Stocked Blocks

Tracing Stocked Blocks

There are two common ways that mining software packages deal with stockpiles:

    • Reclaiming blocks according to an average grade for the entire stockpile.
    • Reclaiming blocks selectively in any required sequence such as FIFO, LIFO etc.

Both options are approximations and have their advantages and disadvantages.

Currently, SimSched reclaims blocks selectively from stockpiles according to the highest Economic Values. Read more about Reclamation Policy.

How to trace blocks?

The user can analyze SimSched’s output in the files MinedBlocks or AllBlocks and report the periods in which a block has been mined and when it has been processed.

GLOSSARY

      • FIFO = First in, first out
      • LIFO = Last in, first out
