QuickPit

Rapid Open Pit Mine Design Software

GeoMine QuickPit (QuickPit) is an advanced open pit design software for rapid pit design. QuickPit allows a mine planner to build a complete pit or dump design with ramps in a matter of minutes. Its parametric and incremental pushback/dump creation tools combined with unlimited undo/redo allows the mine planner to evaluate multiple designs and plans in the shortest time possible. Furthermore, QuickPit’s built-in real-time topography update means there is no longer a need to clip your design against the active topography at the end of your design cycle

QuickPit stands out from the crowd by offering a greatly simplified workflow that automates the traditional pen-and-paper pit design process using bench toe contours. Further more, it includes a unique reconciliation module for comparing and reconciling practical pit designs with the Lerchs-Grassmann pit or the as-built pit.

QuickPit Key Benefits

Create pushback increments by projecting a base contours up or down; allows the pit slope angle of each increment to vary by sectors and by levels or by rock types. Each push-back increment automatically updates the active topography.

Pushbacks are auto-clipped against the active topography and by user-defined property lines, if any.

Supports single bench, double bench and triple bench or a combination of the three bench types.

Create multiple complete or partial in-pit ramps with multiple access points. Quickly conduct cost analysis for alternative ramp configurations.

Creates dump(s) anywhere, including in mined-out areas, and calculate dump volume(s). 

Dumps are auto-clipped against the active topography and by user-defined property lines, if any.

Auto-generate pit designs by margin ranking Gridded Seam Models (for coal or seam type deposits), Features a set of Parametric Design tools for margin ranked pits.  

Parametric designs are auto-clipped against the active topography.

Note: this module requires a separate GSM Pit Designer license.

Compare and reconcile any pit design with the Lerchs-Grossman pit or the as-built pit to show the design variance.

Generate bench-by-bench reserve report; export pit designs to DXF or CSV files.
