Parametric Cave Optimization and Design

GeoMine Cavemizer (Cavemizer) is a powerful cave optimization and design tool for block caving or sub-level caving operations. Cavemizer includes an automatic footprint finder and a parametric cave designer. Given a grade model and a set of economic parameters, Cavemizer automatically determines the best footprint and interactively generates the corresponding cave design that models user-defined caving stages, each with its own recovery and external dilution.

Cavemizer Key Features

  • Determines the best footprint with Cavemizer’s Automatic Footprint Finder.
  • Creates and iterates your design with Cavemizer’s Parametric Cave Designer.
  • Defines your own caving stages, each with its own recovery and external dilutions.
  • Automatically generates cross-cuts from a cave design.
  • Reports mineable reserves for each caving stage.
  • Includes all uCAD tools with unlimited undo/redo history
