How do you drive a grade control process that maximises confidence, reduces risk and gives you a high degree of ore body insight and workflow efficiency?

Seequent’s cohesive production geology workflow, applicable to both open pit and underground mines, will transform your project through efficient and repeatable grade control, from data collection, to model updates, to validation and reconciliation reporting.

“Without an integrated workflow that incorporates all available data dynamically, we run the risk of misclassifying material and delaying decision-making due to the lack of a complete picture.”  Pieter Neethling, Segment Director, Mining Operations, Seequent

Setting up an effective grade control workflow means you will be able to minimise the differences between planned and actual ore production.

It means an enhanced geological understanding of the ore body, for better, clearer and faster decisions around what’s ore and what’s waste, reducing the risk of misdirected ore and unintentional dilution, and alleviating the financial impact of any unexpected changes in your orebody.

Sound too good to be true?

Seequent’s production geology workflow, utilises robust tools and dynamic links that will allow you to:

  • Incorporate new data daily
  • Dynamically update your geological model with the latest data, quickly and automatically
  • Dynamically update your Resource estimations and block model
  • Validate the results
  • Generate customised reports with reconciliation
  • Collaborate with a wide set of stakeholders;

Ultimately, enabling a better understanding of any changes in the geological and structural controls on mineralisation which is key to any successful mine operation.

“The integrated Seequent solutions (Leapfrog Geo, Edge, and Seequent Central) have made short-term geological routines more efficient and dynamic in our fast-paced underground mine. This has certainly facilitated our decision-making and saved us time”.
Edson Ferraz, Senior Mine Geologist, Anglogold Ashanti – Cuiabá Mine, Brazil

At Seequent we continue to push the technology envelope in pursuit of better Grade Control. We work closely with mining operations to gain a deeper understanding of their challenges and we constantly develop new and profound ways to communicate and reduce ore body uncertainty and risk.
