Cracow extracts $59M of narrow-vein ore through drilling accuracy
In 2018, the Cracow Gold Mine, located 500km North-West of Brisbane in Queensland, Australia, knew they were facing challenges of dilution and stope performance attributed to inaccurate drilling.
The drilling operations team decided to implement Minnovare’s Production Optimiser technology to address the challenge. The initial implementation led to an immediate reduction in blast-hole deviation, due to increased drilling accuracy and a subsequent 62% reduction in average dilution.
