rio tinto plc (RIO) Key Developments

Rio Tinto to Launch its Three-Dimensional Mapping Technology, RTVis

Rio Tinto is set to capture a crucial advantage in the recovery of mineral deposits, with the launch of its revolutionary three-dimensional mapping technology to reduce costs and improve the efficiency of mining operations. The new technology supports Rio Tinto's drive for productivity improvements and cost reductions across its high-quality, low-cost diversified portfolio of assets. In a world-first under the next phase of its Mine of the Future programme, Rio Tinto will be able to precisely identify the size, location and quality of ore in real time by retrieving data from automated trucks and drills operating in its mines. The RTVis 3D software provides pinpoint accurate mapping which improves efficiency of mining activity by ensuring it is tightly focused on removing high value ore, significantly reducing both waste and operational costs. RTVis creates 3D images of mine pit activities that previously could not be measured. RTVis has led to greater ore recovery through sharper boundary identification, more accurate drill blasting, reduced explosives, improved waste classification and enhanced dig rates. RTVis is a low-cost application that complements existing group-wide data technology in a way previously never available to enhance mining operations. It quickly brings information to a much broader audience - from a single operator in the field to an expert team in the Rio Tinto Operations Centre in Perth. Armed with this detailed information, operations to recover the ore bodies will be significantly more efficient and effective. The new 3D technology is deployed at Rio Tinto's West Angelas iron ore mine in Western Australia and trials are also underway in other Rio Tinto product groups including Copper, Energy and Diamonds and Minerals. RTVis also provides rapid feedback on the impact to equipment while another important benefit is in the area of mine planning, providing much more certainty about the nature of the ore deposit at an earlier stage of the process. RTVis will be demonstrated at the International Mining and Resources Conference in Melbourne from September 22, 2014 - September 26, 2014.
