  1. Future of Minerals Exploration Helping the Mining Industry Go Deeper1 © 2013 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM | CONFIDENTIAL
  2. HIGHLIGHTS Future of Minerals Exploration Most of the “easy” discoveries have been made and exploration is getting harder. Mineralized systems are extremely complex and difficult to identify, consequently it is not enough anymore to simply acquire information. The challenge now is to find new ways to analyze, integrate and model the collected/available information. The minerals exploration industry must now “go deeper” to discover resources both in physical and information terms.2 © 2013 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM | CONFIDENTIAL
  3. Gradual Increase in Exploration Expenditures *Data source: MEG’s Corporate Exploration Strategies.  New deposits at greater depths /  Deposits are found in areas that are increased coverage more inhospitable  Deposits are increasingly found in  Ore bodies of high grade have areas that are less accessible already been found & of lower grade are progressively being considered3 © 2013 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM | CONFIDENTIAL
  4. Response to Challenges  Advanced computer interpretations and innovative 3D / 4D modeling  Finance available for exploration has contracted and the number of juniors exploring is reducing  More and “better” use of available information including value from existing data & the way market information is accessed  Centralize and more formally manage decisions around standards and tools4 © 2013 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM | CONFIDENTIAL
  5. Recurring Problems 1 2 Require access to large Data is not shared, amounts of processing collaboration is limited power and data rich environments in more remote locations 3 4 Lack of data management Information standards are not processes centrally controlled or managed5 © 2013 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM | CONFIDENTIAL
  6. Future Opportunities & Complexities 1 2 The “internet of things” will “Systems Thinking” or continue to grow; more “Big Data” approach to devices will generate management of relevant and useful data in information real time 3 4 Improvements in More of IT is telecommunications and commoditized, staff cloud computing assume full access to available services6 © 2013 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM | CONFIDENTIAL
  7. The IT Response Technology  Manage centrally but deploy globally  High demand data modeling tools should be migrated to “On demand” processing platforms  A service integration layer to “connect” disparate data and services  A GIS and/or sophisticated search tool should be implemented across data stores.  “Librarian” tools should be implemented to control versioning & access rights Standards & Processes  Establish standard data definitions for agreed key data types  Establish standard data sources for agreed data types and standard processes for adding new data  Establish standard collection and import/export processes in conjunction with tools  Establish data management and custodian services to ensure completeness and consistency of data7 © 2013 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM | CONFIDENTIAL
  8. Conclusion  All exploration and ongoing mine planning relies on access to better and more reliable information  To meet increasing pressures, exploration IT Directors and CIOs must now face the difficult tasks of adopting and implementing strong data management disciplines into their organizations  Additionally, they are expected to identify ways to exploit new technologies and tools to significantly improve the chances of discovery8 © 2013 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM | CONFIDENTIAL
