Since mid-2016 Rio Tinto’s Oyu Tolgoi mine in Mongolia have been using the Leapfrog Central model management platform to track changes in the long and short term resource models for the open pit.

In 2003, ARANZ Geo released the first version of Leapfrog. Leapfrog’s implicit modelling engine brought about a paradigm shift in the way geologists generate 3D interpretations. Organisations that have embraced this new technology have realised significant benefits by building dynamic implicit models in less time.
Now, in 2016, we are releasing Leapfrog Central, a model management system that will bring about another paradigm shift, to continuous modelling.
What is continuous modelling? Continuous modelling supports incremental changes to models as data becomes available, and because the development of the model is visible to the wider organisation, decisions can be made based on the latest data and the most current understanding.
