Micromine says its exploration and resource estimation solution has just got better with its latest version, Micromine Origin 2022.5.
The enhanced functionality of the company’s flagship product is led by three brand new tools to equip exploration and resource geologists with even greater confidence in their geological decisions.
At the click of a few buttons, users can improve the accuracy of their resource estimates by integrating real deposit geometry into their estimations with the new Structural Trend tool, the company said.
The new Vein Network tool, meanwhile, facilitates all veins to be modelled in a single step, mitigating the typical time-consuming macros and manual boolean operations. This provides an ideal solution, especially when modelling vein deposits with multiple loads or complex intrusion-style deposits, according to Micromine.
Due to the high risk for over or underestimation, Micromine Origin 2022.5’s new Indicator Grade Shell tool mitigates estimation risk and prevents domain errors by providing an unbiased and accurate method to represent grade domains, the company added.
Micromine’s Chief Strategy and Product Officer, Kiril Alampieski, said: “Micromine has always been the tool of choice for explorers worldwide. Therefore, a significant focus on the 2022.5 release has been on strengthening our geological and resource modelling tools to ensure we remain at the forefront of mining software.
“The three key new tools, amongst the other new tools featured in this release, are instrumental in making life easier. Essentially, we want geologists to be able to prospect smarter and model faster.”
There’s also a boost in performance efficiency with Micromine Origin 2022.5, including 3D GIS, block modelling and charting, the company says.
“Regarding wireframes, there’s a 90% loading and unloading speed improvement, and wireframe sets with shaded draw styles now render over 100 times faster,” Alampieski said. “Furthermore, the Implicit Modelling tool’s ‘points per sphere’ are auto calculated, resulting in up to 65% performance improvements and more precise outputs.”
