How would I convert the MineSight (*.msr) files to Shapefiles.
MineSight files are used in MineSight Software which is used for creating block models in 3D.

Minesight does export shapefies; also recall that dxf files are always a valid alternative.
Other file formats are less common, hence difficult to handle; however mapinfo can import srg files, not msr as far as I know.
To export from minesight, just right click on the linear feature (material) in minesight and select appropriate export filter. I was working with such exported files quite a while, it works.
Current MS3D can export DXF, Shapefiles, DTM, ASCII, and a number of other formats.
