  • Pond is in wrong cell after deposition

    When you’re modelling a TSF with multiple cells, its important that the pond is represented properly when modelling within a specific cell.  Consider the scenario below. The TSF is made up of two cells.  The perimeter dyke is at elevation 115m, and the splitter dyke is at elevation 114m. Now we’ll deposit some tailings in…

  • Create a storage elevation curve for a basin

    This video shows how to create a storage-elevation-surface area curve for a basin.  To run this, you must have a grid with a dam merged into it. Once the command has completed there will be a new CSV file in the working directory with the storage-elevation-surface area data in it. Note that the surface area…

  • Creating a pond at a target elevation

    This video shows how to create a pond at a target elevation.  To do this, you will first need a grid with some containment (a dam) merged into it.   Troubleshooting If you get any error message, the first thing to do is make sure that the selected grid has containment merged into it.  If you…

  • Find maximum pond elevation

    When new survey data for a site is made available, one off the first things we might want to do is recalculate our pond volumes.  Sometimes the elevation of containment in the survey data isn’t quite what its supposed to be (e.g. survey errors, construction of dam raise not complete at time of survey etc).…
