Industry leading underground mine optimisation tool for strategic planning
Optimal mine plans
APEX utilises Industrial Mathematics to generate optimal mine plans which consider a wide range of input parameters such as:
  • Development and production tasks and their dependencies
  • Operational and geological constraints
  • Equipment availability and cycle timings
  • Ore grade and attributes
  • CAPEX, OPEX, contracts and revenue targets
Powerful scenario planning
Easily generate scenarios to understand how your mine plans are affected by operating variances in development and production tasks to determine economic outcomes.
Flexible Integration
APEX can readily integrate with the major mine design packages to produce optimal mine plans at the push of a button.

Powering Mine Planning Decisions

Strategic or Life of Mine Planning Decisions
  • How can construction, development and production tasks be optimally allocated such that overall mine progress is made?​
  • How should tasks in a stoping mine be scheduled to maximise net present value, considering development, production, task dependencies, resource consumption, and system constraints such as ventilation zones and tonnage capacity.​
  • How should development activities be sequenced to support optimal stope sequence?​
  • How can I minimise development duration, to bring forward production ramp up?​
  • When should an existing plan be discarded (instead of defended) based on recorded actuals?​
  • How many work areas should be concurrently operated given resource availability and possible interactions?​
  • How can I sustain my firing rate and/or development heading progression, given interactions on the level and resource availability?
