Main benefits

Save your engineers time!

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

Increase equipment utilization

3D visualization, room and pillar, and Engineering UG CAD tools help to minimize dilution, improve resource recovery and maximize equipment use.

Maintain consistent production

An activity scheduler that understands sequence and precedences for UG activities means reduced plant idle times and fewer low production periods.

Avoid risks of increased dilution, sub-optimal scenarios

Stope optimization can be challenging without a software package that includes an industry-standard algorithm. A package that allows you to create mine designs and activity-based schedules is also vital.

Not only is it time-consuming to manually build a mine design, there’s no ability to quickly model all preceding activities that lead to production, or to evaluate strategic optimization scenarios. No algorithm means ambiguity when determining stope economic limits, and no insight into equipment resources.

MinePlan UG Strategic Planning combines the industry-standard engine for producing optimized stopes with the MinePlan 3D CAD tool. 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 can be created using MinePlan 3D CAD tools.

The package provides the necessary 3D visualization, room and pillar, and engineering UG CAD tools to help minimize dilution, improve resource recovery, maximize equipment utilization and maintain consistent production levels.

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.

Integrates with HxGN MineOperate OP Pro for FMS

Communicate activity-based schedules to operations directly, via integration with the HxGN MineOperate UG Pro fleet management system. Tasks can be assigned and completed in the field with results being pulled back into MinePlan to update schedules on the fly.
