Standardise and integrate the grade control process by ensuring tasks are completed sequentially.
Hexagon’s mine planning software allows you to integrate workflows into a mine's daily operational processes to optimise the recovery of the mineral resource. Standardising the entire grade control process ensures that tasks are completed sequentially with no missed steps.
Grade control is key to a mine’s downstream processes and integral to optimising recovery of its primary resource. Determining where each material should be routed depends on having all the information in front of you.
Hexagon software answers this need by consolidating and streamlining processes to manage blasthole survey, geology and grades using a database and quality assurance/quality control (QAQC) workflow.
Once blasthole data is approved, a rapid, standardised and auditable tool executes the block model interpolation process using highly customisable functions assembled in a workflow. Dig blocks are defined and materials routed to optimise accounting for dilution, grade and other geological factors.
After dig blocks are optimised, a click of a button sends polygons to fleet supervisors, surveyors and other stakeholders. When the shovel starts mining the routed material, Hexagon software reports daily shovel progress and available muck.
We’re climbing the automation curve
Our transition to Intelligent automation is accelerating. Ultimately, our innovations will give rise to new technologies and applications - many of which we’ve yet to imagine. Today, every Hexagon solution is mapped and tagged according to its level of automation, so customers can clearly track our progress towards the freedom of autonomy.
Human performs all tasks, no data being used
Human is in charge of performing tasks but certain functions are automated to simplify control
Some tasks are automated so that operation can be autonomous for short periods (or within specific circumstances)
Autonomous operation is possible within certain bounds, but human intervention may be necessary at short notice
Designed to complete required tasks autonomously, but may require human intervention if circumstances change beyond specific bounds
Control tasks automated under all conditions, but human may request to take over; can complete all expected tasks without human intervention
