We are well established in the Australian resource industry with clients such as:  Argyle Diamond Mine – Rio Tinto  Pilbara Iron – Rio Tinto  Fortescue Metals Group (FMG) – Pilbara Mining Alliance  Mt Keith Nickel – BHP Billiton  Sunrise Dam – Anglo Ashanti  Burton Coal – Thiess The above operations have various communications/electronic systems on site with Minetec providing full time technical labour and expertise 24/7 with a qualified backup team available in Perth to support onsite technical services.
    • Minetec Knows Mining Minetec engineer, supply, install, maintain and repair all areas of:  Two Way Radio Communications  Remote monitoring systems  Mine management systems  Leaky Feeder Networks  Turnkey Electronic Solutions  Solar Power Applications  Mine Wireless Mesh Solutions
    • What do Mine Managers Require? Mine, Maintenance, Production and Process Managers see it as a priority to reduce costs, streamline and increase the efficiency of their mine. This may be achieved by monitoring and acting on the following: Critical Production Metrics  Measure Staff Efficiency  Collect Plant Running data  These controllable factors ultimately dictate the following Quality and Rates of Production  Quality Production planning  Overhead costs  Minimise Unscheduled Plant Downtime  Lets also remember; we as miners are still bound by tight government & safety regulations which must be adhered too – this makes the above mentioned metrics all the more valuable in maintaining standards which have not been relaxed as a result of the GEC.
