The mine of the future includes the addition of more detailed metallurgical test work results into the geological block models for mine planning. This can support optimised mine planning to maximise project value and manage for deleterious elements within the ore body.
Sedgman has strong experience in the application and interpretation of metallurgical test work programs, block model analysis and geo-metallurgical modelling. Test work campaigns and their detail are key to detailed design and maximising a project’s NPV. There are numerous factors in which Sedgman can provide insights to help correctly plan, execute, and design; we can support development from test work through to delivery on an engineer, procure, construct basis as well as operational management.
Our in-house experts also have detailed knowledge on linking test work programs and geological block models. We can partner with clients through this process to assist with mine planning, overall mine design and interpretation of the geological model to maximise project value. Our mine planning expertise can also assist in accounting for and treating deleterious elements within the ore body.
