Software Products



Opencontour mining software streamlines mine operations and assists site managers with the decision making process for mine design, workflow schedules and heap leach facility production. Opencontour helps interpret and compare the cost-benefits of mine plan options and compare them to alternatives. This helps mine planners make informed decisions that benefit workflows throughout the entire mine site. The Opencontour platform consists of four modules - each of which has a centralized focus - yet support plans from the pit to the heap leach pad. Modules are designed for open pit design, mine schedulingheap leach pad stacking and heap leach pad recovery.
