Vulcan MineModeller Underground Bundle

Vulcan MineModeller Underground allows engineers to design, evaluate and maintain daily underground mine operations.
Users can generate different designs for each mining scenario, evaluating and comparing results.

MineModeller Underground Modules

Mine Design Underground

  • Optimised design of blocks for cut and fill, sub-level stoping, and room & pillar mining methods
  • Design tools allows for a preview of designs before applying to settings
  • Design declines with intermediate access points using the automatic ramp tool
  • Interactive ramp editor allows independent modification of ramp sections
  • Transition gradient can be specified at the start, middle or end sections of the ramp

Block Modelling

  • Store and use information via regular cells, subcells and other variables
  • Conduct inverse distance grade estimation
  • Support large number of blocks - add, delete or modify variables in real time
  • Create custom reserve reports, including grade tonnage charts

Grid Modelling

  • Variety of powerful modelling methods to build grid surfaces
  • Perform complex grid to grid operations
  • Create stratigraphic, structural and grade/quality grid models using an automated modelling process
  • Generate and analyse reserves by overlaying polygons onto grids to create reserve limits


  • Statistical analysis of Vulcan databases, grids and block models
  • Automatically output results and charts to Microsoft® Excel™

Base Modules


  • Create/edit 3D surface and solid triangulations, such as stopes and ramps
  • Generate contours
  • Register images with triangulations for better visualisation

Vulcan 3D CAD

  • Design and digitise lines, polygons, points and text
  • View, analyse, interactively edit 3D data

Data Transfer

  • Import and export data between Vulcan and other applications
  • ODBC connection to SQL Server™, Oracle® and MS Access™


  • Configure user-defined plot style sheets with title blocks and user prompts
  • Edit and regenerate plot files
  • Set up and generate single plots using a wizard-style interface
  • Generate multiple plots with batch-style interface using existing data specs
