Mine Planning & Scheduling

Steeply Dipping Coal mines use the Terrace mining method due to the nature of the coal seams within the deposit. These mines can be geologically complex, involve many thin seams and have intricate coal mining methods therefore present a number of challenges not encountered with traditional open pit mines. SDCS is specifically tailored for the complex scheduling issues unique to this type of geology.

SDCS is 100% script-free, and made up of pre-defined logic, which, when combined with the tacit knowledge of mining engineers, automatically determines what is practically possible to achieve across one or many mining operations. This agility gives Engineers the ability to respond rapidly to the market and maximise output delivering shareholder value.
