Mining Sample Extraction & Testing (BHP Billiton)

Learn how BlockApps built a unique blockchain solution to accurately track BHP Billiton’s valuable mining resources across the planet

Context & Challenges

BHP Billiton is a Global 2000 Enterprise that discovers and extracts copper, iron, coal, and nickel samples. These high-value assets must be closely tracked in order to comply with local and international regulations.

BHP’s mining information was tracked via email and excel spreadsheets across internal employees and public partners. When mining samples went missing, no single, real-time source of verifiable truth existed for reference.

Solution Benefits

  • Improved tracking of samples as they move within the organization and through external sources
  • Immutable record of core sample analysis and retrieval of long-term storage
  • Simplified regulatory oversight of drilling sites
