Sweden’s Hexagon has announced its mining division was awarded a multi-solution project at Toka Tindung gold mine in Indonesia.


“The phased deployment will see Hexagon systems for fleet manage-ment, operator alertness, blast monitoring and enterprise analytics imple-mented by the company’s Indonesian staff at the mine between now and October 2021,” the company said in a statement.


Located in Indonesia’s North Sulawesi region, Toka Tindung is a small open pit gold mine.

Hexagon Mining says it has about 21,000 employees in 50 countries, and net annual sales of some US$ 4.6 billion, according to data from the busi-ness.
