Management :Early-stage Project Development

NAMIMCO provides mineral industry consulting for the early-stage scoping, preliminary economic assessment, pre-feasibility, and feasibility stages for new projects, mine expansion, and the reopening of brownfield mines. Our staff understands the mining financial industry’s reporting requirements.

Our services meet the standards of public disclosure required by the Canadian Securities Administration and Toronto Stock Exchange’s National Instrument (NI) 43-101 regulations, the Australasian Stock Exchange’s Joint Ore Reserves Committee (JORC) Code, the London Stock Exchange’s Alternative Investment Market (AIM) Rules, the South African Mineral Resource Committee (SAMREC) Code for the Reporting of Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves, and other reporting standards.

Order of Magnitude, Scoping, and Preliminary Economic Assessments 

NAMIMCO performs technical and economic studies, including resource evaluation, mine engineering and production forecasting, process requirements, capital and operating cost estimates, and projected cash flows for the initial development of the mine opportunity. Our expertise encompasses making conceptual evaluations of production alternatives and identifying tradeoff studies that are beneficial in further defining the opportunity and in identifying areas where additional study is needed to move the project forward. 

Pre-feasibility and Feasibility Studies

 NAMIMCO has significant experience in pre-feasibility-level and feasibility-level resource modeling, mine planning, and costing for open-cut and underground mine design, processing, infrastructure, leaching, tailings management, and mine water management. Each project has unique circumstances that require attention to detail, and we have proven we can successfully complete projects in a practical, efficient, and safe manner. With our wealth of in-house talent, we provide consulting services for all aspects of a project at the feasibility level. Our work encompasses ores processed by flotation, gravity and magnetic separation, and leaching, including heap leach operation and the incumbent water management issues. We believe using an integrated team that encompasses all elements of a study benefits the cost and schedule of the project. Our design teams work hand in hand to create a unique synergy that leads to a comprehensive, smooth -flowing study report.
