Minemax Planner 4.1.2 has been recently released with bearing-based interpolated slopes, enabling users to define slope angles for specific bearings using geometry sub-regions or attribute sub-regions, improving the accuracy of the slope pit design during pit optimisation. This improvement is part of the easy-to-use ultimate pit workflow, so it takes only seconds to set it up and get on with optimisation.
On the set slopes screen, an unlimited number of bearings with specific slope angles can be added. slope angles can also be set up for only a few bearings, and Minemax Planner interpolates slope angles for the unspecified bearing ranges between 0 – 360°.
Bearing-based slopes can be set up for specific geometry sub-regions or attribute sub-regions (grades, rock types, etc.), which gives a flexible solution to address complex mine design requirements and geotechnical issues in your pit slope design.
Minemax Planner 4.1.2 is available for download for all maintained users.
