Conducting mine planning work, training mine planning personnel, developing site-specific planning systems, and auditing of existing plans are services Arundon can provide.
Operational mine planning:
Mine planning and operational planning combined cover the entire spectrum of life of mine plans all the way through to shift plans. The day-to-day running of a mine needs to be aligned with the long-term business goals; this can be achieved by making sure that the relevant information between various disciplines within the organisation is filtered through on all levels. In order to prevent “information overflow” all plans have to be aligned and focus on what is important, as defined by the business plan, without losing the possibility of accessing more detailed information.
Mining project evaluations:
To be part of-, or establish, a project team for a preliminary assessment of economic potential-, conceptual-, pre-feasibility, and feasibility studies. Through partnerships with South African and Scandinavian based consultancy firms competitive prices can be offered.
Mining Engineering project work:
The nature of mining is such that each operation is subject to change. The need to access new reserve blocks, geological-, geotechnical-, or geo metallurgical alterations, reducing grades or yields, or engineering step changes caused by deepening of a pit or underground mine, all are examples of such changes that need mining engineering solutions which Arundon can assist with.
Due diligence support:
The evaluation of a potential mining or mineral acquisition often is an ad-hoc exercise. A mining due diligence should run through a checklist of topics that highlight strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats.
