Stope optimization can be challenging without a software package that includes an industry-standard algorithm. A package that allows you to create mine designs and activity-based schedules is also necessary for successful mines. Not only is it time-consuming to manually build a mine design, there’s no ability to quickly model all preceding activities that lead to production, or to evaluate strategic optimization scenarios. No algorithm means ambiguity when determining stope economic limits, and no insight into equipment resources.
HxGN MinePlan Engineering UG Pro saves engineers’ time and helps mines avoid the risk of increased dilution and settling for sub-optimal scenarios. MinePlan Engineering UG Pro is a software package that enables engineers to evaluate and optimize stope designs; and create mine designs and activity-based schedules.
Integrated with a general mine planning package, MinePlan Engineering UG Pro features the industry-standard algorithm for stope optimization and allows for variation of economic and geometric parameters. It includes underground CAD design tools and an activity scheduler that understands sequence and precedences for underground activities.
MinePlan Engineering UG Pro provides the necessary 3D visualization, room and pillar, and Engineering UG CAD tools to help you minimize dilution, improve resource recovery, maximize efficiency for equipment utilization and to maintain consistent production levels.
Users can expect increased equipment utilization, reduced plant idle times, and fewer low production periods. Engineers' precious time is saved and mine designs can be built quicker with MinePlan Engineering UG Pro.
