IGAN Consultores aims to maintain a vanguard position in the use and development of tools for the mining industry. 


We have years of experience and expertise using not only commercial mining software tools but also technologies traditionally not applied within the mining industry. We are familiar with the strengths and weaknesses of each software.


Instead of employing the same tools in all projects, we select the best-fitting tool for the problem at hand; we do not let the software's capabilities become a constraint to the project's potential. 

Mining software:

  • Deswik.CAD, Deswik.Sched, Deswik.SO, Deswik.SOT. 

  • Datamine Studio 3 & Studio 5, Mine 2-4D/EPS.

  • Surpac, MineSched, GEMS.

  • Vulcan.

  • MineSight.

  • Recmin.

  • Whittle.

  • Minemax Scheduler.

Technologies and tools:

  • Neural networks, fuzzy logic.

  • Conditional simulation, Monte-Carlo simulation.

  • Linear and quadratic optimisation.

  • Genetic algorithms.


Commercial solutions are efficient and complete but can be too expensive for medium and small mining operations. 

We have developed our own fleet control tool that can be tailored to the specific needs of each client. This solution aims to fill the gap where large-scale commercial solutions cannot be applied.

Main features:

  • Low implementation costs.

  • Based on an Android platform.

  • Web-based interface, accesible from any platform or device.

  • Real-time fleet tracking.

  • Centralised database storage architecture.

  • 100 % customisation of data queries and reports.

In the recent years we have been developed a tool capable of identifying rock types from digital pictures.

Based on a neural network that can be trained to identify new rock types and varieties, we have applied this tool in the valuation of dimensional stone quarries with excellent results.

​​Our objective is to finalise the development of this tool, currently used in-house, for its commercial distribution.
