GEOVIA Stope Optimizer

Create optimal stope shapes for underground mining

Create and consider multiple possible stope designs to determine the optimal design that meets a set of strategic objectives, often tied to extracting the highest possible economic value from a deposit.

  • Generate optimum stope designs for a range of underground mining methods
  • Produce stope inventories from block models that spatially represent the location of mineralization
  • Generate stope designs that maximize recovered resource value above cut-off grade
  • Create practical mining parameters such as minimum and maximum mining width, anticipated wall dilutions, minimum and maximum wall angles and many other factors
