Resolute Mining Limited is revolutionising its operations in Mali by bringing high speed, low latency connectivity to its Syama mining site, SES announced on 24 January. The fully-managed SES Networks satellite data connectivity solution enables enterprise cloud applications and helps enhance safety and productivity.

Resolute Mining is building the world’s first purpose-built, fully automated sublevel cave gold mine at Syama and is adopting high speed connectivity that enables the use of high tech applications and equipment, among other capabilities. SES Networks’ fibre-like service delivered via its O3b Medium Earth Orbit satellite constellation extends the high capacity fibre optic network that Resolute Mining is installing throughout the mine.

“This SES Networks solution is a game-changer, as it allows us an unprecedented level of digitalisation of the remote mining site in Syama, bringing the same high speeds as if it was via fibre,” said Jodie Hatch, Chief Technology Officer at Resolute Mining. “With this transformational capability, we can increase our technology adoption and as a result increase our safety and productivity performance.”

“We are delighted to deliver this fibre-like connectivity service to Resolute Mining, enabling them to make a technological leap and adopt cutting-edge solutions and applications in this very remote location in Mali,” said Carole Kamaitha, Vice President of Fixed Data Sales Africa at SES Networks. “In addition, the fully-managed solution means that Resolute Mining can focus on its business and the applications it requires to increase productivity, instead of network management.”
