Dynamic Anisotropic Mineable Shape Optimizer (DAMSO)

GeoMine Stopemizer is a stope and minable shape optimization tool for underground mine planning. Given a block model and a set of engineering and economic parameters, Stopemizer creates an optimal stoping boundary and then mineable shapes. For thin or tabular deposits, Stopemizer is capable of creating Dynamic Anisotropic Minable Shapes (DAMS) that accurately follow the orebody strike and dip, and hence minimize dilutions. Furthermore, Stopemizer also includes a powerful Stope Design Reconciliation tool.

Stopemizer is applicable to underground mines using any of available stoping methods. If your mining method requires block caving or sub-level caving, please check out our Cavemizer module instead.

Stopemizer Key Benefits

  • Performance: Optimizations usually takes minutes to complete, affording what-if-analysis.
  • Flexible: Ability to use dynamic anisotropic paths (polylines or surfaces) to create DAMS.that minimize dilutions.
  • Advanced Analytics: Compare and reconcile stope designs with the as-built stopes.
  • User Friendly: Full 3D power with a unlimited undo/redo stack within the GeoMine workspace .
