Mining Simulation

Remaining efficient, productive and profitable is essential for all types of modern mining operation. Doing so requires innovation, both in making the most of existing resources and with the implementation of new technology.

Introducing innovation to existing operations, or integrating modern technologies into new projects, causes interruptions and delays, not doing so jeopardizes long-term productivity. Simulation models built with AnyLogic offer a way forward, providing mining output statistics and a dynamic view of operations for analysis, optimization, and experimentation, all without operational interruption.

From developing optimal excavation plans based on exploration data to delivering efficiency in processing, AnyLogic delivers the tools. Test what-if scenarios, evaluate mine operations over time, and conduct risk analysis. Throughout a mine, efficiencies can be found.

Modeling constraints on vehicle movement in and around a mine leads to refined routing and scheduling. Evaluating and forecasting equipment utilization allows lease and fleet configuration optimization. Mine phase scenarios can be tested, analyzed, and optimized. Visualizations for presentation and verification provide accessibility for all involved, giving you the power to drive innovation and boost productivity for the long term.

AnyLogic simulation modeling provides a virtual environment for the analysis, testing, and optimization of mining activities. With the flexibility and power to capture operations, overall and in detail, you make informed decisions for your mining operation. Simulation modeling offers new insights and gives the freedom to experiment and innovate, without risking interference, to maximize the productivity of your mine, now and into the future.

AnyLogic can be used for:

  • excavation planning and mining phase development, analysis, and optimization
  • equipment utilization rates, optimal fleet configuration and lease determination
  • routing and scheduling within and around the mine
  • dynamic mining rate forecasting and analysis
