Open Pit Mine Design, Planning & Engineering
SRK’s mining engineers have strong operational and technical backgrounds and substantial experience gained in mines across multiple commodities, methods, and continents. When highly specialist mining skills are required, SRK has the ability to bring in expertise from our other consulting practices around the world. Our team is focused on producing optimised operable mine designs that make most effective use of your capital.
We have developed an innovative and rigorous mine planning methodology that takes a mineral resource through to a comprehensive technical report inclusive of the life-of-mine plan and technical-economic model. The methodology first focuses on defining and ranking mining options for the development of the deposit, followed by pit optimisation to determine the economic mining depth, scale of operation, and cut-off strategy. Our mining engineers are driven to ensure that appropriate decisions to guide project development are made at the earliest opportunity.
We are aware of the growing need of mining companies to bring their projects into production quickly. We can assist this process by supplying highly qualified consultants to supplement your technical resources to achieve desired outcomes.
