All of Jastrzebska Spólka Weglowa’s coal deposits have been mapped onto a virtual 3D space. The company has just completed the project entitled ‘Deposit model and production planning at JSW S.A.’ aimed at implementing a modern deposit management and production planning system in accordance with the global trends in this respect.
Within the framework of the project, a system has been implemented based on two global IT solutions, which made the deposit management and design process in mines much more advanced. Systems of similar type are the basis for the operation of foreign mining concerns in Australia or the US. In Poland, so far only LW Bogdanka and KGHM mines planned their production based on 3D deposit models. Now they are joined by JSW.
