Dassault Systèmes has released the latest version of Geovia's GEMS mining software.
The newly launched GEMS 6.6 provides geology and mine planning capabilities that support exploration, modelling, mine design, long-term planning, and production scheduling.
The new program also introduces a new ramp design tool and other enhancements for underground mine planners.
According to the company this ramp design tool in the GEMS Tunnel Design Module vastly simplifies the current ramp design process by eliminating small repetitive tasks, rolling them into one easy step.
it also provides the ability to make changes throughout the design process, removing the need to start again when changes are necessary.
Additionally, the Ramp Design tool saves time by selecting the most commonly used ramp styles from a range of pre-configured templates, allowing rapid evaluation and scheduling of resources.
Additional new features also include a regrade-a-line feature allows specified grade parameters to be preserved when moving lines or segments to new positions, eliminating the need to recreate them from scratch; a gradient Smoothing feature removes the need to manually digitise incrementally changing segments with the ability to merge intersections with an existing tunnel centreline so that line segments transition smoothly; and quick view options (XY,YZ,XZ buttons) allow the user to quickly navigate to axis-oriented views.
GEOVIA was formerly known as Gemcom Software prior to its acquisition in 2012
