In addition to bug fixes and performance improvements, BMM Explorer V 3.3 also includes:
A new Planning Module to help customers determine the optimum number and location of BMMs to install in a blast.
An improved 3D view functionality with the ability to visualise ore movement in 3D.
Updates to Licence Manager with a new interface for BMM Activator (black activator only) registration.

New Planning Module
The Planning Module helps customers determine the optimum number and location of BMMs to install in a blast. It helps answer the question “If a BMM is placed at a certain location, will it lead to a more accurate post-blast delineation of an ore / waste boundary and therefore more ore?”
This module calculates the optimal number and positions of BMMs in a blast. There are three ways to plan BMM holes:
Plan BMM Holes using blast holes and drawing expected areas of ore or ore-waste contacts
Plan BMM Holes using blast holes and importing preliminary ore polygons, such as bench above
Plan BMM Holes using bast holes and importing final-design ore polygons
The module provides the user with:
A list BMM holes with labels and a table of corresponding X,Y,Z coordinates, in a soft copy exportable format (.csv)
A plan view of BMM holes, with labels, and a table for coordinates in a pdf diagram
Using Version 3.3 you can optimise the location and number of BMM monitoring holes across the shot. This image shows BMMs planned throughout a manually-drawn expected ore area (green box), which also contains a restricted area (red box).
