The Challenge

Andres Beluzan, a Mining Civil Engineer and Executive Director of Marco Alfaro Consultores, has been using Surpac throughout the past decade for his work in geological resource estimation.

Dassault Systèmes Response

A recent upgrade to Surpac has made the organization impressed with the efficiency of achieving estimation results at processing speeds nearly 17 times faster.

Benefits

When completing resource estimation for an iron-ore body in northern Chile in which 549,994 blocks were estimated using ordinary kriging, the entire processing time with Surpac 6.7 took only 1 minute and 30 seconds. Previously, the same process took 25 minutes and 26 seconds.
