Mine planning & design

Strategic (long-range) mine planning & design can unearth significant value in your project. Sound engineering design requires that the design team capture all the design objectives and generate design alternatives that meet these objectives. Sphinx has experience doing long-range mine planning for surface mines of all kinds. We work with commercial software tools (e.g. GEOVIA Surpac, MineSched and Whittle) as well as custom code that have been generated through our own research. Our services include:

  1. Producing life-of-mine and other long-range mine plans to support feasibility studies;
  2. Reviewing long-range mine plans to identify opportunities to improve the value; and
  3. Generating equipment and fleet requirements to support various phases of your mine plan.
