Mining Plus offers a unique position; we will take our designs through to operations. We don’t run away before the result is obtained, we want to be there with you for the mining experience, because we love mining and stand behind our work.

GEOLOGY

 

Geologists play a key role throughout the discovery, definition, and mining process. Understanding the geology and its control on the mineralisation is a key component in the successful advancement of a project through to mining.

Timely and effective collection and storage of robust geological information about the size, orientation, grade and host environment of the deposit is critically important. 

Getting these two aspects right, the geology and data, will deliver an effective and efficient exploration resource drill program that suits the strategic plan of a company and is therefore able to add significant value to a mining project. Whether the strategy is to define a maiden resource or upgrade an existing resource for a conceptual mining study, the Mining Plus geology team has the practical mine operations’ experience to know that the end game is to commercialise the deposit.

MINING ENGINEERING

Mining Plus offers a unique position; we will take our designs through to operations. We don’t run away before the result is obtained, we want to be there with you for the mining experience, because we love mining and stand 100% behind our plans.

With the larger Byrnecut Group of companies we can offer full service underground tribute mining for your deposit. With this group we can also offer a very capable Operations Review and give feedback on how your operation is performing. We can lead the Business Improvement process capitaliSing on the human capital you already have employed at your mining project.

Mine planning provides solutions through the application of all current and relevant information. Accurate life of mine planning is essential to the operation and the future economic success of your mining project.

Mine production solutions are delivered through a detailed understanding of the mine schedule and mine infrastructure constraints. Mining Plus has extensive experience in drill and blast design, general production and implementation in Narrow vein to large cave mining methods and small satellite to large bulk surface/open pit mining methods.

GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING

Getting the systems and processes right at a mine site can add significant value through the reduction of unnecessary dilution, optimiSation of ground support and tracking and implementation of continuous improvement processes during the mining cycle.

A key component to Ground Control Management Plans is the calibration of models as mining progresses, to constantly build on the body of knowledge regarding the rockmass, and making a safer and more efficient mine day after day and year after year.

GEOLOGY

 

The Mining Plus Geology team understands that the critical input into any mining study is the resource block model.  The team is adept at ensuring the resource estimation is as accurate geologically as possible with any risks and variables understood and documented effectively.

Working closely with the Mining Engineering team to understand what attributes of the projects geology are needed within the resource model to develop an efficient and effective design leads to less rework at the block model handover point and works to “get it right the first time”.

MINING ENGINEERING

Mining Plus, through both employee experience, and company experience have fantastic knowledge of underground and surface mining techniques. From massive underground caving and bulk commodity surface mining to small satellite open pits and narrow vein stoping, we can add value to you deposit.

Mining Plus can complete the Mining Engineering component of various study types:

  • Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) or Scoping Study

  • Mining Method Trade-off Study

  • Prefeasibility Study

  • Feasibility Study

  • Execution Study

  • Reserve Study

 

Mining Plus has Professional and Chartered Engineers who are capable of signing NI43-101 or JORC 2012 Ore Reserve Statements across various commodities.

GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING

The Mining Plus geotechnical team understands that a critical input into any mining study is the geotechnical parameters for design.  The team is adept at ensuring the parameters are as practical as possible, with any risks and variables understood and documented effectively.

Working closely with the Mining Engineering teams the Geotechnical team strive to get design parameters that are practical and workable, giving enough detail to accurately design the mine, but not so much detail that it is not in line with the amount of input data available, or it makes the geotechnical design impractical. We always “get it right the first time” through effective communication and understanding the needs of the end user.
