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 minutes. Its parametric and incremental pushback/dump creation tools, combined with unlimited undo/redo, allow 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 the fear that your final pit design may not be practical (which can only be found when you clip the design against the active topography at the end of your design cycle)

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

QuickPit Key Benefits

Creates pushback increments by projecting a base contour 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, double, and triple benches or a combination of the three bench types.

Creates multiple complete or partial in-pit ramps with multiple access points. Quickly conducts a cost analysis for alternative ramp configurations.

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

Compares and reconciles any pit design with the Lerchs-Grossmann pit or the as-built pit to show the design variance.

Generates bench-by-bench reserve report; Exports pit designs to DXF or CSV files.
