Developing the next generation of decision-support tools for mining with an emphasis on underground mine ventilation and life-of-mine schedule optimization. These two areas of research are key in maximizing the profitability of a mining operation.
Millions of dollars can be added to the value of an underground selective mining operation through the use of SOT, the Schedule Optimization Tool, originally developed by MIRARCO and now commercialized through Revolution. The SOT+ project will develop three new software modules to extend the capabilities of the existing tool.
