Vulcan 8.2 - Bigger, Better, Faster

Maptek Vulcan is the world’s premier 3D mining software solution for all stages of the mining life cycle. For more than 30 years Vulcan has been used and trusted by mines worldwide.

Vulcan 8.2, provides users with the ability to design, transform, evaluate, and forecast data like never before. Explore new features and updates such as access to more memory on 64-bit operating systems that allows larger datasets to be managed, an improved user interface, and tools for creating mine designs with increased speed and accuracy.

Vulcan delivers and end-to-end solutions for geological modelling, mine design, planning
and scheduling needs accross the mining lifecycle.

Vulcan 10.1 continues Maptek’s mission to deliver multiple applications on the Maptek
Workbench. Eureka 4.0 is included in the release, integrating advanced drillhole and spatial
analysis tools with Vulcan functionality.

New fuctionality in Vulcan 10.1 streamlines design and planning, optimises drill & blast and
improves reporting and analysis of data.

Features that has been enhanced ;

· Automated Pit Designer
Enhancements in Vulcan 10.1 makes Automated Pit Designer easier and faster to
use, with greater flexibility for Engineering design impact analysis, including
sesitivity studies.

· Statistical Analysis
New statistical analysis, graphing and display options in Vulcan Data Analyser allow
resource geologist and engineers to gain a better understanding of technical data
for resource modelling.

· Open cut drill & blast
Upgrade in Vulcan 10.1 enhance manuall drill design and significantly reduce time
to create or update designs. Users can merge rows when combining blasts and
conduct mininmum burden adjusments.

· Dragline tools
New options in Vulcan 10.1 automate the creation maximum dragline spoil
topography and spreadsheet template setup to compare available spoil room
againts actual volumes.

· Mining block generation
A new mining block generation tool combines design and reserving tools,
streamlining preparation of mining blocks for scheduling. The new options is simple
to set up and run, and supports multiple pits.

· Stope Optimiser
New features provide greater flexibility and control over final stope shapes for
mine planning and scheduling.

· Maptek Workbench
Vulcan 10.1 is delivered as a single insallation combined with Maptek Workbench
and Eureka 4. The Maptek Workbench provides a platform for enhanced workflows
and data sharing between Maptek products, with access to various applications that
support design and modelling tasks.

· Eureka Timed Trial
Eureka provides an interactive 3D environment for visualisation and modelling of
exploration data including drilling, geophysical surveys, seismic surveys, maps and
other imagery, and GIS data.

"Core drillhole and exploration tools are available on a time trial until 30 June

· Underground scheduling
Enhanced integration sees the Vulcan Gantt Scheduler directly reading Vulcan block
models. Multiple vgantt files can be imported and exported for scheduling shorter
range plans from LOM. Schedule Optimisation tool can be added for creating long-
term underground schedules that maximise NPV.

· Decline optimiser NEW
Decline optimiser integrates with level Designer to generate multiple underground
development scenarios for consideration in mine planning.
