Vulcan Explorer

Vulcan Explorer provides an interactive 3D visualisation and modelling environment to test and validate exploration models. Block models and 3D triangulated surfaces created with Vulcan Modeller, GeoModeller or MineModeller can be viewed and assessed.

Vulcan Geomodeller

Vulcan GeoModeller is ideal for creating geological, structural and grade/quality models for stratigraphic and non-stratigraphic applications. It can also be used for geological modelling, face mapping, statistical analysis and preliminary resource calculations.

Vulcan Geostatmodeller

Vulcan GeoStatModeller is a complete configuration for performing geostatistical analysis to create models and accurately determine geological resources. Tools for variograms and grade estimation augment grid and block modelling, geology and plotting.

Vulcan Geology Modules and Add-Ons

  • Vulcan Implicit Modeller
    A streamlined method for interpreting a deposit by generating automatic models of complex geological domains from drillhole information.
  • Geology tools (pdf)
    Management and validation of drillhole, lithological, and analytical data using vulcan database or through interfacing to third party databases.
  • Block modelling
    Accurate creation, visualisation and manipulation of complex block models.
  • Base geostatistics
    General tools for the application of geostatistical techniques.
  • Gaussian simulation & co-kriging
    All the geostatistical tools widely used in risk analysis, uncertainty assessment and bivariate simultaneous grade estimation.
  • Channel sampling (pdf)
    A special combination of options to streamline the creation and manipulation of underground channel samples.
  • Vulcan Data Analyser
    Advanced, intuitive tools for understanding geological and analytical data using a streamlined variogram analysis workflow.
  • Underground Digital Mapping
    Customisable digital mapping workflow that delivers accurate, geological data for mine planning
  • Geotechnical toolbox (pdf)
    Set up and use a structural database to display and calculate geotechnical information.
  • Monitoring
    View, calculate, manipulate and plot data obtained from monitors on a periodic basis.
  • Grade control
    Perform material type/destination classification in open pit blasts and underground.
  • Oil Sands (pdf)
    The Vulcan Oil Sands Module is tailored to meet oil sands requirements in geologic modeling, reserving, and mine design.
  • Vulcan CAD (pdf)
    Vulcan CAD provides full design and editing, data import/export, data query and plotting functionality.
  • Vulcan Enviewer (pdf)
    Vulcan Enviewer allows users to view, interrogate and present Vulcan information while maintaining the integrity of project data.
  • Kriging Neighbourhood Analysis
    Determine and optimise input parameters for the kriging process to minimise conditional biases during estimation.
  • Uniform Conditioning
    Validate recoverable reserves, mitigating the risk of overestimating or underestimating grade and tonnage.
