    When I used to mine works I used the following 3 programs.

    CivilCad it allows multiple surfaces for boundary of the different ore purities.

    Vulcan and Surfer.

    If I had my choice Vulcan would be it.. Civilcad allows you to design and calculated earthworks for example as haul roads rom pads and stack volumes.
