Here is a list of software and software providers that you may find useful in addressing rock mechanics situations at your mine. If your company, product, or services are not listed here, please contact us so we may add them.

Geologic Modeling

Drillhole Logging

  • Rockware Inc. LOGPLOT 98, a drillhole logging program
  • GeoSystem Software Drill hole logging software
  • The following all should have drillhole logging input/output routines available for their systems. They are, however, generally not in geotechnical format:
  • Gemcom Software International Inc. Geologic modeling software. Includes drillhole data input, sectional and 3D modeling capabilities.
  • Maptek Home of VULCAN 3D geologic modeling software
  • Datamine Software Ltd. 3D geologic modelling software, stereonet plots, data log (drillhole) logs
  • Lynx Mining Systems Another of the major players in the 3D geologic modeling game
