On March 10th and 11th, AFR Software held a workshop devoted to the creation of field geological and geotechnical documentation using modern software and core bench. The workshop was carried out with the support of Yakutskgeologia JSC and in partnership with SRK Consulting (Russia) Ltd.
Keeping in tune with the times, the workshop was run both offline and online, with Geowebinar platform, and live webcasting to YouTube.
The first speaker Alexey Romanov, lead geologist at “Mineralno-Syryeviye Aktivy”, demonstrated how resource estimation could be affected by the quality of primary geological data by the example of exploration projects in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). Mikhail Demidovich, head of installation department at AGR Software, touched upon organization of a modern workstation for geologists. The presentation made by Ivan Livinskiy, head of geomechanics and hydrogeology department at SRK Consulting, was devoted to collection of geomechanical data, including drilling of oriented core.
The second day of the workshop was opened by Mikhail Demidovich, who shared the experience of managing exploration projects with the help of the AGR Data Management Server. The speaker told about cloud storage, data exchange and the impact on real-time mineral estimation / re-estimation of a deposit. Sergey Gashko, structural geologist at SRK Consulting, spoke about results of geomechanical logging and explained how they can be treated and used. Later on, Ivan Livinskiy highlighted the specifics of different rock mass rating systems.
We are grateful to Yakutskgeologia JSC for assistance and SRK Consulting for sharing all concerns and informative presentations.
AGR Software remains open to cooperation. Development and high-quality standards are a top priority for us!
