We are experienced in a wide range of underground mining methods including such as sublevel open stoping, sublevel caving, room and pillar, cut and fill, VCR, narrow vein mining and Alimak.

Our capabilities:

  • Selection and optimisation of both mining methods and ore extraction systems.

  • Mine design, from conceptual to detailed engineering level.

  • Mine scheduling, from short term to Life of Mine.

  • Selection and engineering of backfill systems.

  • Underground mine infrastructure and ventilation engineering.

  • Analysis and optimisation of mining recovery and dilution.

  • Mobile and stationary equipment selection.

  • Mine development and production blast design.

  • Cost and financial modelling.

  • Mineral resource and reserve reporting.

 

We also have ample experience in surface mining operations and engineering. 

Our capabilities:

  • Ultimate pit and pushback optimisation and selection.

  • Mine design, from conceptual to detailed engineering level.

  • Mine scheduling, from short term to Life of Mine.

  • Ancillary infrastructure, access roads, ROM pads & stockpiles, dewatering systems.

  • Production drill and blast design.​

  • Analysis and optimisation of mining recovery, dilution and design parameters.

  • Mobile and stationary equipment selection.

  • Cost and financial modelling.

  • Mineral resource and reserves reporting.

 

IGAN has assisted dimension stone companies to both increase the geological knowledge on their deposits and to optimise their operations.

Our capabilities:

  • Optimum ultimate pit evaluation adapted to dimension stone particularities.

  • Open pit design and evaluation.

  • Surface infrastructure and waste tip design.

  • Use of in-house developed image analysis technology in the allocation of material qualities to geological models.

 

We develop methods for the analysis and improvement of grade control processes.

Our capabilities:

  • Sampling QA/QC and statistical studies.

  • Audit of existing sampling techniques and protocols.

  • Design of sampling protocols.

  • Modifying factor (mining dilution & recovery) estimation.

  • Grade control sampling economic optimisation with conditional simulation.

 

We apply our experience in mine operations, technical services and management into the development of staff, departmental organisation and processes.

Our capabilities:

  • "Fit to role" mining software training. 

  • Role-specific, training in best practice mine planning techniques.

  • Development, analysis and mapping of both planning procedures & technical standards.

  • Technical department structure and role requirements analysis and design.
