In the current era of technological advancement and environmental protection, the need to redefine the way of extracting minerals from the Earth is constantly evolving. In a mining operation, many changes constantly happen that affect the status of the mine. These complex adjustments of the mine need to be modeled to get a clear image of the production status of the mine and to improve decision making.
Some factors that affect an underground mining operation include:
Learn and use CAD tools quickly and easily. CAD modeling is by far one of the easiest ways to learn and use when it comes to 3D modeling. It works with meshes and solids to accurately represent the type of object you are modeling.
With CAD, easily visualize developments in multiple types of views, whether its in wireframe mode or a realistic view. Multiple views always to quickly assess the quality of the design while ensuring the integrity of the modeling.
Design drifts and ramps in 2D and 3D and insert annotations for the elevations and grades quickly communicate details about the development. Unfold the section to get a det detailed analysis of the inserted station blocks and elevations, allowing for a comprehensive view of the design. This process ensures an informed and efficient development approach with all necessary information.
By leveraging CAD tools, engineers and geologists can create highly accurate and detailed representations of stopes in three-dimensional space. This enables them to visualize and analyze various design scenarios, tonnages, grades, and optimizing factors such as stope dimensions, access points, and support structures.
Visualizing underground developments in 3D provides insights on design quality, tonnage, and costs for better decision-making. In this Promine course, we will learn how to model an underground mine in CAD.
Mine planning and 3D modeling are the basis of any important decision-making in a mining operation. Detailed scheduling and a good visualization of the overall mine design helps engineers put a plan of action to successfully extract minerals from the Earth while being cost-effective in an environmentally friendly way.
