Once you have developed a block model, you want to quickly understand the nature of the optimal pit for your deposit. You know your mining and processing costs and while you may not use a crystal ball, you have an idea of metal prices that will be guiding your analysis. You want to find the optimal pit and understand its sensitivity to costs and metal prices.
With Minemax Planner you can quickly calculate the optimal pit associated with a resource model. With 3-D visualization as a centrepiece to Planner’s design you will not only see the economic ramifications of your optimal pit, but also practical mineability issues. You can use the phases functionality to automatically generate a series of nested shells that you can combine into mineable pushbacks or stages.
