HxGN MinePlan 2020 Release 2 adds integration and functionality
By Ian Leones, Hexagon Mining
MinePlan’s second major update of 2020 brings new functionality, improved performance and new integration possibilities.
Reserves 4.0’s new interface streamlines the setup process, benefitting users of all MinePlan scheduling tools such as Schedule Optimizer, Activity Scheduler and Blast. Integration with Comet is now available through an export setup in report options.
Blast 4.5 introduces safety exclusion zones for personnel and equipment around your blast pattern. Choose the radius for each zone as well as the current surface, and the software will calculate the exclusion zone solid and line of intersection. These geometries help determine safe areas around a blast design and allow the export and manipulation of existing data with these new geometries.
MinePlan Release 2 2020 now seamlessly integrates with other Hexagon solutions that will deliver value for mining operations. Users can now link schedules and publish blast designs directly to MineEnterprise, closing the loop between planning and operations.
