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 Benefits

  • Great time saver: automatic footprint finding and cross cuts generation allow the mine planner to quickly conduct what-if scenario analysis.
  • Adaptable: ability to define your own caving stages offers great flexibility
  • Reliable: accurate reserve calculation reinforces user's confidence.
