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

  • Parametric and Incremental: Parametric and incremental tools with unlimited undo/redo allow multiple realistic pit designs to be created in minutes as opposed to days.
  • Real-time Update: Automatic update of the active topography on each operation means you no longer need to perform manual clipping at the end of your design cycle just to find out certain part of your design is not realistic.
  • Persistent: Ability to go back in time to reconstruct any previous pit design (a snapshot) at any given point, even after your GeoMine session is restarted.
  • Flexible: Includes a powerful Visual Formula Editor for customization, plus all common surface, solid and block model manipulation tools in the Foundation module of GeoMine.

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.
