OptiDrill discussion at CSM Business Breakfast

December 4, 2022 by

July’s CSM business breakfast will see updates from two key R&D projects in the sector; OptiDrill & Autonomous Robotic InSpEction (ARISE)

Kevin Mallin, from Geolorn Limited a drilling focused, project management company, providing specialised services to the resource, mineral and construction sectors will talk about the OptiDrill project. OptiDrill; Optimisation of Geothermal Drilling Operation with Machine Learning.

OptiDrill’s objective is to develop a drilling advisory system utilising novel sensor and machine learning methods to predict ROP, lithology, drilling problems, well completion and enhancement and finally to unite those methods under one system to enable drilling process optimisation and intelligent decision making.

Declan Vogt, Lecturer in Robotic and Automated Mining at Camborne School of Mines will provide an update on the Autonomous Robotic InSpEction (ARISE) project funded by Innovate UK which aims to implement autonomous surveys of geotechnical conditions during the normally unproductive period immediately after the blast when workers vacate the mine due to post-blasting fumes and seismic risk.
