Dassault Systèmes Unveils Innovative, Collaborative Mining Solutions from GEOVIA Within the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

  • Dassault Systèmes is advancing the portfolio transformation of its GEOVIA mining solutions to integrate them within the 3DEXPERIENCE platform
  • The latest GEOVIA updates include the release of the Strategic Mine Planner role and Underground Mine Designer role – solutions for end users that prioritize value optimization, safety and ecological responsibility, time-saving and data flow transparency thanks to generative parametric modeling and a novel optimization technology
  • The comprehensive GEOVIA portfolio powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, including the flagship solutions Surpac, MineSched and Whittle, was showcased at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada Convention on March 5 in Toronto


GEOVIA solutions provide end-to-end virtual twin experiences focusing on the intersection of natural resources, infrastructure and urban planning.  The GEOVIA solutions portfolio is transforming significantly to seamlessly integrate with Dassault Systèmes' 3DEXPERIENCE platform. This integration establishes a unified source of truth, empowering organizations to strengthen their resilience in a swiftly evolving landscape while securing a competitive edge across the entire mining value chain, spanning from pit to port.

The latest advancements in the GEOVIA portfolio include the Strategic Mine Planner role and the Underground Mine Designer role, which are available now.


The GEOVIA Strategic Mine Planner role complements the Pit Optimizer role, allowing users to develop a comprehensive strategic plan that is robust and reliable by evaluating critical input parameters through multiple scenario analyses, from development to closure.

It enables the simultaneous or sequential application of several advanced value-adding options for optimizing capacity to create a robust mining schedule that prioritizes value and ecological responsibility.

The role counts with a novel optimization technology, based on an extension of the Bienstock-Zuckerberg algorithm, which provides increased net present value (NPV) while significantly speeding up runtimes compared to any other commercial solution.




The GEOVIA Underground Mine Designer role enables the user to rethink the design experience of underground mining by evaluating multiple options thanks to generative parametric modeling. Users can generate and evaluate various development designs through a highly automated process, offering an optimal design assessment. Adopting a "Safety by Design" approach allows compliance with requirements and safety standards related to underground excavations, from physical constraints to geotechnical features. The new Underground Mine Designer role allows significant time-savings and transparency through seamless process and data model continuity between different mining levels, development areas and practical access designs.


The two new roles complement the GEOVIA portfolio for mining in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, which also includes Geology Modeler, Geoscience Referential Manager, Earth Engineering Coordinator and Pit Optimizer.




We are excited to participate at ASTANA MINING & METALLURGY 2024!

Meet and interact with our team of mining experts and consultants, learn more about GEOVIA portfolio for mining and its latest advancements and releases at Booth C37.

Visit the session on Digitalization of Open-pit and Underground Mining at Hall 2 on June 7th to hear the Industry Process Consultant Expert Ross Milne talking about the challenges the strategic mine planners currently face, the host of options they can choose to overcome these on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and what functionality may be at their disposal in the future. Learn more on how mine plans can be developed to reflect the complexities, strategic constraints and KPIs of individual operators. Familiarize yourself with a robust and flexible parametric design tool that turns mine plans into practical mine designs that respect the specific geology of the deposit in question as well as external influences, such as commodity prices.

GEOVIA solutions facilitate smooth collaboration, streamlined data exchange, and enhanced workflow efficiency, empowering mining companies to make well-informed decisions, elevate operational performance, and achieve operational and sustainability objectives. Our motivation stems from the vision of modeling a sustainable planet where technology, knowledge and know-how play pivotal roles in advocating responsible management of natural resources. We look forward to connecting with our users, clients, and partners, sharing insights, and actively shaping the future of the mining segment together.
