MAYSVILLE, Kentucky, U.S.A. (May 2019) — Carlson Software introduces Mining Resource Consultants (MRC) as an authorized reseller for its Mining Software and Natural Regrade land reclamation software. MRC, headed by Eugene Schutte and based in Ermelo, South Africa, will be a direct source for sales and support for all of Africa.

Carlson’s Grant Wenker, Vice President and Director of Mining, and Nicholas Bugosh, GeoFluv Technical Director, met with MRC at the Carlson Software world headquarters in Maysville, Kentucky, to train on advanced mine design methods and discuss upgrades that would add efficiency to the mining methods used in Africa. Bugosh, who is also the inventor of the GeoFluv method used in the Natural Regrade software, had previously provided MRC with in-the-field training in South Africa for methods to collect the site-specific fluvial geomorphic reference area landform characteristics that are Natural Regrade input values. They applied the input values to make alternative reclamation designs for a South African coal mine site.

“We are excited about his partnership,” Wenker says. “Given Eugene’s experience in the industry, his background with Carlson Mining software, and the specific support he can provide, it is clear our users will benefit.”

Schutte founded MRC in 2012 and brings over 34 years of experience in the mining industry in both opencast and underground. His portfolio ranges from risk assessment to operations management, to corporate mine management, to mining engineering and more. Having worked in coal, base metals, nickel, gold, and zinc, Schutte possesses a diverse knowledge of functions and systems.
