Mining of stone and metal has been done since pre-historic times. Modern mining processes involve prospecting for valuable minerals, analysis of the profit potential of a proposed mine, extraction of the desired materials and finally reclamation of the land to prepare it for other uses once the mine is closed. While successful mining involves many factors, another consideration in bringing precious metals and other materials to market is the refining or purification process. The mining and refining industry’s complex operating environments are dependent upon the maximization of productivity at the lowest probable cost. Safety and security are paramount as are operational continuity and risk management.
When there is a high demand for precious metals and their significant value , security becomes a major problem and the theft of precious metal is becoming one of the most popular and lucrative crimes in the world, Smartech Security knows the risks associated with mining and can tailor solutions designed to reduce the loss in the collection, storage and transport of precious metals or stones . Technologies such as Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) allows to convert isolated data from disparate security systems and correlate different signals to identify a security situation. Our solutions enable security personnel to engage in managing security situations and not the technology behind it.
