The DataCloud Platform

Cutting-edge, autonomous solutions that provide real-time, high-resolution rock mass insights.

Using the Drill as a Connected Sensor

The compact RHINO sensor package can be installed in minutes and measures a variety of previously unavailable rock properties. RHINOs are deployed on drills and collect measurements along every 1-centimeter of drilled blast hole, far exceeding the resolution possible with conventional MWD technology. Blast-critical subsurface information measured by this revolutionary tool includes uniaxial compressive strength, density, and velocity, amongst others. Such high-resolution information also enables accurate detection of faults, fractures, and joint spacing, in addition to many grade indicators and blast-critical measurements. Once data is recorded, it is streamed to the cloud to apply machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms that create valuable subsurface insights.

Leveraging the Cloud to Drive Real-Time Results

The DataCloud Platform is a cloud-based “Earth Model” platform for management, processing, and analysis of existing geoscience data, in addition to data generated by DataCloud’s RHINO sensor. By analyzing all of this critical data in real-time, the mine operator can make better, faster drilling and blasting decisions that materially improve productivity. By applying proprietary machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms in the cloud, seamless insights are available via browsers or mobile devices with an intuitive user interface. Client data can be used in the DataCloud Platform or exported to third-party software for easy integration with existing workflows.

Geology Specific Solutions: Iron Ore, Met Coal, Base Metals
DataCloud’s geology specific solution sets have been designed to reduce operating pain points for three of the mining industry’s largest markets. Our integrated technology provides rock characterization data and real-time insights such as grade proxy measurements for iron ore, geostopping above seams for metallurgical coal loss avoidance, and next bench down predictions for base metals.
