Exploration and 3D Mine Design Solution

"With Micromine's support, we have been able to improve efficiencies in the exploration process. I don't believe the company would be where it is today without Micromine alongside us. It has assisted Great Panther to become a more efficient operation, with structured work practices and methodologies".

Alistair Barrett, Mapping Manager, Great Panther Silver Ltd.

What is Micromine?

Micromine is a comprehensive and easy to use exploration and mine design solution, which offers integrated tools for modelling, estimation, design, optimisation and scheduling.

Micromine provides users with an in-depth understanding of your projects, so prospective regions can be targeted more accurately, increasing the chance of your project’s success. Miners are provided with interactive and easy-to-use modelling, estimation, and design tools to simplify your day-to-day design and production tasks.

The latest version of MICROMINE's exploration and mine design solution, Micromine 2016, comprises 10 modules. As a scalable and flexible solution, Micromine 2016 provides you with the flexibility to choose the functionality you need when you need it. Additionally, the application’s new 64-bit support means that you can work with more data than ever before. Increase your productivity and cost efficiencies with Micromine 2016.

Micromine Modules

Core Module

Core is the ‘engine’ of Micromine and is always included in every installation. This powerful module allows you to import, validate, process, display and interpret a wide variety of surface, drillhole and subsurface data.

The Micromine Exploration module includes the visualisation, drillhole management, analytical and modelling tools, statistical, and geostatistical functionality needed in a more advanced exploration or resource estimation project.

Read More


The Mining Module is designed specifically for mining engineers, providing powerful and intuitive tools for planning and designing surface and underground mines. Micromine Mining can turn raw mining data into a meaningful 3D designs.

Read More

Stratigraphic Modelling

The Micromine Stratigraphic Modelling module is ideal for any stratified deposit such as coal, nickel laterite, tin, phosphate, bauxite, iron ore and platinum. Its unique modelling workflow ultimately produces a Seam Block Model (SBM).

Micromine Scheduler overcomes the limitations of Gantt chart facilities in applications such as Microsoft Project®. It uses the powerful mine planning and design tools of Micromine Core and Wireframing to generate 3D mining blocks. 

Read More

Resource Estimation

The Resource Estimation module is used for detailed resource analysis and reporting. It provides a comprehensive range of modelling-related functions; many of its block modelling tools are also used for mine planning and reserve estimation.

Read More

Implicit Modelling

Fast track your understanding of any structural or grade boundaries with Micromine’s Implicit Modelling module. The Implicit Modelling module uses radial basis functions (RBFs) to model grade shells, lithology boundaries, faults or surfaces.

The Micromine Wireframing module provides the tools for building, managing and analysing 3D solids and 3D surfaces for advanced exploration, resource estimation, mining and geological modelling.

Read More


The Surveying module is designed specifically to import and process survey data, providing calculation facilities for points, strings, surfaces and volumes collected from mine surveys, mining open pit and underground operations. 

Read More

Pit Optimisation

Pit Optimisation is used to determine the most profitable open pit, given a mineral resource and a set of economic and metallurgical parameters. It is also used to analyse stockpiles and costs over time.
