Mine Planning & Optimisation Case Studies
Environmental, social and governance considerations drive mine planning for a small scale miner in the historical goldfields of eastern Australia.
Sanshandao Gold Mine uses Maptek Vulcan to optimize modelling and mine planning at complex underground operation in Shandong province.
Scripting in Vulcan helps turn the sheer volume of mining information into usable data, and allows more time for assessment and analysis.
Maptek has tailored an automated approach to measuring mine compliance that allows engineers more time to analyse results and make timely decisions.
Implicit Modelling tools were used to create a valid geological model for short term planning at Quebrada Blanca Mine in Chile.
A new ore control system has been implemented at an open pit gold mine in Peru, combining Vulcan with other processes to streamline analysis.
Buenaventura uses Maptek Vulcan to streamline a range of modelling and mine planning applications across their operations in Peru.
Klondex Mines customised the Vulcan toolbox using Lava scripting to create a short term modelling process for narrow vein mining.
An Australian coal mine discovered the benefits of Vulcan HARP modelling for run of mine compositing and product tonnage calculations.
Mexican company Servicios Industriales Peñoles S.A. de C.V. (SIPSA), used Vulcan for optimising stope definition to help direct mine design.
