Montreal, Canada – November 21, 2012 ─ Flairbase today announced it has come to strategic partnership agreement with Autodesk.  Flairbase’s flagship Amine mining solution is integrated with AutoCAD.   As an Autodesk Partner, Flairbase will work closely with Autodesk on product integration opportunities in order to enhance the ability of mining engineers and geologists to bring and analyze data within the CAD environment, as well as joint marketing and consulting opportunities in the world wide mining market.

“We are very excited to be working more closely with Autodesk on a number of levels,” said Gaetan Leonard, president and co-founder of Flairbase, Inc. “Users of AutoCAD in the mining industry will benefit immensely from having access to powerful tools for planning, design and analysis at all stages of a mine’s life cycle.”
