Turkish, Bulgarian mines cite proven technology and service among reasons
Tucson, Arizona, November 9, 2015 – Hexagon Mining’s busy London office is set to become even busier after winning contracts with three European customers. Turkish companies Alacer Gold and Polimetal Mining, and Ellatzite Med of Bulgaria, are now using Hexagon Mining’s MineSight software for their mine planning needs. All three cited proven technology and customer service as reasons for choosing Hexagon Mining.
“Hexagon Mining’s strong planning tools and very flexible MineSight Implicit Modeler stood out to us so much that we selected them as our chosen software provider,” said Polimetal Mining’s Chief Planning Engineer, Baris Cakir in Ankara, Turkey.
“Their customer service made us feel like we were already one of their closest, long-term clients, which is important to us as our business thrives on trust. They have Turkish speakers and the best technical support that we have experienced, which is vital to our success when staff are on a deadline.”
Hexagon Mining’s influence in Europe, especially Turkey, continues to grow, and not just in the country’s mines.
Istanbul University has adopted MineSight for mining courses and at Osmangazi University, interest in MineSight-related studies has been so great, new courses have been added and more licenses dispatched.
About 22,000 students attend Osmangazi University in the northwest Turkish province of Eskişehir. Dr. Mahmut Yavuz and Dr. Mehmet Aksoy use MineSight in the school’s undergraduate elective course, Computer Applications in Mining. The course covers open pit mine design with MineSight software. The popularity of the course prompted Osmangazi to introduce a second course for computerized underground mine design.
“Mine planning is a very detailed process,” said Dr. Yavuz. “MineSight is the best software in the mining industry to design underground and open pit projects. MineSight has more than 40 years of experience at the international level and universal references.”
