Automated Ore Blocking

Block out processes have previously been manually created by a geologist

The solution replaces the manual block-out process, typically performed by a mine geologist

Using Automated Ore Blocker can increase the value of your ore recovery


K2fly’s Automated Ore Blocker replaces the manual block-out process with an automated process:

  • User configured automation constraints
  • Creates ore/waste block solids
  • Calculates block-out for a blast or whole bench
  • Configures flitch heights if needed
  • Adjustable cut-off grades
  • Material dilution rules
  • Integrates with K2fly Mining Geoscience solution


  • Maximises ore recovery for a given set of constraints
  • Optimises flitch heights (optional)
  • Can run multiple “scenarios”
  • Integrates with any modern mine planning system
  • Will be integrated with K2fly Model Manager
  • Produces objective and repeatable ore block designs
  • Can improve ore recovery by as much as 5-10% leading to additional revenues
