NSS background

Northern Survey Supply

In operation since 1989, Northern Survey Supply Canada (NSS) is a distributor of surveying products specializing in mining and engineering measurement systems and solutions that digitize, connect, and optimize underground mining.

Being accurate and efficient are two critical elements in today’s mining industry. It is crucial that miners follow mine plans accurately to be as efficient as possible. Partnering with Precision Mining Systems, Autodesk and Leica Geosystems, NSS Canada has developed the MOSS – Miner Operated Survey System and have established a partnership with Hexagon Mining as an authorized reseller. NSS Canada has been assisting underground mining operations globally to achieve safety and productivity gains by continually adapting and embracing new technologies.

Being able to connect all parts of a mine with technologies that make sense of data while integrating, automating, and optimizing critical workflows is shaping the way data is looked at. With more demand for productivity, accuracy and efficiency, companies are looking for solutions to become more marketable to their investors.

NSS Canada leveraged the NORCAT Underground Centre to test and train employee on a suite of new products in an operating mine environment and installed and showcased a proof of concept of its personal/mobile equipment proximity sensors to mining customer prospects around the world.

“The team at the NORCAT Underground Centre has been amazing to work with. The NORCAT Underground Centre provided us with the ability to not only test our revolutionary technology to allow us to adapt or overcome any potential problems or issues, but also provided a real operating mine environment to demonstrate how our technology works, blowing away our prospective clients.”
