OptimalSlope has been tested on 4 peer reviewed case studies of small-medium metalliferous mines with increases of Net Present Value obtained in comparison with the design based on traditional methodology of up to 52%.
OptimalSlope helps mining companies towards their ESG objectives. Adopting the pitwall profiles determined by OptimalSlope leads to average reductions of CO2 equivalent emissions of 30,000 tonnes a year per mine. If our solution was adopted in all mines, a reduction of 150 million tonnes of CO2 a year could be achieved.
OptimalSlope replaces the need for time consuming back and forth between geotechnical and mining teams in the strategic life-of-mine design phase. The output of OptimalSlope can be fed directly into the pit optimiser of choice to work out pushbacks and the Ultimate Pit Limit.
OptimalSlope is highly parallelised so that the heavy calculations involved to find the optimal profile for each sector of a mine pit can be performed in reasonable times. A user friendly GUI is used for the input and output of the data.
OptimalSlope does not require any dongle or physical device but it is deployed on the AWS cloud. This allows best management of computational resources so that the right computational power is always made available.
We have a flexible pricing model: you can purchase a licence for use of the code on a subscription basis (annual or monthly) or you can ask a quote for a consultancy to get the strategic design of the mine and anything in between including training.
