Quellaveco - Anglo American

Anglo American released a virtual site visit of its Quellaveco Copper Mine in Peru to showcase the progress of its construction work as it prepared to start production.

Minas-Rio - Anglo American

How Anglo American leveraged our platform to regain trust after a pipeline leak in Minas-Rio, a iron ore operation in Brazil.


Moatize - Vale (Mozambique)

Vale commissioned Reality Check to produce a virtual site visit to support the sales process of their coal assets in Mozambique.

A local team captured the 360 media ​following our remote guidance and utilising the self-learning tools from our Traning Portal, covering the coal mining site in Moatize and the logistics corridor in Nacala and Nampula.

Pueblo Viejo - Barrick (Dominican Republic)

After acquiring control of Pueblo Viejo, Barrick started remediating significant environmental damage left behind by a previous mining operation at the site, including promoting water and ecological rehabilitation of the Margajita River.

Reality Check Systems delivered a turn-key solution, producing a fully immersive virtual visit, with media captured by our team of 360 specialists and UAV pilots, augmented with data to complete the tour of the Pueblo Viejo gold mine to show their investors and stakeholders the environmental turnaround story and the positive impact their acquisition and operation of this large scale asset has yielded, both commercially and socially, at their investor sustainability day.

Lagunas Norte - Barrick (Peru)

In the second out of three projects completed for Barrick, a complete visualisation of its asset in Peru was created, showing the co-existence of farming and fisheries alongside this significant mining operation and highlighting its social program participation and support, including the Police Academy training centre in the regional capital and smaller micro-farming and forestry projects.

Despite the challenging conditions due to the high altitude, Reality Check Systems provided another turn-key solution, successfully collaborating with the local team to cover the site in a few days. The result was a fully immersive tour that aggregated data and statistics augmented by aerial images and high quality 360° media to highlight the site processes, water and environment management, and social projects to investors and stakeholders.

Syama Gold Mine - Resolute (Mali, West Africa)

Resolute needed the flexibility, transparency and trust provided by our applications to promote multiple programs it was developing in West Africa, so it commissioned Reality Check to produce, host and distribute a tour of their Syama Gold asset in Mali.

Reality Check produced a comprehensive virtual site tour, covering industrial assets such as the primary pit and its reengineering to sub-level caving operations, highlighting Syama's remote underground truck piloting setup – a first of a kind in West Africa. The tour included staff facilities and amenities, such as accommodations blocks, refectory, sports pitches and more, and Resolute's social and environmental projects. In addition, the virtual visit was also augmented by digital models showcasing planned subsurface infrastructure and future grid connection work, making full use of the features available within our platform.

Higginsville and Beta Hunt - Karora (Western Australia)

Karora approached Reality Check to produce a virtual tour of its Western Australia operations to overcome the travel restrictions imposed due to COVID-19 and enable site visits throughout the pandemic.

With the remote support from Reality Check, and utilising the content from our Training Portal and our innovative approach to data collection, Karora was able to self-produce its tour safely and cost-effectively with local teams. After the media was uploaded to our cloud, Reality Check built and delivered the tour promptly - proving a virtual visit can be produced with low time investment, minimal site disruption and zero COVID risk.
