Mine Planning

Mine Planning

In all mining operations, understanding the geology of the terrain is fundamental for successful resource estimation, geotechnical engineering, mine planning and mineral processing. Our approach to geology in this environment is based on addressing the issues that affect the entire mining cycle, from reserves analysis to mine closure. Your facility benefits by ensuring that the entire mining process is based on sound geological models. All too often, ongoing geologic input suffers as production pressures mount. Westward can provide a regular geological mapping schedule, as well as audit your current geological, sampling, and reconciliation processes and ensure that they meet best practice standards.
