Main benefits

Activity-based schedules

MinePlan Activity Scheduler is sufficiently flexible and configurable to model the mining unit operations for any underground mine.

Save your engineers time!

Apply the industry-standard algorithm for stope optimization, which allows for variation of economic and geometric parameters.

Consider stockpile, blending

Stockpiling and blending considerations are automatically accounted for using the built in CPLEX optimization engine.

Spend more time being an underground engineer

MinePlan UG Long Term Planning combines the industry-standard engine for producing optimized stopes with its foundational MinePlan 3D CAD tool and its activity-based scheduling tool, MinePlan Activity Scheduler.

MinePlan Stope Optimizer allows you to evaluate strategic mining scenarios by generating economic stope limits based on economics and constraints input by the user. Detailed designs for these stopes can be created using MinePlan 3D CAD tools.

These designs then feed MinePlan Activity Scheduler, with which you can produce an activity-based schedule. It is flexible and configurable enough to model the mining unit operations for any underground mine.

Mining activities are created based on cut geometries and equipment is assigned to model the mining processes that are required to move material from the mine to the mill. Stockpiling and blending considerations are simple using the built in CPLEX optimization engine. Report to stakeholders using the integrated Advanced Reporting and Charting (ARC) technology.

Includes MinePlan Stope Optimizer

The industry-standard algorithm for stope optimization allows for variation of economic and geometric parameters. It includes underground CAD design tools and an activity scheduler that understands sequence and precedences for underground activities.

Integrates with MinePlan 3D CAD tools

Not only can engineers evaluate and optimize stope designs, they can use MinePlan 3D CAD tools to create mine designs and activity-based schedules that account for sequence and precedences for underground activities.

CPLEX optimization engine for stockpile and blending

The built in CPLEX optimization engine ensures that stockpiling and blending considerations are accounted for. And reporting is straightforward using the built in Advanced Reporting and Charting (ARC) technology.

Introducing HxGN MinePlan Stope Optimizer

Using constraints and design parameters, Stope Optimizer provides the optimal stope shape design to maximize the value of an orebody. The outputs are suitable for use in strategic and tactical planning.

Tactical short-term planning the Hexagon way

Applied tactically, Hexagon’s short-term planning software can reap rich operational rewards, explains Technical Services’ specialist, Javier Castaneda in a video interview.
