Epiroc acquires mining software provider MineRP to create a global digital mining platform

Information from MineRP

Epiroc will fully acquire MineRP, following regulatory approvals. Bringing MineRP into the Swedish mining and infrastructure equipment provider’s fold will help create a global platform to answer the mining industry’s demand for business transformation based on digital capabilities.

The combination of MineRP’s platform capabilities with Epiroc’s current investments in technologies and digital solutions delivering real-time productivity and asset tracking data brings new opportunities to all levels of mining organisations. Over the next weeks and months, the companies will clarify the benefit that this transaction will offer their clients.

Until now, MineRP’s majority shareholder has been Dundee Precious Metals, who invested in the firm to safeguard the software company’s intellectual property and vision until it could join a company with the commercial resources, market access and strategic intent required to fully realise the firm’s vision. Epiroc is expected to fulfil this role.
