Mira Geoscience has partnered with Groupe MISA, a network of expertise in mining innovation, to develop a low-cost 3D application where all elements of drillhole design and monitoring can be accomplished within the same environment.

The current “Drillhole Designer” in Geoscience ANALYST Pro enables the creation of drillhole targets and basic drillhole design, including deviation-station editing. This project will build on top of it to create a powerful, interactive design environment with features such as advanced drillhole target definition, geometry queries, deviation design and editing, drillhole monitoring, and links to common drillhole databases.

“This project is a great example of Mira Geoscience’s commitment to the collaborative creation of advanced-yet-practical, low-cost tools for geologists, emphasizing interoperability and ease-of-use,” according to John McGaughey, President of Mira Geoscience.

The project is a sponsored collaboration of Mira Geoscience and seven mining and service companies, with the support of the governments of Quebec and Canada to bring the results to the international market.
