The system transports 2,100 tons of limestone and marl every hour to cover the demand for the cement production. Partnership: Artificial Intelligence Predicts Gold Mineralization Goldcorp and IBM Canada announced IBM Exploration with Watson will improve predictability for gold mineralization. The solution, codeveloped by the companies, applies artificial intelligence to predict the potential for gold mineralization and uses powerful search and query capabil- ities across a range of exploration data- sets, the partnership reported. Developed using data from Goldcorp's Red Lake Gold Mines in northern Ontario, IBM Explo- ration with Watson leverages spatial an- alytics, machine learning and predictive models, helping explorers locate key in- formation and develop geological extrap- olations in a fraction of the time and cost of traditional methods, the partnership reported. At Red Lake, IBM Exploration with Watson provided independent sup- port to drill targets planned by geologists via traditional methods and proposed new targets, which were subsequently verified. Drilling of some of these new targets is ongoing, with the first target yielding the predicted mineralization at the expected depth, the partnership reported. The IBM Watson initiative recently earned Gold- corp a prestigious Ingenious Award in the large private sector category from the In- formation Technology Association of Can- ada (ITAC). The ITAC award for Goldcorp's Cognitive Journey recognizes excellence in the use of information and commu- nications technology by organizations to solve problems, improve performance, in- troduce new services and grow business. Siemens Tapped for Plant Automation, Hoisting, Conveyor Solutions OLKO-Maschinentechnik GmbH tapped Seimens to supply two Blair Multi-Rope machines to the the Woodsmith mine run by Sirius Minerals, a producer of poly- halite. One hoist is used as a so-called production winder for material hoisting. The other is used as a service winder for personal transport, with a capacity of 35 tons, Siemens reported. The Polyhalite is hoisted from approximately 1,450 m be- low sea level to the surface at a speed of 18 m per second. The delivery includes a medium-voltage synchronous motor with an output of 9.3 megawatts and a torque of 1,550 kilonewton meters for each ma- chine, which are powered directly from a medium-voltage Sinamics SM150 (PWM) frequency converter. Additionally, Siemens reported ex- clusive cooperation with MineSense on COMPANY PROFILE-PAID ADVERTISEMENT A gradient of 22° is reached where the terrain is steepest. (Photo: Doppelmayr) As diverse as the requirements in min - ing and tunnelling and especially in underground mining are, Hermann Paus Maschinenfabrik has been developing and producing customized quality vehicle and machine solutions for 50 years. This year, 2018, Paus celebrates 50 years anniversary. 50 years "Paus.... the people who care" means cultivating dia- logue with industry experts and customers. With professionalism, experience and inno- vation, successful solutions are created for customers who meet the requirements for quality, environmental friendliness, com- pressive strength, safety and efficiency. With the life of this philosophy, Paus has earned itself an excellent reputation at national and international level in the industries. With the "Made in Germany" quality promise, Paus builds individual and tailor-made mining and tunnelling machines. On the basis of industrial plat- form production, suitable vehicle solutions are supplied for individual tasks. This means that consistent, high quality is already part of the manufacturing process. The Universa 40/50 series and the MinCa series are designed as quick-change vehicle platforms. Simple, safe config- urations of different superstructures on the base platform are possible. Whether concrete mixer, maintenance vehicle with workshop, scissor lift table or tyre changer, the Universa multipurpose commercial vehicles from Paus meet underground mining requirements flexibly, efficiently and reliably. The MinCa 18A is also a multi-purpose commercial vehicle, which is offered with a range of different "superstructures": as a transporter for personnel or material, as a fire engine or with ambulance equipment. Further options are available on request! The smaller MinCa 5.1 is very well adapted to the cramped conditions, not only for use in narrow underground mines/ tunnels. As an equipment variant, it can be configured as a passenger transporter for five miners and still has room for the equip- ment. With its 4WD it is perfect for use on difficult roads. An agile vehicle that is also available in a hybrid version. Important! All Paus underground vehicles are explicitly designed and built for underground and tunnel construction - advantage: longer durability and higher efficiency. Increased safety requirements apply to vehicles used in underground coal min- ing. For example, that the engine tempera- tures of explosion-protected vehicles must not exceed 150°C. Optionally an extended cooling system is available at Paus that cools the exhaust gases to only 70°C. Additional flame arresters on the exhaust and air intake lines as well as encapsulat- ed electrical components (display, battery, switches, etc.) ensure greater safety. Paus integrates gas sensors into its vehicles. The Paus vehicle portfolio also includes LHD, dumper, scaler, grader and rock crusher solutions. Other special vehi- cles are available on request. Everything is complemented by a worldwide, perma- nently professionally trained dealer and service network. Hermann Paus Maschinenfabrik GmbH
