Course Content


Create a new workspace and navigate workspace explorer.

Reserving (Deposit)

Import geological block model and design solids, generate deposit scheduling reserves and validate the data.

Dump Design

Configure dump design solids, create scheduling dump blocks, analyse and review dump data.


Import the haulage strings, interpret and rationalise the data, analyse the network.

Scheduling (Introduction)

Import deposit & dump reserves, import the haulage network, configure the schedule, establish mining rules and objectives, execute the plan, and analyse the results.

Scheduling (Advanced)

Further refine the schedule using real-life scenarios and more advanced functionality.
