Inserting Reports and Scheduling Mine Planning Tasks | Tip Of The Month

Given the large amount of information needed to process at a mine, mine planning tasks can become overwhelming and can too complex through time. With Promine you can easily create developments that include costs for materials and resources, while also estimating dates and advance rates with precision. 

Its easy-to-use interface and tools ensure that you will only be investing time in the activities that matter the most and will be relevant for future planning. Just as any other module inside Promine, it can easily be configured to each users requirements. 

Creating Drifts for Cut and Fill Mining Method

Creating Drifts for Cut and Fill Mining Method

The back and fill mining method is one of the most selective underground mining methods. It is highly selective and profitable, especially implemented when it comes to vertical veins that change constantly in direction. With Promine you will quickly create 3D models with the information that was surveyed and easily calculate volume, tonnage, overbreak’s, create sections, calculate the amount of ore mined and more. 

Predicting Underground Mining Dilution with AI | Tip of the Month

Predicting Underground Mining Dilution with AI | Tip of the Month

“SmartDIL is a new tool that uses artificial intelligence to analyze large amounts of data, make multiple predictions and give the best solution to predict and control dilution in underground mining. This will help mines lower their costs and become more profitable with this easy-to-use artificial intelligence dilution tool. SmartDIL takes on one of the biggest problems faced in the mining industry and will adapt to each underground mines situation. “

Mining software & drift modeling

Mining software & drift modeling

In the mining industry,planning is a key factor for success. In today’s age it is absolutely fundamentalfor mine sites to operate and plan their future developments with software.
From the very beginning of the
exploration to the closure of a mine.

Mine sites that implement specialized software’s for their planning are able to store large amounts of data and have them at their disposals for manipulating in a matter of seconds.
There are many types of
activities that can be done, for example on the geological side you can import your data from diamond drill holes, interpret the information, create block models and estimate resources, as well as perform geostatistical models.

On the mine planningside, once you have your orebody and resources defined, you can choose your mining method and begin another critical phase of planning. For undergroundmining, drift modeling is an important aspect for the development of the mine. A complete set of tools will ensure the planning process goescorrectly to a fixed budget and time period. Also, depending on the mining method chosen (cut and fill, room and pillar, and so on), drift modeling will also be an important aspect to the drill and blast activities.

The main features that must contain a mining software for modeling drifts is to be able to plan out developments with information regarding to the geometry (distance, shape,slope,size direction, position, etc.) of the drifts, advance rates,overbreak reports,include material price to calculate cost per meter, create face maps, insert faults or other geomechanical information and to add attributes to the drawings, so when they are printed, they can be easily interpretated.

Other options like creating fast and easy sections of drifts can come in handy when planning, to help get a different perspective on the developments and to include them in mine plans. Since the industry is always evolving, new tools and opportunities keep coming up forminesoftware development. We hope to see new features and creative ideas to improvedrift modelingin the near future.

Creating a detailed longitudinal section for a Drift | Promine Tip of the Month

Creating a detailed longitudinal section for a Drift | Promine Tip of the Month

Inside the Drift design module, we have many commands to create drifts, annotate them, create schedules, add ramps and many more tools. We also have a complete set of commands for creating longitudinal sections across drifts, ramps, cross sections or any other type of development that has a centerline. We have the option to create this section automatically or configure it manually and to add stations, points and project surrounding developments. This helps us get a better understanding of our developments with using a few commands and displaying the information with a few clicks.
