How K-MINE helps during

Pre/Feasibility Study

Pre/feasibility study 2Finding the final contours of a quarry based on economic indicators
Pre/feasibility study 2Estimate the size, grade, and extent of mineral resources using a combination of data from exploration, sampling and drilling
Pre/feasibility study 2Determination the technical and economic viability of the project
(more detailed assessment of the resource estimate, mining methods, infrastructure requirements, and environmental considerations)
Pre/feasibility study 2Assessment of reserves/resources of mineral materials

During the pre/feasibility stages, K-Mine will help you determine the technical and economic feasibility of extracting minerals from a particular deposit.

Using K-Mine you can determine if a mining project is worth further investment and development.

Related Modules

K-MINE is a stand-alone application that covers most operational needs in the mining industry. Leveraging capabilities such as 3D modeling, resource estimation, and equipment management, K-MINE is widely used by companies of different sizes for open pit and underground mining. Over 5,000 surveyors, geologists, mining engineers, designers, and technicians leverage K-MINE modules and their solutions on a daily basis.
