Case Studies

Paradigm shift in mine scheduling

Maptek has worked with mine planners to establish a new approach to scheduling that helps meet productivity goals.

Scheduling solution uncovers value

Maptek Evolution scheduling solution has uncovered more than $10 million in extra value for a Barrick Gold Corporation project in western Africa.

Rewarding enterprise

A high grade gold deposit in Western Australia is relying on Maptek Evolution cloud-based technology to solve scheduling challenges.

Calculate haulage while scheduling

Evolution calculates haulage data on the fly when running schedules, helping to rationalise costs early in the mining project.

Integrated haulage strategy cuts costs

Maptek strategic mine scheduling optimisation tools aid mine planning and waste dump haulage at open pit operations.

Optimised scheduling solution

Dynamic optimised schedules take account of the complexity of mining a new project at Diavik Diamond Mine in the remote Northwest Territories of Canada.

Benefit Studies

Tightening control over scheduling

A high grade gold deposit in Western Australia is relying on Maptek Evolution cloud-based technology to solve scheduling challenges.

Reserving the Maptek way

Evolution challenges the paradigm that reserving is onerous and requires high levels of programming expertise to generate reliable results.

White Paper

Applying Modern Heuristics to Maximising NPV through Cut-off Grade Optimisation

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.
