CSMine was developed as an easy to learn and use microcomputer-based program for teaching the principles of computerized mine planning. The main emphasis of the program is on open pit mine planning, but CSMine is general enough so that many of its functions can be used for underground mine planning as well. The program is designed to take raw drill hole data through the block modeling process to the generation of the final economic pit limits. Emphasis within the program has been placed on data manipulation and graphical presentation. Major features of the program include:

1) Graphical displays of drill hole data: a) Drill hole plan maps. b) Drill hole section or profile maps.
