Mine Design Software

cad/model/map/reporting

As former mine planners, we know the impact operational changes to mine plans can have on workflows and efficiencies. Being able to measure the cost-benefit of mine design options or system changes provides foresight into designs that maximize productivity throughout the mine site.

At the heart of Opencontour software is a CAD based program. The core software toolset includes:

CAD functionality

  • CAD feature drawing and editing

  • Project settings stored on web server

  • Drag and drop design files

  • Feature editing/saving, DXF/CSV input and output

Cutter/Filler

Use mine site topography to build the base contour layer. Cutter or Filler layers are then constructed (pits, dumps or heap leach pads).  These layers are combined to create a result contour layer and a result cut/fill shape layer. ​​​

  • Design cutter or filler shapes/contours with mine topography

  • Apply geotech functionality (slope design) for multiple domains

  • Ramp building efficiency

  • Design open pit phases, dump designs and heap leach pad lifts

  • Mid-bench or Toe/Crest lines

BLOCK Model

  • Import large block model CSV files with or without filtering capabilities

  • Model label viewer

  • Custom legend for color code data viewing

  • Open pit or Heap leach pad model viewing

Geotech design

  • Geology domain tools define up to five domains with unique bench face angles (BFA) and inter-ramp angles (IRA)

  • Unique wall angle settings for each domain based on wall strike direction

  • Geotech parameters also apply to dump and heap leach lift design

Scripting

  • Scripts are used to edit / add data to the mine plan at the block model level

  • Plans can be simple or complex based on the number of added properties

  • Scripts define financial analysis parameters

  • Scripts can be easily edited providing iterations on your mine plan

Final Contour mapping/3d visuals

  • Mine visualization created in 3D or 2D contour format

  • Efficient generation of period maps

  • Final topography after cutting/filling

  • Extensive set of 3D tools available for viewing geometry features in three dimensions

reporting

  • DXF export

  • CSV data export

  • Map export in scaled PDF format
