3D visualization to ramp up speed, accuracy on drilling projects

Seequent, a developer of visual data science software and IMDEX, specializing in subsurface intelligence solutions, today announced an partnership to deliver a real-time 3D visualisation solution for the mining and exploration industry, aimed to improve the speed and accuracy of decision-making for drilling projects.

Seequent and IMDEX are collaborating to integrate IMDEX HUB-IQ, which provides access to sub-surface data and Central, Seequent’s centralised model management solution for visualisation, tracking and management of an organisation’s geological data.

The integration will enable live 3D data collected in the field and synced to IMDEX HUB-IQ to be linked in real-time to the same project in Central, enabling 3D visualisation of downhole survey and structural geology data.

This is a mining industry first, enabling drill hole progress to be reviewed in Central's 3D Browser alongside the planned program and current geological interpretation. The new software will be showcased at Seequent’s Lyceum innovation event in Vancouver on  November 7,  in Perth on November 13 and Santiago on December 6.

“The integration of live data is crucial for mining and exploration projects of the future. Every day there is an increasing amount of data generated and the key to success is being able to understand and respond to that data in real-time or near real-time,” Nick Fogarty, Seequent's general manager, mining and minerals said in a statement.
