We’re proud to announce that Barrick Gold Corporation, the world’s largest gold mining company, has selected rapidBizApps as a key partner for their underground mine operations as they undertake a major digital transformation across their organization.

rapidBizApps is customizing its cutting-edge groundHog mobile solution for mine operators and supervisors to enhance production control and manage operations at the Barrick Cortez mine, located 100 kilometers southwest of Elko, Nevada, in the United States.

Built to integrate with Deswik, groundHog offers an enhanced application of the short interval control system, offering seamless production control while simultaneously improving mine safety. A real-time positioning of all underground assets and their 3D visualization, provided by Mobilaris Mining Intelligence, is also part of the custom solution.

The Barrick Cortez mine will be the first installation of the rapidBizApps groundHog system, with more to follow later this year.
