Open source synthetic mine generator

I'd like to share an open source project that generates synthetic datasets of 3D features seen in underground mines: drill holes, geological shapes, block models, and mine workings (tunnels). It is possible to create several mine levels and to specify ranges and other distribution settings to produce configurations that mimic existing mines. The tool has been written in such a way…

Approach to Estimating Shaft Costs

Hi Everyone...I posted this in the Shaft Sinking Group but thought it might get a lot more exposure and potential input here.

I work for a group that conducts mine cost estimating and we would like to begin updating an article that we publish regarding the costs to sink shafts. Currently, we provide pre-feasibility level estimated costs for a number of diameters (or rectangular dimensions) based on low, medium and hard Uniaxial Compressive Strengths. …

Trolley Feasibility

Hello all,

Just signed up with the group and kudos to Harald for setting this up.

Interested to see if any group members have experience with operating or the technical evaluation of trolley assisted haulage. I am interested in evaluating the technology for our project, but relevant experience seems hard to find.

Looking forward to your replies

Cascadia Scientific Launches Mine Road Fuel Intensity Heat Mapping

 

Diesel fuel can constitute as much as 30% of a mine’s operating costs. Moreover, the largest single contributor of energy consumption in an open pit mining operation is haul trucks. Therefore, it is no surprise that…

Mining and Smart Spaces: The Next Evolution

Smart spaces are the inevitable evolution of workplaces in the mining and resources industry.  While it will become comprehensively pervasive through the workplace, they are personalised to individuals, and embody how workplaces will ultimately harness and interact with vast datasets and technology.  While the universe was created by several fundamental forces, the smart space is formed by the collision of accelerating technologies leveraging from one another and peaking at the same time. …

The mining industry is so colossal that I thought it would be genuine to set off the first among several conversations not in terms of sectors (crushing, maintenance, drilling, processing, tunneling, underground mining, etc.), but connectivity, for what it is worth, which I believe is one of the most sensitive aspects in mining as it touches all those sectors.

I want to be more specific here, otherwise, this discussion…
