Maptek has announced the launch of Vulcan 2020, with a slew of new features.
The firm says that an enhanced package of geology and mine design tools in the 2020 edition of Vulcan reflect the evolving needs of the industry.
“The new crop of geologists and mining engineers has different expectations of the tools at their disposal,” said Maptek group product manager for mine planning, Jesse Oldham.
“They want to push and extend technology to the limits, using the workflows and automations to do the manual data work so they can spend their time on high-end tasks such as interpretation and analysis.”
The new suite features a drillhole optimiser tool to assist scenario planning, and a newly enhanced automated pit designer and updated open pit compliance tool.
Mr. Oldham said that centralised data plays a fundamental role in the digitalisation process, and the Maptek team designed the new features with this in mind.
“The greatest benefit is found in the ability to connect information to find the ‘signal within the noise’. Maptek is driving a renewed focus on interoperability between applications, rather than recreating a similar capability in each product suite,” he said.
“This gives customers access to superior functionality that represents the most effective, productive and integrated approach to tackling a problem.”
