METSIM® The Premier Steady-State & Dynamic Process Simulator
The Mine Module allows import of drill-hole data, the mine block model and the mining sequence. The feed to the waste dumps, heaps, stockpiles and plant can then be taken directly from the mine. This allows dynamic simulation over the life of the mine.
Mining schedules may be entered via the Ore Tonnes and Grade (OTG) feature which links directly to Excel spreadsheets or through import of mine block models in conjunction with the Contouring Module. Both methods link the mine plan to the plant model, an invaluable tool for project evaluation.
