(CercleFinance.com) – Capgemini announces that it has worked in close collaboration with the mining and metallurgical company Eramet in order to transform, thanks to artificial intelligence, the mining operations of the subsidiary ‘Grande Côte Opérations’ (GCO) in Senegal.
Eramet operates in this country through its local subsidiary GCO, which produces mineral sands. To extract the minerals from the sand, the company has an itinerant mine consisting of a dredge and a concentration plant.
GCO and Capgemini started in 2020 to develop a roadmap including optimization plans for mine route, water management, mining mechanism and energy consumption.
From there was born ‘Connected Concession’, a platform improving the census of the vegetation and the monitoring of the operated land, the idea being to be able to support the efforts of re-vegetation and rehabilitation of the land once the mining operation is completed.
Via a drone imaging system, the ‘Connected Concession’ application enables Eramet to rehabilitate the areas concerned. ‘The ‘Connected Concession’ application is revolutionizing the way of working on an open pit mining site. In fact, drone imagery makes it possible in particular to increase inventory capacity.
Capgemini specifies that new functionalities of the application are being studied to extend the tool to the monitoring of water resources, or the identification of alternative paths for the mine.
