MinePlanner (Open Pit Diamonds)

This course teaches participants how to take a disciplined approach to mine scheduling using RPMGlobal’s MinePlanner. The course teaches students the core functionality of the product through preconfigured workshops that are designed around real life scenarios.

Course Content


Create a new workspace and navigate workspace explorer.


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

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.

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.
