The best time to commence Whittle Integrated Strategic Mine Planning is at any point during the planning stages of a mining project. The optimal time is during the Pre-Feasibility Study stage, before any major decisions are made. However, significant benefit is also achieved when Whittle Integrated Strategic Mine Planning is implemented during the Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) process, and more particularly, during the Feasibility Study (FS) stage.
