About this Project

GeoGRAFX was requested to preform an independent audit of the data practices at Hecla’s San Sebastian mine site and make recommendations.

Services for this client include:

Current practices at the mine site included using Autocad as their drafting package and storing data sets in excel workbooks on individual computers.  GeoGRAFX recommended switching to a GIS software package that would allow integration of both Autocad files and excel spreadsheets, as well as a central server to store data and provide file sharing and backup capabilities. GeoGRAFX assisted in the data integration and training of mine site personnel in the new system.

The mine site also had 5 different local grid systems in place.  GeoGRAFX was able to merge all legacy systems into one central real world coordinate system to aid in data collection and display.

GeoGRAFX provided graphics for investor presentation and conferences, video fly-thru of the prject and drilling as well as graphics for publication.
