Feasibility Studies & Documentation

Across the mining industry, a complex framework of laws and regulations govern all activity from exploration through development and into closure. Successfully navigating this complex regulatory environment requires support from experts who understand how to solve the industry’s biggest challenges and maximize its opportunities in a practical and commercial fashion.

Get it Right – Up Front

We can assist you with acquisitions, equity and project financing, and IPOs, and can provide the intimate knowledge that you need to produce balanced and focused independent reviews and reports. Each project has its own characteristics and unique risk areas, which requires the attention of experienced study managers to efficiently allocate and coordinate resources to produce balanced and focused independent reviews and reports.

What’s the Problem?

Because of our size and geographic spread, we can organise and deploy the required multidisciplinary teams at multiple sites in difficult terrains concurrently and at short notice. This not only reduces costs for the client, but also enables rapid progress on several fronts which is often crucial to meet transaction timelines. We know what it takes for an independent project review to provide assurance, highlight the areas of risk, and provide clients with the necessary real, defensible project information to meet the standards of the investment community.
