Applies to Digital Stockpile Application

Users who can see this: All Users.

In the earliest stage of the Stockpile App onboarding process, each site provides certain parameters to configure the Stockpile App and also select some features to thread the data according to their needs. These parameters are then used by the stockpile service to run the stockpile models. Since the mining operations are dynamic and evolve, the configuration may change over time in order to adjust to the reality of the operation at any time.

The Site Configuration Screen is aimed at exposing the parameters used for the configuration of the stockpile service, in order to increase transparency, provide general information at any time to all users and ensure the provided information corresponds to what is required on site.

  1. To get access to the Site Configuration information, click on the Stockpile Icon and then on the “Site Configuration” option.

  2. The site configuration screen will be displayed.
    It contains 3 sub-pages: Stockpiles, Crushers, and Site. By default, it shows first the content of the “Stockpiles” sub-page.


Stockpiles sub-page content

It shows the configuration of each Stockpile on-site, including:

- GPS Filling: It shows if the smart algorithm is ON or OFF for either dump or reclaim events respectively or for the two of them.

(Information about GPS filling Smart Algorithm can be found in the following links: GPS Filling part 1, and GPS Filling part 2 )
- FMS Labels: It refers to the labels (tags) used by the Fleet Management System to identify stockpile locations on site.

- Boundaries: It refers to the area that defines the geographical limits of each of the stockpiles in the stockpile service. It is given in X, Y coordinates. If dump/reclaim events happen outside the boundaries, those are not considered for stockpile modeling.



Crushers Sub-page Content

It shows the following information per Crusher:

- FMS Labels: It refers to the labels used by the Fleet Management System to identify crusher(s) locations on site.

- Boundaries: It refers to the area that defines the geographical limits of each of the crushers in the stockpile service. It is given in X, Y coordinates. If dump events happen outside the crusher boundaries, those are not considered for the material model when providing metrics for material properties and tonnes that feed the plant.


Site Subpage content

It shows the information that is not related to a specific stockpile or crusher but in general for the site.

- Body Ups In preference to dumps: It refers to the coordinates that are being used for accounting dumps events, which is provided by the FMS data.

- Re-scaling stockpile in conformation: It refers to functionality that adjusts mass and volume after the scan confirmation process.

- Contractor data addition: Feature that allows incorporating non-FMS trucks events to the stockpile service.

- Properties limits: It shows the material properties ranges (minimum and maximum values) pre-defined by the site to treat the raw data that serves as input to the stockpile models. If events with material properties in the raw data are out site those ranges, the stockpile service converts them into weighted average grades accordingly once data is processed.
