With advancements in technology, it is now possible to produce a block model, design, sequence and schedule for a mining project at all study levels so the mining strategy can be demonstrated to the board or potential investors. This no longer takes hundreds of hours of digitising; adding significant value to the project.
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 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
Mining Plus has Professional and Chartered Engineers who are capable of signing NI43-101 or JORC 2012 Ore Reserve Statements across various commodities.
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.
