Introducing Hexagon Mining

Feb. 9, 2015—Hexagon Mining officially launches its bold vision of smart change today at the world’s largest mining investment conference, Mining Indaba.  The conference, being held Feb. 9-13 in Cape Town, South Africa, offers the perfect platform for Hexagon Mining to unveil an unprecedented portfolio of innovative technologies.

Hexagon Mining is the only company to solve critical surface and underground challenges by integrating design, planning, and operations technologies for safer, more productive mines.

Combining the innovative technologies of industry leaders MineSight, Devex Mining, Leica Geosystems Mining, and SAFEmine, Hexagon Mining seamlessly links mine planning, design, fleet and production management, optimization, fatigue monitoring, and collision avoidance systems for a comprehensive flow of data across all operations. These brands represent more than 100 years of innovation, experience, and results.

As high-grade ores become scarcer and profit margins tighten, the consolidated experience and expertise offered by Hexagon Mining could not be more timely, said Hexagon President and CEO Ola Rollén.
