Paper copies of mapping
are not very user friendly when creating sections
or modelling new stopes - that's whay they get
left in the draw/plan cabinet. We provide the
sevice of capturing your hand mapping (or from
digital photographs) such that when you are
modelling in your mine planning system you have
your geological mapping available in 3D on your
screen in front of you. You can aterrogate for
attributes, create sections, project along strike/down
dip - see it all.
The data we provide is aimed to augment and
complement the facilities available from mine
planning software such as Datamine, Minesite,
Surpac, Vulcan, etc. - and interfaces seamlessly
with all these software systems.
Get the benefits of having your mapping data,
block model and drilling data all in one model
which enables you to make better mining decisions.
This will generally lead to improved grades,
minimise dilution and improving the bottom line.
You do a better job more easily and improve
results for your mine site
You can scan or photograph old manual mapping
information and include the images with the
survey data you send to us. We then capture your
data using your site standards and provide the
results in a practical and useable form. This
process can be applied to walls, faces and backs
of any shape/orientation - even curved decline
walls and rises.
1. True 3D intelligent data with strike and dip
provides better understanding of the geometry
controlling the orebody to assist modelling and
interpretation - generally leads to better
2. A permanent digital record of mapping even
after stripping or development extensions mean
walls or faces no longer exist.
3. 3D structural data is obtained for analysis
and engineering to help minimise dilution,
maximise recovery and reduce unit cost.
Scanning/Photographing of original hand mapping
to capture in true 3D.
OR direct use of digital photographs
output would be as XL compatible tabular data for
drilling and sample data - usually as "*.CSV"
files. Lithology and structural data as string
files with attributes in the descriptor fields -
suitable for direct input into the sites mine
planning software system. You get real data
strings that you can click onto, slice sections
through and interrogate for attributes..
With the use of digital photography to
capture maps or mine surface images this means
that data can be transmitted electronically and
originals do not have to leave site.
