Without a comprehensive mine planning software package, quarries will struggle to plan or communicate the most economical method for mining the deposit. It’s difficult to build and locate infrastructure for the future and talented staff can become discouraged if they don’t have the right software for the job. Worse still, a flawed drill and blast process can result in poor fragmentation, fly-rock, and unsafe work conditions.
The Engineering Suite helps Quarry operations to keep track of resource estimation, block modeling and mine design with HxGN MinePlan Engineering Quarry Foundation and HxGN MinePlan Engineering Quarry Pro.
HxGN MinePlan Quarry Foundation is a complete mine planning software package that integrates HxGN MinePlan 3D into a standardized workflow, basing schedule optimization on economics or other constraints. The comprehensive engineering and geology workflow is specifically designed for mining (not AutoCAD) and the solution is scalable, growing as your organization does.
The software is based on almost half a century of development and successful operation in quarries and metal mines worldwide. It's a non-scripted solution that integrates with any system. It’s easy to understand, support, and troubleshoot. Users can expect improved reconciliation and improved production thanks to strategic blending, scheduling, and geologic interpretation. Forecasting is easier to reconcile with actual data, making reconciliation easier. A faster, more streamlined workflow helps to lower production costs and improve safety.
HxGN MinePlan Quarry Pro builds on Foundation's features by adding blast-hole design capabilities, material routing and improved database management.
