PERTH, Australia -- February 25, 2014

Minetec, a division of  Codan Limited (ASX:CDA), has introduced SMARTS™ II, an
enhanced version of the company’s flagship mine management and control system.
SMARTS II brings an entirely new level of productivity to underground mining
operations through improved 3D graphics and reporting capability, dynamic
scheduling of real-time events, and easy-to-import mine planning formats.

“Minetec has improved the intelligence inherent in the SMARTS II modules to
address the mining cycles for literally any mining method and associated
scenarios,” said Andy Sheppard, executive general manager, Minetec. “The core
of the SMARTS II system is an optimisation engine that interfaces to the
recently released Trax+Tags™ II system as well as a unique scheduling and
simulation interface. The efficiencies that result from a SMARTS II
implementation result in a more accurate alignment between planned and actual
scenarios, providing real time data from the face of the mine.”

SMARTS II provides a collection of intelligent software modules which can be
utilised either independently or as an integrated mine management and control
solution to give un-paralleled visualisation, control and optimization
capabilities including:

  *Resource shift schedule planning across complex multiple heading rapid
    developments,
  *User or machine based physicals capture for production management and
    reporting,
  *Interactive real-time shift optimisation based on simulation using actual
    machine and location data.
  *Concurrent parallel simulations for comparative analysis of scenarios for
    bottleneck scheduling
  *Full integration into the Minetec Trax+Tags for real-time machine and
    vehicle movement monitoring and status
  *Web based interface provides system control from any location

By automating tasks that are typically handled manually, SMARTS II enhances
efficiency, increases safety, reduces costs, and improves work quality in
mining operations.

Minetec Pty Ltd, (Willetton, Western Australia), is part of the Codan Group of
