Ore and Stockpile Blender
GeoMine Blender (Blender) is a direct stockpile blender. Blender allows ore and marginal materials from multiple stockpiles to be blended to meet the specific specification of one or more processing plants. Underpinning Blender is a goal programming optimization engine which allows the user to set multiple objectives with a set of constraints. Blender provides the best satisfying blending plan to meet the specified set of goals. When no such plan is feasible, Blender will automatically introduce soft-constraints to find a feasible plan and indicate how far the plan deviates from the given objectives.
