- for other professionals responsible for tactical planning of mining operations.
Automatic Search for the Optimum Sequence of Mined Rock Extraction
K-MINE enables the automatic search for the optimum sequence of mined rock extraction from an open pit or surface mine.
With this module, you can easily produce a mining schedule for any time period or even set up a mine development scenario with fixed extraction sequences and predict the mining progress for any time horizon.
Scheduling Areas Identifying
- By using polygons (manual drawing)
- By using an existing field in the block model of a deposit
- By limiting blocks of a block model by standard functionality.
Status of Mining Operations Monitoring
When setting up a scenario to predict the mining progress you will get detailed information, at a particular stage of plan development, on:
- Face position
- Status of mining operations
- Total mined rock volume that was or will be extracted before the completion.
This way, you can monitor the status of the mining operations on a daily basis.
Wireframes and Polylines
The deliverables of the K-MINE Scheduling module include mining surfaces/wireframes and polylines for the scheduling period. You can download polylines from the design to sublayers by periods, areas, or levels.
All these elements are part of the software environment and can therefore be easily used for further operations.
The scheduling process is automatic, but you can customize the schedules as you like. Target parameters, area settings, and outputs per area are used to find the best solution.
To get a better picture, you can visualize the completed scheduling periods in the K-MINE operating environment.
For mining schedule analysis and reporting purposes, the K-MINE Scheduling module visualizes the output data as customizable graphs.
Moreover, you can download the output table data in a variety of formats, including Excel, and analyze it, where necessary.
Frequently asked questions
What kind of licenses does K-MINE provide and how much are they?
K-MINE provides two types of licenses monthly or annual subscriptions and perpetual licenses. Please contact the K-MINE team to learn each module’s price.
How can the information be transferred from one module to another?
K-MINE is one stand-alone application with a single database, so no data transfer is necessary. Different teams can have access to data according to their user rights.
Is K-MINE a cloud-based software?
No, K-MINE is a desktop application, however, upon request, our team can install access on the Windows server where we can set up a cloud infrastructure.
