3. In the Schedule Selected Blocks dialog, Material Movement tab, Loader column, TOTAL row, select [LDR1l] from the Set All drop-down list.

4. Confirm that Selective Mining is not selected. 5. Deselect Hide Empty Categories (the HIGH_GRADE category is currently empty so disabling this option forces it to be displayed in the table) and click OK. 6. A Studio 3 dialog is displayed that states that the processing capacity of PLANT will be exceeded - this is expected as the currently selected block contains more than the PLANT destination can handle in terms of processing capacity - click No. This will ensure that the amount that is mined is restricted to the maximum permissible volume set by the PLANT, in this case 5,000 tonnes. 7. In the ScheduleSelectedBlocksdialog, confirm that the value in the Percent column has been reduced to 14.34% for all categories, in line with the above logic. 8. In the ScheduleSelectedBlocksdialog, click OK. 9. A Studio 3 dialog is displayed which states that the processing capacity of LEACHPAD will be exceeded, again click No. 10. In the ScheduleSelectedBlocksdialog, confirm that the value in the Percent column has been reduced to 12.75% for all categories. At this stage, the values set are appropriate for both the existing PLANT and LEACHPAD destinations. 11. In the Schedule Selected Blocks dialog, click OK. 12. A Studio 3 dialog is displayed which states that the capacity of LDR1 will be exceeded - click No. This time, ISTS has calculated that the available machinery hours associated with the LDR1 Loader is higher than is available, according to the settings made previously (in terms of capacity of machine and available hours according to the maintenance calendar). These values are reduced to conform to the capacity values specified for LDR1 in the Machines exercise. 13. In the Schedule Selected Blocks dialog, Tonnes column, confirm that the values in each row have been reduced (Percent will now equal 9.86%). The first 6 rows of the Material Movement table will now look like the following:

14. In the ScheduleSelectedBlocksdialog, click OK. This allows the selected block to be scheduled for mining 15. In the Schedule Activities dialog, click Done. Reviewing the Schedule, and Completing the Scheduling of the Selected Block 1.
