GEOSTATISTICS & SUPERCOMPUTING
Creating solutions for the mining industry

Expertise

Our key competences.

Research + Technology

We combine the expertise of our multidisciplinary team to push forward the mining industry with innovative and fresh ideas.

Supercomputing

Modelling in mining is about Big Data. We successfully tackle this by fine tuning algorithms to run on small and powerful hardware.

Development

We have pioneered in the region the technology transfer from the university to our industrial partners.
