Datamine, a Company in South Africa with the aim of helping to maximising the entire value chain of mines, has donated a software for exploration, resource modeling and mine planning to the University of Mines and Technology for the benefit of students and staff of the Departments of Mining and Geological Engineering valued at 9.2 million US dollars. Datamine donated 30 licenses each for the mining and geology solutions to the University. According to Mr Eben Assan, the Business Lead in charge of Datamine West Africa, , the donation of the two software applications was a University initiative they had embarked on globally to support the training of professionals in the fields of mining and geology.

As part of the donation, a 3-day workshop was organised by Datamine for some Faculty members of the Departments of Mining and Geological Engineering. The workshop was facilitated by Mr Raphael Gibeli, a junior consultant on Mine Planning from Datamine. The workshop which was held in the Mine Planning and Design Laboratory of the Department of Mining Engineering focused on Studio Fundamentals in Datamine which included studio OP interface and file management, customising studio operations, control bars, zooming controls, defining planes on a 3D window, defining planes on a VR or design window, setting a clipping, design tools and data filtering.
 
The Head of Department of Mining Engineering, Dr George Agyei on behalf of the Vice Chancellor, Prof J. S. Y. Kuma, expressed the appreciation of the University to Datamine for their support and for making this software available for the training of staff and students. According to him this gesture will go a long way to increase the capacity and knowledge of both staff and students in their quest to apprise themselves of new technology in the minerals industry.
