October 15 – CMIC is proud to be a partner in a project led by the Centre for Excellence in Mining Innovation (CEMI), in partnership with SNOLAB, the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund (NOHFC) and several industry partners, to create a Mining Observatory Data Control Centre (MODCC).
On October 11, 2013, Sudbury MPP Rick Bartolucci announced $750,000 in provincial funding for the project from the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund. CMIC is also pleased to provide $300,000 in in-kind support for the project.
The project involves the collection, filtration and analysis of real-time data in operating mines by industry partners, which will then be streamed and assessed in real-time at the MODCC. The result will improve the mineral R&D industry’s access to high-quality data, which will lead to improvements in the mining industry’s exploration process.
