Aeris Resources and Ramjack Technology Solutions today announced a partnership to further secure Aeris’ competitive position by leveraging Ramjack’s technology strategy and roadmap services. The engagement will ensure world-class operational practices are achieved through best-of-breed technology selection, utilisation, and integration, providing ROI within 12 months.

This phase will streamline the way operational technologies work synchronously across four copper, gold, zinc and silver mining complexes in Australia. Ramjack has accomplished Phase 1 by evaluating the interoperability of existing technologies at multiple sites, in various states of adoption, to uncover further productivity improvements and cost efficiencies. The technologies assessed covered production, technical services, maintenance, safety, geology and administration.

Ian Sheppard, Chief Operations Officer for Aeris Resources said innovation was a critical component of their drive to improve mine productivity.

“The pragmatic application of operations technology is an enabler for our people to innovate,” said Ian. “We selected Ramjack as experts in operations technology integration because their vendor agnostic model is such a refreshing change from the confusion that arises from dealing directly with a multitude of technology suppliers. Ramjack has a track record of helping mines to select the right technology to achieve the sustainable and repeatable productivity improvements we need.”

“We’re thrilled to engage in partnerships where expert collaboration results in innovation. Aeris knew that a standardised operational model with scalable technology would benefit them in the long run,” said Roy Pater, Ramjack VP APAC. “Our services and partnership with Aeris will deliver at least a 2.5% year on year operational improvement for them, compounded annually with any new investment.”

With information gathering done, next steps include knowledge transfer services to empower the Aeris team to get more out of their systems, make better mining decisions, maximise ore grade, exceed production targets, reduce costs, and enhance safety. Final steps include technology selection recommendations and deployment services that will deliver a major change in how data is collected and used to deliver accurate, actionable information for timely production improvement decisions.
