Design & Reserving‎‎‏‏‎ ‎Optimisation Capabilities‏‏‎ ‎

Strategic Design Optimiser (SDO) forms part of RPMGlobal’s Design offering. SDO is the only product available that integrates the complex tasks of stope and development optimisation into a single, coherent process.

The integration of stoping and development enables users to rapidly understand the impact of changes to key economic drivers such as metallurgical grade, mining costs, revenue, forex, and the roll-on effects these have on accessing the mineral deposits to be mined. Determine the most economical network of tunnels to access and extract ore with the industry’s only Strategic Design Optimiser.
