Mine Planning Solutions
Accurate mine plans. On time.
Increase the accuracy of mine planning while maximizing your ability to respond efficiently to changing conditions with our extensive geological modeling and mine design functionality.
Mining companies today are under increasing pressure to boost output from their existing mines and bring new projects online quickly. To maximize mine profitability, planners and schedulers must create mine plans that match the field as accurately as possible. Planners and schedulers must account for a staggering array of variables – geological samples and data from the mine, the production capacity of each stage of the process, available equipment, machinery and manpower, customer demand and commodity prices, product cost assumptions and the health and safety of workers. The Ventyx solution for mine planning accounts for all significant variables as quickly and accurately as possible so that customer demands are met and production is optimized from mine to market.

expand Key Capabilities
|Geologic Database (GDB)||Store downhole survey, lithology and quality data, produce standard, summary and user-defined reports and graphically display the downhole data. GDB displays lithology, intervals, geophysics and correlation and contains specialized compositing and washability functions.|
|Stratmodel||Perform complex stratigraphic modeling functions including reverse faulting. Interactively manipulate 3D models including rendered displays in any orientation.|
|Mine Planning||Supporting custom programming and reporting, the solution provides a comprehensive mining-oriented function library including surface manipulation, gridding, transaction and spreadsheet management facilities. It also enables direct viewing of AutoCAD ESRI shape files and comprehensive plotting functionality.|
|Block Model||Generate 3D deposit models with interpretation of geologic data for definition of wireframe solids and export to third party optimization tools.|
|Dragline||Apply a variety of burden movement techniques including pre-strip, cast blasting and production dozing to simulate the execution of total pit burden removal strategies.|
|Drill & Blast||Use the interactive 3D CAD environment to quickly lay out an optimum blast pattern, project holes to surfaces and export hole layout reports to GPS-equipped drill rigs. Drill & Blast is integrated to produce quick blast exclusion zones.|
|Roads||Design haul roads interactively in 3D. Determine cut and fill requirements for mass balancing and optimization. Automatically generate reports for survey and construction personnel in graphical or text formats.|
|Open Cut||Generate and test mine designs for short-term production operations and long-term feasibility studies. Use 3D CAD tools to visualize and graphically interact with the design at any stage.|
|Survey||Generate survey instructions automatically from mine plans. Input survey results from the field, recorder or field book directly into the database.|
|Schedule||Optimize the mining method and sequence by providing forecasts of material movement and machine activities for long- and short-term operations.|
|Underground||Quickly produce and test short- and long-term mine designs. Visualize and manipulate a design at any stage using MineScape’s interactive 3D CAD tools. Incorporate the latest available information, i.e. recent drilling and survey data, into the design.|
