A world-leading 3D blast movement solution powered by artificial intelligence (AI) and a physics engine, accurately predicting where ore material lands – minutes after the blast.
The Muckpile Block Model™ Benefits
Our clients and partners
For the Geology Manager, OMP is a revolutionary blast movement solution that utilizes a physics engine and machine learning to quickly transform the Grade Control Block Model into an accurate Muckpile Block Model™ within a few minutes of a blast.
By utilizing an AI-driven 3D blast movement algorithm, OMP accurately moves every single cubic meter block from the insitu volume of your Grade Control Model into a Muckpile Block Model™ while preserving mass and rock data. With the ability to calculate hundreds of thousands of vectors in under a minute, OMP provides precise information on how the ore has been moved and mixed during blasting which enables the geology team to optimise markout.
As a software-only solution, OMP seamlessly integrates into your existing workflow and general mining software such as Datamine™. By significantly reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO) of blast movement measurement and the number of people on the muckpile, OMP is a cost-effective and efficient solution for mines facing challenges with ore loss, dilution, or mixing.
For Drill and Blast
As a Drill and Blast Manager, optimizing fragmentation, reducing Drill & Blast costs, and improving safety are top priorities. However, achieving optimal fragmentation and reducing costs while considering the impact on ore loss, dilution, and mixing can be challenging without an accurate report on blast effectiveness.
OMP’s Muckpile Block Model™ provides an accurate record of a blast’s effectiveness relative to the blast design. This information can be used over time to optimize blast design and drilling practices, minimizing ore loss, dilution, and mixing while also reducing meters drilled and explosives needed to achieve the desired fragmentation.
In addition, OMP is a software-only solution to blast movement prediction and significantly reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO) of blast movement measurement by eliminating the need for extra blast holes, stemming and sensors and minimising the number of people on the drill pad and muckpile.
As a Mine Manager, optimising NPV and managing the constraints of mining and safety can be challenging. Making decisions about ore control, mining production, and ore processing can significantly impact ore recovery, metal recovery, and safety.
OMP offers a proven software-only solution to blast movement that seamlessly integrates into your existing workflow and software. This solution reduces the need for people on the muckpile, improving safety and reducing costs.
OMP’s Muckpile Block Model provides missing information to help the Drill & Blast team optimize their blasts, the geology team optimize markout, the load and haul teams get the right material to the right place, and the geometallurgy teams recover more metal.
With OMP, Mine Managers can rely on accurate blast effectiveness data to make informed decisions that improve ore recovery, metal recovery, and safety. This enables them to optimize NPV while balancing the constraints of mining and safety.
