Agnico Eagle has recently incorporated new mine planning and ore production software from Dassault Systémes at its Meadowbank gold mine in Nunavut, Canada. It is using this to simulate various life-of-mine plans, test their impacts on production and shift operations accordingly

Agnico Eagle has saved US$1.4 million and increased output at Meadowbank by 70,000oz in recent months

“Having tools like these provides a smooth workflow that allows you to look at various options and evaluate several differences in designs,” said Eric Ramsay, senior mine geologist with Agnico Eagle.
