3D modeled inventory system of available natural resources, including what, where, and how much has been gathered based on logistics and completed mining operations. This would be able to determine the specifications of the composition of the inventory of natural resources, even to specifics such as the quality, the type, and the size of specific compositions. This improves the mining process through gathering the minerals that are demanded, rather than mining in areas where the mineral supply is unknown or the information is not detailed.
