Course Content


Create a new workspace and navigate workspace explorer.

Dump Design

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

Reserving (Deposit)

Import geological block models and design solids, generate deposit scheduling reserves, and validate the 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 schedule, and analyse the results

Scheduling (Advanced)

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