Hexagon Mining Introduces GeoLogic

Hexagon Mining has unveiled GeoLogic, a modeling software solution to help geologists explore multiple interpretative scenarios and quickly build complex shapes directly from drillholes. Fully integrated with Hexagon Mining’s MineSight Planning Suite, GeoLogic empowers geologists with smart, time-saving modeling. Designed for a geological modeler, GeoLogic leverages the power of implicit modeling by sequencing surfaces and solids to create an airtight geological model. Geologists can now build a timeline of geological events. Reproducible and auditable, the geological model can be quickly updated with new information. GeoLogic features a smart vein-set creation and strata-layer stacking methodology based on MineSight’s true thickness functionality.... (read more)

A Mine of Information on your Mobile

The Coal Authority has today launched a mobile-friendly version of its popular Interactive Map Viewer, which allows anyone to view selected coal mining information on a smartphone or tablet. The Interactive Map Viewer includes INSPIRE compliant data for professional GIS users, enabling them to stream data directly to their own GIS. The new version is now available on gov.uk/coal authority and helps people to find out if a property is near coal mining features. The viewer doesn’t replace the need for a detailed coal mining report. People should still check if a coal mining report is needed by visiting www.groundstability.com.... (read more)
