Panel Caving Designer

Panel Caving Designer, released in Vulcan 11 in 2018, completes the mining value chain for caving. A footprint created in Maptek’s strategic CaveLogic application can be passed to Panel Caving Designer for designing infrastructure and output integrated with activity scheduling in Vulcan Gantt Scheduler.

Panel Caving Designer allows users to efficiently plan and quickly prepare the operational sectors necessary to comply with production plans defined in the strategic planning stage. The automated process for creating 3D CAD level production and sink level mining designs incorporates geometric, technical and operational parameters.

Changes made to pillar dimensions and orientations, and drive widths and heights are automatically reflected in designs. Design scenarios can be compared, taking into account operational factors and costs.

The new module is applicable to naturally and artificially supported, as well as unsupported caving methods.
