Bentley's MineCycle™ is a set of planning, survey, and design software applications that facilitate optioneering to help mining industry participants address priority challenges, including the need for a continuous mine planning cycle.
MineCycle™ includes the following three products, each one having special features and capabilities:
MineCycle Designer is the only mine design application that enables a single dynamic environment for design, evaluation, and scheduling to empower mine owner-operators to rapidly develop economically optimal mine plans.
MineCycle Survey is an underground and surface mine survey application that enables owner-operators to make faster, higher-quality planning and operational decisions with rapid and accessible survey intelligence.
MineCycle Material Handling is a purpose-built conceptual design application for bulk material handling facilities. The software enables EPCs and consultants to complete preliminary designs up to 30 percent faster and with higher quality to deliver more competitive feasibility studies and bids.
