• Mine Planning

    Enable a continuous mine planning cycle

Mine Planning Solution

Mine planning is an important first step in the development of underground and surface mining facilities as part of a continuous mine planning process.

Our Mine Planning solution allows you to shorten planning cycles with an integrated design, evaluation, and scheduling environment. By combining geospatial and digital terrain data, you can accelerate the development of economically optimal mine plans using mine plan optioneering to maximize mining operations.

Capabilities
  • Create and compare conceptual bulk material handling design options

    • ​Create, compare, and manage design alternatives to optimize for cost, footprint, and other owner-operator objectives. Copy and edit designs with tools to rotate and move entire sections of the plant. Demonstrate a thorough conceptual design process and the relative advantage of the proposed layout.
  • Design surface mine infrastructure

    • ​Design and analyse the supporting civil, mechanical, structural, electrical, and environmental assets required for surface-based mining operations. Produce models and detail drawings suitable for ongoing project reviews, and, ultimately, for bill of material extraction, fabrication requirements, and construction purposes.​
  • Plan underground mines

    • Enable on-the-fly planning when you extend MineCycle Designer with third-party scheduling and resource evaluation software. Use the single planning environment to greatly shorten planning cycles. Create more optimal plans with quick feedback on each design choice.
