Resource model

The resource model starts with raw data from exploration but should be considered as a knowledge base of information for determining what is ore (which parts of the resource can be extracted and processed to make an acceptable return on investment).

Many factors change the in-ground value of material, and these factors are dynamic and change as more business intelligence is gained on operational performance and new market opportunities or shifts in operating cost drivers.

Optimiser includes the resource model as as a dynamic knowledge base, to be added to with new business insights and to be revised as new correlations are discovered from data analysis.
