Minemax is pleased to announce the release of Minemax Planner 4.3.4 that now integrates both Pit Optimization and Pushback Generation functionality in the affordable Minemax Planner Standard Edition. The Pushback Generation capability, that uses minimum mining width for creating practical pushbacks, was previously exclusive to the Professional Edition users.
Adding Pushback Generation to the Standard Edition makes this strategic mine planning tool a cost-effective solution for developing optimal strategies through Pit Optimization, Nested Pit Shell Generation and Pushback Generation. The easy-to-use interface with guided workflows allows mine planners to keep the setup and optimization fast and efficient without the need for additional end user training.
Minemax CEO Jim Butler adds: “Industry feedback tells us that Pit Optimization and Pushback Generation often go hand in hand in current mine planning practices. This is why we decided to include Pushback Generation into our more affordable edition of Minemax Planner. We believe this will help mine planners keep their strategic mine planning process smooth and efficient at an affordable price.“
In addition, Minemax Planner 4.3.4. now includes an option to automatically calculate the minimum required number of benches to look up when calculating slope precedences. This helps mine planners develop pits shells with accurately configured slopes in less time and with less effort required.
The new version is now available for all maintained or subscribed Minemax Planner users through Minemax Software Manager (MSM).
