Equipped with three new geological and resource modelling tools, the Origin 2022.5 has also been upgraded for performance efficiency with three-dimensional geographic information system mapping, block modelling and charting.

With the new structural trend tool, users can improve the accuracy of resource estimates by integrating real deposit geometry into their estimations at the click of a few buttons.

The new vein network tool models all veins in a single step, bypassing the normal time-consuming macros and manual boolean operations.

This can help where there is multiple loads or complex intrusion-style deposits.

The new indicator grade shell tool reduces estimation risk and prevents domain errors, by giving an unbiased and accurate method to represent grade domains. 

Micromine chief strategy and product officer Kiril Alampieski said Micromine had always been the tool of choice for explorers worldwide.

"The three key new tools, amongst the other new tools featured in this release, are instrumental in making life easier," he said.

"Essentially, we want geologists to be able to prospect smarter and model faster."

Alampieski said there was a 90% loading and unloading speed improvement in wireframes, with wireframe sets with shaded draw styles rendering 100 times faster.

"Furthermore, the implicit modelling tool's 'points per sphere' are auto calculated, resulting in up to 65% performance improvements and more precise outputs," he said.

Alampieski said Micromine Origin had three scalable and cost-effective subscription plans for users in the early exploration stage, through advanced resource estimation needs.
