Operational Technical Support for Mine Geology, Planning & Environment

Based on our experience of working with operational teams on site we understand the need for practical, timely and pragmatic advice. Because many aspects of geochemistry and waste management are very specialised, and cross discipline, not every site is fortunate enough to have a dedicated “expert” on hand to assist with operational aspects of mine waste and environmental management. In addition we understand the challenges that are presented by the on site implementation of technical guidance produced by experts from third parties. Examples of operational technical support include assisting exploration teams with sampling and drilling programs for sample collection, working with mine geology teams to develop waste block models and waste grade control sampling programs, working with mine planners to develop life of mine material balances and production schedules and working with closure planning teams to develop concept designs for waste storage facilities. Our experience extends to compliance and management such as developing site operating manuals and management plans, operating procedures and completing compliance audits. Whatever the need we can offer the technical support needed to keep the trucks moving.
