OPEN PIT MINING
Pre-Feasibility and feasibility studies:
We conduct pre-feasibility and feasibility studies for extensions to existing open pit operations and we evaluate the feasibility of new and/or proposed open pit operations.
We integrate with Mining House Project Teams during any planning stage, whether it is scoping, pre-feasibility or feasibility studies.
We provide open pit optimization services (using NPV scheduler), as part of our mine design and scheduling services. We use our open pit mine optimization capabilities to assess whether projects should progress to a pre-feasibility study.
We furthermore do mining trade off studies to determine the most financially viable open pit mining method and production schedule for any ore body. We also optimize stockpile schedules to minimize re-handling and logistical challenges.
Mine Design and Scheduling:
We provide Mine Design services within a Project Team environment, in the sense of Mining Engineering and Mine Design. Our services include long term mine design and scheduling, short term mine design and scheduling and reserve reconciliation.
In addition, we optimize blending schedules in long term and short term applications. Our deliverables include the provision of all data in three dimensions together with specific bench plans indicating the mining and pushback sequence required to achieve the set production targets.
ABGM also offer skills development services for design and scheduling applications to assist mines with their sustainable skills development programs within the Mineral Resource Management (MRM) framework.
Resource to Reserve:
We provide a thorough Resource to Reserve solution with a high degree of intellectual analysis. Geotechnical consulting services and Geotechnical modelling (rock fragmentation optimization and slope optimization).
