Mine design and planning
We are experts in planning and designing surface mines, mining methods, material handling systems and mining infrastructure.
From the deepest open pit to the largest surface mines in the world, we are significantly involved in optimizing capital investment, reducing operating costs and creating value. Mine development plans are prepared, which include bench layouts, alternative mine access and primary material handling systems. Alternative mine planning strategies are developed, based on criteria established with the client and the specific features of the material deposit.
Planning and Design with GEOVIA / SURPAC (Dassault Systems)
GEOVIA Surpac™ is the world’s most popular geology and mine planning software, supporting open pit and underground operations and exploration projects in more than 120 countries.
