GEOVIA’s software and technical services solutions provide you with the tools and capabilities you need to plan, schedule, survey, and manage production from the mine all the way through to final product.

With GEOVIA’s software you will find a wide variety of compelling benefits which will enable you to take your mining projects to the next level of productivity by:

  • Engineering robust, economic, and easy to mine production schedules.
  • Managing drillhole, blasting, and survey information.
  • Calculating and validating volumes quickly.
  • Optimising reserve extraction.
  • Producing high quality to-scale maps.
  • Integrating resource models, pit designs, and survey data results in up-to-date ore markouts and dig plans with grade and tonnage reports.
  • Downloading measurements directly from total stations and GPS recorders.
  • Revaluating and optimising mine plans to deliver maximum economic return.
  • Managing production from the mine, trucking, plant, stockpiling, processing, to final product.
  • Identifying production and equipment problems that would otherwise remain hidden.
  • Improving alignment between planned and actual production.
  • Managing your data more effectively to secure it, version it, and make it available where and when it is needed.
