Mining and processing operational audits are an effective means of improving operational efficiencies and controlling costs.

Micon’s senior consultants have extensive experience in mining and processing operations that provides the basis for review of both development properties and active operations. Audits can include resource and reserve reconciliation to identify ore losses and sources of dilution, open pit and underground mine optimisation studies, detailed strategic and long-range operational mine planning, process plant debottlenecking and the benchmarking of costs and other efficiency factors.

Micon’s audit procedure is based on its understanding of the key technical and economic factors which influence the profitability of mining operations, including resource estimation, grade control, mine planning and scheduling, drilling and blasting, mining operations and mineral processing plant commissioning, ramp-up and steady-state operational improvements.

Please contact any Micon office to discuss your operational audit requirements.
