How Whittle Consulting supports mining companies in the Pre-Feasibility & Feasibility Study process via mining optimisation

 

As the leading mining consultants, Whittle Consulting has identified the top 15 Objectives and Outcomes that drive our clients to implement mining optimisation generally, and Whittle Integrated Strategic Mine Planning, in particular.  One of these objectives is to support the Feasibility Study mine planning process of their mining project or operation. Let’s explore this objective in detail.

3. Support the Pre-Feasibility & Feasibility Study mine planning process
Objectives:
  • Support Preliminary Economic Assessments (PEA)
  • Support Pre-Feasibility Studies (PFS)
  • Support Feasibility Studies (FS)
  • Increase mine valuation

Outcomes

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.

At all stages, the Whittle Integrated Strategic Mine Planning process will inform project-shaping decisions to maximise the likelihood of success and overall mine valuation and profitability.
