What's New?

Stratigraphic Deposits

Geological Database (GDB)

GDB stores downhole survey, lithology and quality data and also produces standard, summary and custom, user-defined reports. It graphically displays data such as lithology, intervals, downhole geophysics as well as allowing geologists to conduct correlations, composition, washability calculations and classical 2D geostatistical studies.

Geological Modelling Modules 


Stratmodel empowers geologists with the ability to complete stratigraphic modelling of inherently complex environments. Stratmodel's advanced structural capabilities enable geologists to gain accurate and detailed understandings of subsurface structures influencing their deposits.

Block Model

Block Model has the ability to efficiently and accurately model both stratified and non-stratified deposits using conventional and industry standard block modelling tools and processes. Users can generate models and interpolate geological data to develop wireframe solids as well as export to 3rd part optimisation engines.

Open Cut

Open Cut allows mine design and planning engineers to generate and test mine designs for short-term production  operations and long-term feasibility studies. Engineers can  also design haul roads interactively in 3D and determine  cut and fill requirements for mass balancing and optimisation.


MineScape’s Dragline module allows mine design engineers to apply a variety of burden movement  techniques including pre-strip, cast blasting and  production earthworks to simulate the execution of total pit  burden removal strategies.

Drill & Blast 

This module has sophisticated tools to quickly lay out an optimum blast pattern, project blast holes to surfaces, and renumber, resequence and export hole layout reports to GPS equipped drill rigs. It also produces plans showing blast exclusion zones for simple communications around operational blasting.

Specialised Modules 

Underground Coal 

This module quickly produces and tests short and long term plans for longwall and room & pillar mine designs. It then visualises and manipulates these designs at any stage of the plan development using
MineScape's interactive 3D CAD suite.

Ring Design 

A purpose-built module for underground metals mining operations, it has the ability to create designs for block caving operations, long-hole and cut & full stope mining methods. Design parameters can be replicated and semi-automated through the use of
templates saving time and resulting in accurate,  repeatable designs.

Pit Optimisation

A simple, easy-to-use solution to delineate an  ultimate economic pit shell. Pit optimisation utilises the power of MineScape's CAD suite while directly accessing MineScape block models to simplify the pit optimisation process.


This powerful and customisable scheduling engine enables mine planning engineers to optimise mining methods and sequences by providing material movement and machine activity forecasts for short/long term operations, delivering better predictability and reliability with respect to tonnage and production outputs.

4 of the top 6 mining companies in the world use MineScape.

MineScape's geological modelling & mine design capabilities help produce over 75% of the coal produced in Indonesia.

Companies using MineScape have seen a 75% reduction in the time to build a geological model.
