Orebody Modelling and Strategic Mine Planning SMP 2014

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2014

The Orebody Modelling and Strategic Mine Planning Symposium 2014 followed the outstanding success of previous symposia in 2004 and 2009, reassessing methods and ideas proposed as well as highlighting the latest advances, state-of-the-art technologies, practices and concerns in the field. Over three days, internationally-recognised experts from Australia and around the globe discussed and analysed the following: simultaneous global optimisation of multiple operations and mining complexes; mineral supply chains; advances in optimisation of open pit and underground mine planning; increasing value and productivity in unforgiving markets; strategic innovation and research needs; open pit to underground transition; mine production scheduling, stockpiling and blending; cloud computing and advances in information technologies for optimisation; advances in conditional simulation for complex applications and advances and applications in mine optimisation.
