- Complex planning and approval processes
- Remote projects increase safety risks
- Departmental data silos inhibit collaboration, slowing projects
“This Virtual Reality digital replica of the project should be used unabashedly as a communication tool across all levels of engagement. Up, down, left, and right”

Create a Digital Twin of Any Mine Site, From Exploration to Reclamation
LlamaZOO Interactive’s MineLife liberates and integrates data from typically non-interoperable databases and legacy software across different organizational silos. Information is synthesized and visualized into a 1:1 scale digital twin of a mine site, from exploration to reclamation.
MineLife can integrate and visualize almost any kind of data, including:
- Mine planning
- Drill holes
- The specific location of ore bodies
- Local flora and fauna
- Communities and sensitive regions
Using MineLife, planners, project partners and community stakeholders can virtually “walk” or fly through a planned mine project that’s overlaid on an explorable and interactive 3D map.
Impact and ROI
By using MineLife, one resource company will start project operations two years early, saving millions of dollars, such as reducing or eliminating non-operational mineral lease fees. The company also saved at least $250,000 on site visits, and accelerated project planning timelines by 6 months.
The Benefits of using MineLife
More Efficient Design and Planning
Engineers, geologists and executives use MineLife to communicate from a centralized source of data. Data visualizations can be viewed “on the ground” from any angle, unlocking new perspectives, surfacing potential issues earlier, and speeding up iteration through quicker communication.
Better Stakeholder Alignment
Thanks to virtual and augmented reality (AR/VR) technology, more stakeholders can visit the mine while reducing safety risks, travel logistics and carbon footprint, all while speeding up collaboration and stakeholder alignment.
Truly Engaging Communication
Quickly create compelling fly-through videos and other presentation assets to improve communication and increase understanding about projects and proposed developments.
Immersive, Interactive, and Life-Sized Visualization
The process begins with a no-commitment free consultation to explore project feasibility and possibilities.
We collect the client’s pre-existing data – GIS, DEM, geology, mine planning, and more.
Our proprietary data integration process is further accelerated by the underlying MineLife VR platform.
Following client feedback and polishing, the complete virtual reality experience is delivered to client ready to provide immediate value.
Speed Up the Planning Process, Reduce Costs and Boost Margins
LlamaZOO Interactive’s Spatial Business Intelligence immerses engineers, executives and other external stakeholders in a virtual plan of the mine through every stage of its life cycle, from thousands of feet in the air, to a simulated boots-on-the-ground level.
By making access to information easier and more efficient, and then visualizing data as part of a seamless experience, LlamaZOO’s MineLife helps mining companies speed up the planning process, reduce costs, and boost margins.
