RungePincockMinarco (RPM) has bought the rights to the Mine2-4D design software from MineRP, allowing it to develop its own mine design products to add to its existing scheduling and simulation products.
“This acquisition is really exciting and accelerates our plans to expand our capability across the mining value chain,” said Richard Mathews, CEO at RPM. “Having our own design tool will mean we can provide our customers with a complete planning solution. With design functionality, geological reserving, and operational scheduling, a fully integrated offering will enable customers to immediately evaluate the impact of changes in the physical environment on scheduled activities”.
The company expects to release its first design product towards the end of next year. It will also continue to offer export/import functionality to third-party mine software packages.
