Mitrais co-operates with Indonesian universities in the sphere of geological and mining engineering to help the country capitalize on its burgeoning mining industry.


Geological and mining engineering co-operation

MineScape, an integrated software solution for open cut and underground mining operations for both coal and mineral deposits, has been at the foundation of a number of co-operative programs with leading Indonesian universities with faculties specialising in mining and geology.

MineScape is developed by Ventyx and sold by Mitrais in Indonesia.

The software has been introduced pro-bono at some universities: Institute of Technology Bandung (ITB) and Padjadjaran University (UNPAD) in Bandung; Pembangunan Nasional University (UPN Veteran) in Yogyakarta; and Mulawarman University in Samarinda.

MineScape consists of a number of modules including: Core MineScape, Block Model, Geological Database, Stratmodel, Dragline, Drill and Blast, Roads, Open Cut, Survey, Schedule, Underground Planning, Geostatistic, and Ring Drill Design.

In 2000, ITB and Mitrais worked together in a co-operative program to equip the students from the Faculty of Technical Geology with skills in computer-generated geological modelling and mine planning. The students were given hands-on introduction in general MineScape, Stratmodel and Open Cut Planning.

Similarly in 2004, Mitrais conducted a joint program with UNPAD to provide students from the Mathematics and Natural Sciences Faculty of the Geology Department with mine-ready skills in computer-generated geological modelling and reserve calculation. The students were given hands-on introduction in general MineScape, stratigraphy modelling and reserve computation. This program began in 2005.

At UPN Veteran, the MineScape software was introduced in 2001.

To date, similar programs have been forged with the Gadjah Mada University (UGM) in Yogyakarta and Diponegoro University (UNDIP) in Semarang to introduce MineScape to their respective students through road shows conducted in mid-2012.

MineScape clients in Indonesia comprise of more than 150 organisations, including concession holders, contractors and service companies.
