TORONTO – TECK COMINCO of Vancouver has selected GEOSOFT and ESRI as its global exploration IT solution providers. Geosoft and Teck Cominco have entered into an agreement that will enable the miner to use Geosofts data server and application software, ESRI ArcGIS and acQuire technology, at Teck Comincos operations around the globe.
Teck Comincos decision to deploy a global exploration technology solution was based on a company-wide assessment that identified ways to make exploration more efficient by increasing access to the companys large data stores and maximizing its use and value in regional targeting and evaluation of new opportunities. Paul Roberts, senior project geologist with Teck Cominco headed up the review.
When we looked at how we use and extract value from our geochemical, geophysical and geological exploration data, we recognized that technology had revolutionized every aspect of how we collect, analyze and share our data for the purpose of exploration and finding new discoveries, said Roberts. Based on our understanding of how the data fits within our workflow, we see tremendous advantage in having a global solution that makes it possible for us to efficiently manage and direct the flow of data to our geologists when and where needed. We also have projects that span several countries, and having the ability to share data, across our regional operations in a way that is geopolitically seamless is a new capability that supports the development of more opportunities.
