Torque is an SQL-based database platform for managing drillhole, blasthole, and other sample data with advanced functionality for data processing and QAQC validation. Learn more.
Standardize grade control into an auditable process. Leverage MinePlan 3D to integrate workflows into a mine's daily operational processes to optimize the recovery of the mineral resource.
Grade control is integral to a mine’s downstream processes and is key to optimizing recovery of its primary resource.
MinePlan Grade Control Geo streamlines workflows using an integrated MinePlan 3D and SQL-based system. Blasthole survey, geology and grades are managed using a database and QAQC workflow.
Once blasthole data is approved, MinePlan’s Process Manager provides a rapid, standardized and auditable tool for executing the block model interpolation process through the use of highly customizable functions assembled in a workflow. Dig blocks are defined and materials are routed in the Planner tool to optimize accounting for dilution, grade and other geological factors.
After dig blocks are optimized, polygons are sent to the FMS, surveyors and other stakeholders with a click. When the shovel starts mining the routed material, the Daily Dig tool reports daily shovel progress and available muck.
The reconciliation workflow compares block models and reports what was forecast vs. what was mined. Logic and Model Calculation Tools can be used for running independent studies and audits.
The MinePlan Grade Control Geo package includes multiple components that streamline the grade control workflow using an integrated MinePlan 3D and SQL-based system. Blasthole survey, geology and grades are managed using the integrated database and QAQC workflow.
MinePlan’s Process Manager provides advanced functionality for importing, compositing, attributing, interpolating, coding, and much more, using robust workflows. Take advantage of the long list of built-in and customizable procedures to suit the needs of your mine.
Optimize dig blocks and send polygons to the fleet management system, surveyors and other stakeholders with one click using MinePlan’s Release utility tool. When the shovel starts mining the routed material, the Daily Dig tool reports shovel progress and available muck.
