Maptek's Vulcan Update to Be Featured at PDAC

By CIOReview | Tuesday, March 8, 2016

FREMONT, CA: Maptek, a provider of mining software and hardware services, announces the update of Vulcan 10, a 3D mining software, which transforms raw mining data into dynamic 3D models, to be displayed at this year’s Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC).

The Vulcan 10 boosts in GPU acceleration to complete estimations faster for some parameters. Block model attribute importing has been upgraded to use an intelligent process to assign values into block models several times faster. Vulcan 10 delivers additional support for multi-threaded processors for up to 10 times in better performance over the older version of Vulcan 9.1. Customers will receive a free 12-month trial of Eureka Core drillhole viewing and exploration tools alongside the Vulcan 10 release.

Here Maptek’s optimization and I-Site mine survey solutions will be well suited for companies with well-defined resources. The Optimization techniques provide clear evidence to demonstrate the economic potential to management and investors. Evolution is an agile and dynamic solution for targeting both complex and real world challenges. The latest I-Site survey technology will also be on display at the Maptek booth. Pre-mining benefits include generating accurate terrain models for import into Eureka, or Vulcan for 3D representation of the topography.

“There’s no need to compromise on resolution or data quality due to the size of the geological model. Users can cut models into slices and toggle through sections on screen and the display is modified seamlessly,” said Ian Lipchak, Maptek North American Solutions Specialist.
