Eldorado Gold Québec’s underground gold mine, Lamaque Mine, will be utilizing ARES PRISM project controls software to increase efficiency, standardize project data, and monitor costs and performance.
LAVAL, QC, December 02, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ — Eldorado Gold Québec, a Canadian mid-tier gold producer, is implementing ARES PRISM project controls software to help manage their mining projects in Quebec.
Eldorado Gold Québec will be utilizing ARES PRISM on their Lamaque Mine, an underground gold mine in Val-d’Or, Quebec, that began commercial production in March 2019. Lamaque is expected to mine and process more than 750,000 tonnes of ore at an average gold grade of 6.6 grams per tonne. They announced last February the discovery of a new high-grade gold mineralization zone within the Lamaque operations, called the Ormaque Zone.
Eldorado Gold Québec was seeking a project management tool to provide earned value management, process optimization, and accurate reporting.
“At Eldorado Gold Québec, we are always looking for innovations and tools to optimize our efficiency. The software ARES PRISM allows us to monitor our costs relating to our various projects closely. In addition, reports that show progress status and execution performance are useful. In general, the software meets our expectations very well,” Mehdi Bouanani, Projects and Construction Manager at Eldorado Gold Québec, said.
Eldorado Gold Québec selected Progesys, a project management firm located in Quebec, Canada, to implement ARES PRISM’s cost management software module, PRISM Cost. Progesys provided training for PRISM Cost users at Eldorado Gold and implemented the software on diverse pilot projects.
“By using ARES PRISM, the goal was to streamline the project control processes by centralizing all data in one place, standardizing, accelerating reporting, and improving the reliability and quality of the data,” Kevin McAleese, Cost Control Specialist at Progesys, said. “We implemented it conjointly with Eldorado Gold to make sure that the structure and the systems reflected their specific needs.”
With ARES PRISM, the mining organization will be able to effectively manage the Lamaque Mine project’s budgeting, resource planning, change management, time-phasing, progress, and performance measurement, earned value management, and forecasting all in a single, central location.
“Eldorado Gold Québec clearly embodies its values of responsibility, integrity, and accountability,” Geoffrey Stubson, Chief Financial Officer of ARES Project Management, LLC, said. “ARES PRISM will help Eldorado further uphold these values by effectively managing project cost, optimizing processes, and providing accurate reporting.”
ARES PRISM software is utilized across many sectors including mining, infrastructure, oil and gas, energy, utilities, construction, consulting firms, government agencies and more to manage the performance of projects at every stage all within a single platform. Clients enjoy the flexibility of choosing the ARES PRISM products they need to fit their portfolio, whether it is estimating, cost management, engineering management, procurement, document management, contract management, field management, executive dashboards, or our integration platform.
