Vulcan introduced in Vietnam

Friday, September 13th, 2013

Maptek has introduced Vulcan to the geology team at Ban Phuc Nickel mine, 180 kilometres west of Hanoi in Son La province, Vietnam.


An underground mine using modern mechanised equipment will feed a process plant incorporating conventional sulphide flotation technology for the production of a Ni-Cu rich concentrate.

The mine geologists are using Vulcan for recording underground channel samples, registering drive mapping and associated photos for accurately digitising geology, constructing 3D orebody and fault models, drillhole database management, block modelling and resource estimation.
