why opencontour?

Opencontour mine software is a valuation tool that helps mining companies discover the true value of their assets. Its mine planning tools help organize efficient and effective mining workflows while simultaneously providing financial responsibility and budgetary constraint limitations. Whether it's open pit bench design, equipment scheduling, cost-benefit comparisons, or tracking metal recoveries - Opencontour helps maximize mine production and minimize costs.

Software modules are designed to optimize open pit design, scheduling and planning, heap leach stacking, and heap leach recovery for each phase of mining. Each module provides detailed mine planning tools which reduce downtime and contributes to profitability. 

Opencontour is not an off-the-shelf program designed for the masses. It's designed specifically for open pit and heap leach mining, and to provide our clients with the tools needed for their unique operation.
