AMC at Perumin 2019

AMC Consultants is pleased to participate in this year’s Perumin 34 Convention in Arequipa, Peru.

Perumin is the second largest mining convention in the world and one of the most anticipated events of the year for our two offices in Canada. The convention will take place 16-20 September, 2019 and is organized by the Peruvian Institute for Mining Engineers (Insituto de Ingenieros de Minas del Perú).

This year, we are excited to share the Mine Smarter way with Perumin attendees at our presentation “The Capabilities of Modern Mine Planning Software” by Open Pit Manager and Principal Mining Engineer, Philippe Lebleu. See below for more details.

The Capabilities of Modern Mine Planning Software

Category: Mining Operations
Main Author: Philippe Lebleu
Secondary Author: Mary Alejo
Date: Tuesday, September 17th
Time: 12:10 PM – 12:30 PM
Auditorium : Chachani II
Venue: Cerro Juli Convention Center

In this presentation, Mary Alejo and Philippe Lebleu will discuss the newest generation of mine planning software and how it helps miners optimize complex operations well into their future.

Recent advances in open pit strategic mine planning software enable the optimization of intricate mining problems associated with a complex and vast array of parameters and constraints.

Considering the current resurgence in commodity prices, every mining company should concentrate on strategy optimization to ensure that operations move from a cost-focused mindset to one centered on value maximization in order to reap the benefits of the upturn in the mining industry.

Recent advances in open pit strategic mine planning software enable the optimization of intricate mining problems associated with a complex and vast array of parameters and constraints.

These programs simultaneously optimize the mining sequence, cut-off grade selection, mining equipment number and capital expenditure to maximize the net present value (NPV) of a project or deliver on corporate goals.

This allows for rapid evaluation of complex problems and helps engineers and management make educated decisions regarding the best mine development or optimization strategy to adopt.

These modern techniques should be adopted at the strategic or life-of-mine planning level to ensure mines are developed in the most valuable fashion within the bounds of practical mining.
