Safely increasing productivity while cutting costs is a challenge many mines face. Hexagon's integrated mine planning solutions can help. Learn how Hexagon's smart mining portfolio covers the spectrum of mining activities, empowering customers to safely increase productivity and cut costs.
Maximizing your mine’s NPV depends on software that enables pit optimization and strategic scheduling, preferably within a general mine planning suite. Without one, a mine will struggle to evaluate the pit’s economic limits or determine its optimum mining rates. That leaves an operation at the mercy of economic fluctuations and market volatility.
In the live webinar you'll:
- Learn how to maximize your mine's NPV with pit optimization and strategic scheduling.
- Discover technology to generate and manage mine plans using various scheduling scenarios.
- Quickly run scenarios to reduce the dollar per ton cost of equipment related to haulage and reduce capital expenditures.
HxGN MinePlan OP Long-Term Planning is a software package enabling pit optimization and strategic scheduling to maximize NPV. By using industry-standard algorithms for pit optimization and integrating scheduling and haulage into a single optimization interface, OP LTP Pro enables you to quickly run scenarios at various prices and costs. OP LTP Pro incorporates CPLEX calculation of your schedule and equipment simultaneously. It combines the HxGN MinePlan 3D viewer and the block model to enable interaction with geometries for schedule visualization. Integration of the schedule optimization engine and the haulage database is native, avoiding the need to export data to another viewer.
Other benefits include consistent ore feed to the processing plant, (less idle time and maximum production) consistent ore feed in relation to the blend, and consistent equipment requirements throughout the life of the mine.
