Resolute Mining Connects Syama Operations to the Cloud with SES Networks

High-performance satellite service enables Resolute Mining to fully
digitise and connect remote operations while capitalising on cloud-based
applications

LUXEMBOURG–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Resolute Mining Limited is revolutionising its operations in Mali by
bringing high-speed, low-latency connectivity to its Syama mining site,
SES announced today. 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.”
