BlockBuster Components


Blockbuster is a full-feature, off-the-shelf grade control solution which manages daily updates to resource models and mine plans. Blockbuster provides rapid, expert evaluation of data generated from drilling, logging and geological mapping. Add-on modules for mining software enable high-level customisation to achieve site-specific goals.

Blockbuster ensures that selective mining decisions in the production environment are backed up by best-practice processing of geological and assay inputs. Repetitive processes are programmed to improve speed and security. Blockbuster minimises processing time to allow more time for analysis.
