Drillhole Planning with Dan Part 4 – Underground production diamond drill design
See how to create a production-focused underground diamond drill plan using the Create Drillholes tool in Vulcan. Part 5
Drillhole Planning with Dan Part 3 – Life-of-mine conceptual drill design
Learn how to use the new Create Drillholes tool in Vulcan to generate a life-of-mine conceptual drill design. Part 4
Drillhole Planning with Dan Part 2 – Drill Rig Setup Specification
Drill Rig Setup Specification lets you create a specification file that can be used in the Create Drillholes or Edit Drillholes tools to quickly and easily adjust the collar positions to align with underground drill rig setup constraints provided by drilling contractors. Part 3
Drillhole Planning with Dan Part 1 – Deviation Calculation Manager
Drillholes are rarely straight – torque and rotation of drill bits, and the rock material itself, can cause them to deviate. Vulcan lets you analyse your existing drillholes and calculate the average deviation rates to inform your drillhole planning. Part 2
Introducing: CAD feature coding
The new Feature option in the CAD digitisation tools allows for greater customisation and project organisation. Combine object properties such as colour, line thickness and stipple pattern, along with user-specified attributes, into a named feature that can then be applied to objects in one operation.
Introducing: Discontinuity attributes
PointStudio 2020 streamlines your workflow by allowing new discontinuities created with the query, smart query or extract discontinuities tools to automatically have specified default attribute values. Discontinuity attributes can also be applied or amended for any discontinuity or discontinuity set with existing project data.
Introducing: Enhanced interoperability for downhole data
BlastLogic 2020 introduces support for downhole drilling information, specifically measurement while drilling data. See how advanced interoperability between BlastLogic and Eureka allows you to update charge plans based on the latest geological information.
Introducing: Tablet-based inventory management
BlastLogic 2020 enables inventory management through the tablet device, allowing the easy check-in and check-out of explosive consumables and bulk explosives to specific blasts in the field, facilitating data-driven decision making, and providing a full audit trail of inventory movements.
