K2fly Ore Blocker
An Automated Open Pit Ore Blocking Solution
Efficiently and consistently reduce dilution, increase ore recovery and manage mine geology with K2fly Ore Blocker. Deliver better results against mine plans by enabling unprecedented efficiencies and technical assurance.
Better Predictions & Results
Ore blocking can often be subjective with different geological approaches. Our solution allows you to configure constraints and parameters around the process so that results are objective, consistent and repeatable which gives you greater confidence in predicting the amount of high-grade ore.
Reduce Dilution, Increase Profitability
Faster Results & Decisions
Integrations to Extend Capability
Hear from our experts
Our Chief Geoscientist Heath Arvidson and Chief Development Officer Mark Forster discuss the trends, challenges and technology associated with ore recovery and ore blocking
Ore Block Outs
Calculates block-out for a blast or whole bench
Automatically block-out based on configurable constraints, grade cut-offs, and material dilution rules.
Use blast hole assays or a block model as the data source
Rules & Direction
Configure product dilution rules and mining direction
Set default and adjustable cut-off grades
Configurable mining grid sizes
Define maximum and minimum ore and waste block sizes.
Run multiple scenarios with different cut-off grades and different flitch configurations.
Extend your capability
An open application programming interface (API) means the solution can be easily integrated with any third-party system.
Third Party Solutions
Automated Ore Blocking can integrate with any modern mine planning system. For example, blast designs created in Vulcan, automatically creates the ore and waste blocks in our Automated Ore Blocker solution, and then saves the selected blocks, and all related spatial information, to both databases.
