Automatically produce optimized stope designs to maximize the value of recovered ore for a variety of underground mining methods.
Built around the Alford Mining System’s (AMS) Mineable shape optimizer, GEOVIA Stope Optimizer can be used to produce stope-shapes and stope inventories from a block model in Surpac that spatially represents the location of the mineralization.
The Stope Optimizer automatically produces optimized stope designs to maximize the values of recovered ore within the given ore-body geometry and design constraints. It is capable of generating stope designs for a variety of underground mining methods.
Users can access GEOVIA Stope Optimizer function in multiple ways in Surpac
• In the Navigator, double-click a valid *.xml file, or drag and drop a valid .xml file in Graphics.
• In the Navigator, right-click a valid *.xml file and choose Edit from the shortcut menu.
Also, you can edit a *.xml file by right-clicking a *.xml file in the navigator and choose Edit from the shortcut menu
and the stopes generated can be directly imported into GEOVIA MineSched for underground scheduling. This provides a total end to end solution for long term strategic underground scheduling.
