Case studies demonstrate the range and breadth of Micon’s experience and its approach to meeting clients’ needs.
Illustrating Micon’s experience in the independent review and valuation of mineral reserves and resources, the Alrosa case study also highlights Micon’s qualifications in diamond deposit evaluation.
Gold deposits are an important part of Micon’s mineral resource estimation practice, and the Dalradian case study demonstrates how Micon’s in-depth understanding of the Curraghinalt deposit and its style of mineralization developed over several generations of resource estimate, and provided the basis for the preparation of a PEA for this property.
Timmins Gold Corporation’s San Francisco Mine in Sonora, Mexico, is included here as an example of Micon working alongside the client to meet strategic objectives as these evolve over time. Micon has provided a range of technical services to the project over a period of more than ten years, during which time the property has returned to production and seen capacity expanded.
