New tools and enhancements coming in Vulcan 10 provide users with more control over their technical data. Highlights of the release include a new variogram analysis tool, RBF and uncertainty modelling, and large block model display.
In this presentation Maptek Sales Manager Steve Sullivan outlines the benefits of using simulation to quantify uncertainty in ultimate pit limits and guide infrastructure placement. The method described makes the best use of all project exploration data.
Vulcan 10 is set to be released in March 2016. A new open pit menu item will streamline creation of valid scheduling blocks. The simple workflow presents visual cues at all stages for validation and processes data in half the time!
Exploiting measurement while drilling (MWD) data captured by drill rig automation systems leads to better modelling. Pressure and torque readings recorded as holes are drilled can be visualised, analysed to give a clearer account of the resource.
ROM capability in Vulcan 9.1 takes a HARP model containing all of the geological structures, horizons and associated qualities as input and allows you to easily create ‘mining ready’ HARP models. These tools are included with any Vulcan geological modelling configuration.
Technology systems will need to be more interconnected and dynamic than ever before to deliver the agility and flexibility demanded by modern mining. Successful miners of the next 10 years will be those who fully exploit the vast amount of technical data that these systems deliver.
Vulcan Pit Optimiser is ideal for assessing the economic value for a coal project and providing a solid basis for detailed design and scheduling work. In this case study accurate mining plans were delivered quickly and on budget.
Fast, simple design conformance reporting tightens the feedback loop around the excavation process. Everyone can access accurate, up-to-date conformance reports in near real time. This leads to better decision making, more effective use of resources and improved productivity.
This paper presented at SME 2015 outlines a workflow for analysing geological, geotechnical and economic uncertainty as it affects the ultimate pit. The outcome is a better understanding of the risks associated with mining projects.
Vulcan Haulage Profile is a powerful mining planning tool. Learn the latest features and improve your skills with this video tutorial covering the Model Route Calculation function.
This paper presented at Orebody Modelling & Mine Planning in 2014 discusses the advantages of various optimisation techniques. It concludes that evolutionary algorithms are agile and easily adaptable, making them suitable for solving complex real world mining problems.
Stratigraphic modelling expert Peter Odins takes a look at the new coal plot batching tool in Vulcan, explains how to use implicit modelling tools for modelling intrusions and strata-form deposits and how to correlate geophysical data in Eureka.
Vulcan Technical Services staff nominate their top features in Vulcan 9.1. Handy hints and tips on getting the most from your mining software from our expert Vulcan users.
Mining is an inherently dangerous and risky business. Maptek Sentry is a laser based system for identifying failures before they occur, avoiding risk and improving safety in all types of operations.
