Montreal, QC, Canada – Peck Tech Consulting Ltd. is pleased to announce that they have entered into a working relationship with Goldcorp Inc. – Porcupine Gold Mines (PGM) – at their Hoyle Pond Mine located in Timmins, Ontario. The intent of this relationship will be to define how the data from the uGPS Rapid Mapper™ product can be tightly integrated with their existing mine planning software while also ensuring more efficient and refined workflows to allow for its routine use in surveying tasks. The key objectives will be to better understand the value proposition for the existing uGPS Rapid Mapper™ product while also identifying next-generation applications that could be enabled.
In response to this new relationship, Andrew Chapman, Product Manager for the uGPS Rapid Mapper™ at Peck Tech Consulting Ltd., provided the following comments: “We are encouraged by Goldcorp’s willingness to adopt a new, exciting and potentially revolutionary surveying technology for the underground environment. It is clear that this company is committed to lowering production costs by way of innovation and out-of-the-box thinking. It has been, and continues to be a privilege to work with the talented team at Hoyle Pond, and we are looking forward to some great results from this summer’s work.”
