The integrated mine design is investigated ten years after its initial deployment to the PC computer platform. A review of literature is provided for students interested in computer application in mine planning and orebody modeling. The results of a survey of Nevada gold mines are presented as a snapshot of computer use in the mining industry. Commercial integrated mine software is critiqued and the attributes that define a reliable software are discussed. A checklist is presented to help qualify features of integrated mine software needed for mine design from project initiation through mine production for the mine engineer assigned to assess and procure a mine software package.
