K-MINE Module

Grain Size

  • for mining engineers and experts in D&B design and analysis.
  • for other professionals responsible for D&B quality analysis.

Quality Analysis

With the K-MINE Grain Size module, you can analyze the quality of drilling and blasting (D&B) operations. Use this module for the calculation of mined rock volumes and grain size distribution.

Based on the estimated amounts for each type of mined rock, you can easily reach a conclusion on the blasting quality and introduce improvements, if necessary.

Photo Processing

The new K-MINE Grain Size module is designed to process photos made by an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).

This can be useful for the analysis of grain size distribution not only in open pits, but also in warehouses and temporary storages for mined rock, as well as in any hard-to-get-to places.

Data Storage System

The array of rock fragmentation analysis data from D&B operations can represent a structured data storage system.

You can always go back to the data when you need to and look at the blasting quality under specific conditions to make a decision.

Automatic and Manual
Rock Recognition

The K-MINE Grain Size module offers both automatic and manual rock recognition.

By configuring the filters, you can automatically recognize rock edges in different light.

If you want, you can always correct the automatic recognition results manually.

Size Distribution Analysis

Where applicable, the K-MINE Grain Size module can perform a size distribution analysis of mined rock in dump truck bodies and excavator buckets or on a conveyor belt.

This type of analysis is performed on a statistical basis.

Size Distribution Reports

Following the grain size distribution analysis of rocks in the K-MINE environment, a size distribution report is issued. The data in the report is presented in tabular and graphical formats.

The collection and analysis of such data will contribute to consistent improvements in D&B operations in an open pit.
