Mining Optimization Laboratory (MOL)

The MOL is a research consortium directly sponsored by industry members who exclusively receive research    results. MOL research focuses on two major themes:

Mine Planning and Design Optimization.

Simulation Optimization of Mining Systems.

MOL research focuses on using operations research and advanced analytical methods such as mathematical modeling, optimization, discrete event/continuous simulation, and intelligent agents to arrive optimal or near-optimal solutions to complex, large-scale mine planning/operations decision-making problems.
