MineTwin is developed by Amalgama
MineTwin is based on a detailed discrete-event simulation model of a mine
MineTwin uses Amalgama® platform and libraries to provide fast and adequate simulation models of underground and open-pit mines.
Scenario management environment with 2D and 3D mine layout editors and data correctness checking simplifies data management and scenario building.
MineTwin allows users to simulate years of mine operations within minutes on a regular PC.
Simulation can be run with or without an interactive dynamic 2D and 3D animation. Switching off the animation allows to further accelerate the simulation and scenario analysis.
Using simulation has become an industry standard in mining
Simulation models are successfully used in mining
Unlike traditional tools like Excel models or linear programming, simulation models can capture complex constraints and cyclical dependencies that are present in the majority of mines. Todays modern simulation tools, such as MineTwin, allow to speed-up creation of simulation models.
Verification of annual and quarterly plans
- Will we meet the production plan next quarter?
- How many loaders and trucks should we buy next year?
Selection of the underground railroad extension scheme
- Where to place the underground railway after extension of operations?
- How to balance the throughput between skip hoist and decline?
