TUCSON, ARIZONA, JULY 12, 2016 – Hexagon Mining today releases Atlas 3.3, complete with Live Haulage, a major software enhancement that allows easy design, set-up, and management of a haulage network.

Part of Hexagon Mining‘s MineSight Planning Suite, Atlas is a comprehensive solution for tactical scheduling and stockpile management, integrating multiple departments, such as drill and blast.

Version 3.3 now incorporates all haulage tools. Using Live Haulage, you can easily design, set up, manage, and modify a haulage network directly from Atlas, eliminating the need to design the network in a separate component or package.

It’s the first time that scheduling and haul network design functionality are unified in a single product, without the need for import/export. Live Haulage allows you to edit the haul network, add/delete/move/modify road segments, add inter-phase ramps, and add/delete/move locations (waste dumps, mill, stockpiles, etc.).

Designed and modified haul networks can be dynamically visualized through the 3D viewer to allow instant visual validation. By facilitating full access to haul networks directly from Atlas, Live Haulage adds reality to tactical scheduling and eliminates the need to post-process schedules.

Mining engineers‘ work is simplified by using one product to generate accurate schedules. Planners will save time importing, exporting, and post-processing data, and spend more time analyzing and generating complete and practical schedules.

Atlas 3.3 also includes optimization improvements (direct mill feed optimization in material blending, infeasibility analysis, blending by material types) and the option to import activity reserves from sources other than MineSight block models. This will allow more flexibility in defining reserves.
