Transparency and trust are essential to a solid mine plan, which must be clearly explained to all stakeholders. And with so many downstream implications, drill and blast is too important to get wrong. Without a comprehensive mine planning software package that includes an integrated drill and blast workflow, quarries will struggle to plan, communicate, or execute 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.
To help avoid those pitfalls, HxGN MinePlan Quarry Pro is a complete mine planning software package for quarries with additional drill and blast capabilities and improved database management.
Its user-friendly interface integrates HxGN MinePlan 3D into a standardized workflow, basing schedule optimization on economics or other constraints. The design tools are based on drill and blast best practices and the comprehensive engineering and geology workflow is specifically designed for mining (not AutoCAD). The solution is scalable, growing as your organization does.
Quarry Pro is based on almost half a century of development and successful operation in quarries and metal mines worldwide. It integrates with any system and is 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.
