Event Detail

We are operating in challenging times. Despite relatively high commodity prices, there are few mining projects where an easy dollar is to be made. There are particular challenges that must be faced, including the need for cost-effective discovery strategies and methods; evaluation and extraction of often lower-grade complex (geologically and/or metallurgically) deposits; understanding time-ore body variability to achieve the optimum mine plan; and predicting grades in geologically complex deposits that can be achieved by selective mining using wide-spaced data.
