PRESS RELEASE: HxGN MinePlan 3D (formerly MineSight 3D) now features full virtual reality, bringing a new and compelling dimension to visualising and sharing mine plans.

MinePlan 3D users can visualise their mine plans and geological models in complete virtual reality. They can then share and showcase their designs to all key stakeholders, using the same medium.

The company said that the release responds to customer feedback, and includes improvements to the application's time and efficiency. MinePlan 3D now automatically generates more accurate solids, easier-to-condition surfaces, and quicker-to-design ramps. The solution speeds up design and evaluation time and delivers unique tools to validate geological models.

Ian Blumel, planning product manager at Hexagon Mining, said: "We are the only general mine planning application with true virtual reality embedded directly within the application. Imagine stepping into a model to validate that the geology is more accurate, that scheduling makes sense, and that the design is sound. MinePlan 3D users can do that. We have listened to customer feedback and delivered improvements that allow users to obtain mine designs faster."
