Hexagon Mining applies HxGN Logic to mine planning workflow

Product will help users navigate the steps of building a block model

TUCSON, ARIZONA, September 26, 2017 – Hexagon Mining today introduces to its MineSight mine planning suite, HxGN Logic, a product designed to help users easily create process workflows for modeling.

“The block model is the foundation of all planning tools, and to build a sound block model requires several steps and checking along the way,” said Leo Fernandes, Director, Product Management. “Logic assists you through this process, and builds an easy-to-understand set of steps.”

Logic includes security roles, an audit trail, and flexible data sources, assisting users in managing the process from drillholes to a model. It builds upon the foundation of proven MineSight Basis routines, moving them into an easy-to-follow workflow-building tool. It also integrates with MineSight’s other geology solutions, allowing users to launch products such as the Model Calculation Tool, or MineSight Reserve from directly inside the tool.

Other features include:

  • Modern interface
  • Security and user roles
  • Support for multiple languages
  • Flexible data connections


Today’s introduction of Logic is part of an upgraded MineSight release that also includes an improved MineSight 3D (MS3D). MS3D Version 12.50 is an exciting update for the planning flagship product, and including the following features:

  • Support for extremely large images on surfaces and new file type support
  • Persist and remove surface “color by” options (i.e. strike/dip)
  • Point cloud enhancements
    • Adds ability to query points in a point cloud
    • New properties dialog
    • Adds the ability to snap, volume clip, query, and show 2D views
  • Adds the ability to view an AutoCAD drawing directly from within MS3D
