Since 2008, Minemax has become one of the key strategic and long-range mine planning software tools used both in the new projects and operating mines. Implementation and use of Minemax software as a mine production scheduler enables mining engineers to:
With the right resources and skill sets, Minemax can be integrated seamlessly with the general mine planning packages, and it is extremely easy to use when the scheduling requirements and models are correctly developed. Minemax have provided excellent support in building scheduling models and have never ignored the user enhancement requests.
When I think of the thousands of hours of plan iterations we and those before us have done at YA over the years, I can’t help but feel staggered by what Minemax can produce quickly if the model is well set-up!

Minemax has provided us with excellent initial and ongoing support insuring practical and long term use of their software. Once set up with very little work many iterations could be run to explore the best business case and identify manageable bottlenecks.

In the Barro Alto Project in Brazil, we have a big open pit mine and a complex metallurgical restriction for two plants. In this highly constrained scenario we were surprised with how fast Minemax’s Scheduling software came up with a result. We saw that Minemax’s scheduling results satisfied all our scheduling constraints.

Terramin has used iGantt to optimize production from a small and complex orebody and exceeded expectations in performance and cost. It demonstrates the cost and performance benefits capable from effective planning and implementation using quality tools in competent hands. Minemax have supported their software with expert consulting capabilities which have greatly assisted the ramp up of our Tala Hamza project.

The company previously used another planner, however we changed to iGantt in the process of standardising our mining software, and it integrates well with our mine design package. The visualisation side of iGantt was also seen as a fantastic tool for communicating schedule information at a high level. Also had significant amount of experience with iGantt within the company compared to the other packages.
