K-MINE Geology Module | Advanced 3D Modeling & Geological Analysis 1

Cubic Block Modeling

K-MINE supports the creation of an irregular cubic block model, enabling rotation of angles along axes and sub-blocking using an octahedral tree data structure.

Users can import the model in *.csv format. Additionally, it’s feasible to generate a new model based on a previously created one, allowing changes to the minimum allowable block size or the addition of attributes.

Seam Block Modeling

K-MINE enables the automatic creation of a seam block model based on rock indices and facilitates the calculation of strata thickness by intervals of mine workings in the database.

It also offers automatic indexing of blocks within fault zones, oxidation zones, sedimentary rocks, and more.

Cubic Seam Block Modeling

K-MINE enables the automatic creation of models for workings and the calculation of the volume percentage of thin seams (less than the block height). This model is distinct from the seam block model due to its fixed block size along the z-axis.

This Block Model (BM) can be utilized with algorithms to optimize the final contours of open pits and for planning mining operations.

Implicit Modeling

K-MINE offers both implicit and explicit simulation. Implicit modeling involves creating of triangulation surfaces using radial basis functions method.

K-MINE enables automatic creation of surfaces and solids directly from a database containing rock codes or grade limits in samples, and also from sets of linear or point objects in space.

Additionally, it allows the use of secondary data sources, including geophysics, spectral drill samples, and mine face scans.

Application of Geological Workings Database​

K-MINE features various types of table-form datasets in a relational database.

It includes a built-in system of formulas and triggers for performing calculations and applying complex data filtering conditions.

Statistical Data Processing & Correlation Analysis​

In K-MINE, you can create distribution histograms and calculate key statistical parameters, including mode, median, coefficient of variation, and more.
Correlation analysis and report exporting to *.bmp format file are also available.

Geostatistics and Kriging​

You can construct both experimental and theoretical variograms, including variograms along the axis of drillholes, omnidirectional variograms, and determining ellipsoid anisotropy coefficients.

Additionally, the software offers interpolation features, including the Kriging method (Simple, Ordinary, Lognormal) and data cross-validation.

Cartographic Data​

Supports uploading images in *.bmp , *.jpg, *.jpeg, *.png, *.dds, *.tga, *.hdr, *.tif, *.tiff, *.wdp, *.hdp, * formats .jxr, *.ppm, *.pfm.

Features the ability to bind a raster image in 3D and includes a built-in image calibration mechanism.

Google Maps and Google Earth Tools in K-MINE​

You can export data from K-MINE to Google Earth and import data from Google Maps into K-MINE.

K-MINE features a built-in geodetic calculator for converting coordinate systems, and a mechanism to visualize objects created in K-MINE on Google Earth-Pro. Additionally, uploading images from Google Maps to the K-MINE environment is possible.

Mineral Resources and Reserves​ Reports (CRIRSCO Template)​

K-MINE provides both tabular and graphical reports for block model validation.

You can plot the Grade-Tonnage Curve graph based on the specified parameter step for the minimum content of the useful component in the block (cut-off grade).

The program also includes an algorithm for comparative analysis of contents in composite samples and in model blocks along the X, Y, or Z axes (Drift Analysis).

Geological Reporting and Documentation
Ready to Print​

K-MINE enables you to format and print reports and graphic documentation, as well as customize and save individual templates for the characteristics of the deposit or the enterprise as a whole.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What kind of licenses does K-MINE provide and how much do they cost?

    K-MINE offers two types of licenses: monthly or annual subscriptions and perpetual licenses. Please contact the K-MINE team to learn about the pricing for each module.

    Can K-MINE help me create accurate 3D geological models and resource estimates for my mining project?

    Yes, the K-MINE Geology Module is a powerful tool for creating 3D geological models and resource estimates. However, if you require additional assistance or expertise, our Resource Modeling and Estimation service is here to help. Our experts can create detailed 3D geological, structural, and mineralization models, manage exploration databases, and provide resource estimation, classification, and reporting for all stages of projects, including JORC and NI 43-101 standards. By combining the capabilities of the Geology Module with our professional services, you can ensure the highest level of accuracy and reliability for your mining project.

    How can information be transferred from one module to another?

    K-MINE is a standalone application with a single database, so no data transfer is necessary. Different teams can access data according to their user rights.

    Is K-MINE cloud-based software?

    No, K-MINE is a desktop application. However, upon request, our team can install it on a Windows server and set up a cloud infrastructure.
