Gridded Seam Modelling, Optimization, Design and Scheduling

GeoMine GSM  is a suite of GeoMine modules for Gridded Seam Modelling, Optimization, Design and Scheduling. GSM module is specifically tailored for stratified deposits such as coal seams, thin phosphate or limestone deposits whose horizontal extent is considerably larger than the vertical extent, which imposes challenges to conventional 3D block modelling.

GSM Key Benefits

  • Accurate: Tools are tailored for modelling, evaluating and designing stratified deposits.
  • Easy-to-use: Parametric Designer allows either incremental or parametric generation of pits or dumps with ramps.
  • Fast: Build entire models and pit designs in minutes

Easily import and visualize 3D drillholes with geometric and histogram plots.

Creates Gridded Seam Models (GSMs) directly from drill holes, with support for faults and other geometric constraints.

Ability to repair and validate seams, and enforce correct seam sequences.

Options for both 3D compositing and compositing by seams.

Ability to create continuous and/or categorical attributes and assign them to GSMs.

Provides both 2D and 3D inverse distance interpolation methods.

The built-in Pit Optimizer determines the optimum pit limit and allows the user to incorporate any constraints using GeoMine’s unique Visual Formula Editor.

Creates surface roads on any existing mine topography.

Generates resource reports for GSMs and reserves reports for designed pits.

Creates mining activities and resources, and schedule them using the built-in Gantt Chart with an automatic resource levelling algorithm.
