A new strategic panel-caving product developed by Maptek⢠targets the most cost effective underground mining method in a transparent, analytical way while maximising productivity. Panel, or block caving, is widely considered the ânew frontierâ as mining operations move towards underground methods. Maptek CaveLogic allows engineers to more effectively plan and reduce the financial risk associated with this subsidence mining method that involves massive volumes of material and large investment. Importantly for users, the calculations in CaveLogic are transparent. The planning engineer is in total control of tracking all of the variables and processes. This leads to better strategies with direct implications for improving business outcomes. CaveLogic is applicable to greenfield and brownfield projects. It can also guide management decisions at open pit operations where feasibility studies are required to evaluate the transition to underground mining. The system works directly with Maptek Vulcan⢠mine planning systems.
