Dassault Systèmes Response

Implemented GEOVIA GEMS™ SQL, GEOVIA MineSched™ and GEOVIA Whittle™ with onsite GEOVIA Services training and assistance for life of mine estimation, life of mine production scenarios, pit optimization, pit designs and ore control.


Agnico Eagle's Meadowbank mine now has a strong mine plan and streamlined operating process that decreased hauling and construction costs. Their efficient dump design saved $1.4 million. A smoother process for resource updating – rapid analysis - reduced evaluation time from weeks to days. Ore control software and services improved accuracy and increased high grade production output by 70,000 ounces.
