Stockpile & Inventory Optimization App

Optimize Mine Planning & Mineral Processing Using Scientific AI’s Stockpile & Inventory Optimization application uses Scientific AI to provide real-time 3D ore control models of stockpiles, increasing spatial granularity to maximize value extraction.

Made for Your Mining Challenges

Lack of Information for Stockpile Management

Stockpile modelling using the ‘weighted average’ approach causes confusion about stockpile contents, and more importantly, stockpile properties.

This knowledge gap risks high variance in the mineral processing feeds, including hardness and grade, reducing optimum throughput and recovery.

How it Helps

Granular 3D Block Models of Stockpiles

3D block models combined with real-time Scientific AI keep track of material flow – monitoring where and when the material is handled – from the mine to the stockpile and plant, along with associated properties (e.g., source, tonnes, mineral properties, age).

Integration of data from multiple sources such as Fleet Management Systems and Topography scans increases accuracy and enables predictions of material arrival with preset alarms available.

What you Get

Better Mine Planning and Plant Recovery

Optimize your throughput and recovery with improved blending decisions while eliminating reclaim and dumping errors by knowing exactly where your material is, and the exact residence time.

Decrease waste and risk caused by material remaining in situ for longer than is safe.

Stockpile & Inventory Optimization in Action

The Stockpile & Inventory Optimization application has been developed and refined over several years at multiple customer sites, creating an ‘out-of-the-box’ product that can be rapidly deployed to deliver value within weeks.

The system has exceeded expectations & has moved from proof of concept through pilot to now being implemented at all Anglo operations.
