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 2Determine the technical and economic viability of the project including a
more detailed assessment of the resource estimate, mining methods, infrastructure requirements, and environmental considerations
Pre/feasibility study 2Assess the reserves/resources of mineral materials

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

By using K-Mine you can evaluate whether 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. More than 5,000 surveyors, geologists, mining engineers, designers, and technicians utilize K-MINE modules and their solutions daily.

PFS/FS Services

We also provide consulting services for Pre-feasibility and
Feasibility Studies and many of our experts are leaders in their fields.

Initial Desk Study
  • Analyze geological data and previous research to assess the site’s potential for exploration and reserve growth.
  • Conduct audits of existing geological and historical data, including maps, reports, and other available information.
  • Develop a preliminary project description outlining the scope and objectives.
Mineral Resource Estimation
  • Evaluate the quantity and quality of minerals in the deposit.
  • Comply with international standards including CRIRSCO, JORC, NI 43-101, and PERC.
Pre-Feasibility Studies (PFS)
  • Evaluate the potential viability of the mining project.
  • Identify potential challenges and risks.
Feasibility Studies (FS)
  • Conduct a detailed study assessing technical and financial feasibility.
  • This includes resource estimation, mine planning, testing, and cost analysis.
Preliminary Engineering Design
  • Zone the open pit field to define mining areas.
  • Design the opening system and develop productivity schedules.
  • Develop road and infrastructure designs.
Financial Analysis
  • Create an economic model including capital and operating costs.
  • Plan the payback period and evaluate financial indicators such as NPV and IRR.
  • Assess procurement and construction planning.
Open Pit Mine Planning and Optimization
  • Determine optimal mining limits considering economic criteria.
  • Design the configuration of the open pit for maximum efficiency.
  • Develop pit phasing and scheduling to maximize NPV.
Underground Mine Planning and Optimization
  • Design efficient underground mine layouts and extraction sequences.
  • Optimize operations for safety, production rates, and costs.
Risk Assessment Evaluate and plan for technical, economic, environmental, and regulatory risks.
Environmental Assessment
  • Assess the environmental impacts and ensure compliance with regulations.
  • Develop strategies for minimizing environmental footprint.
Project Execution Plan
  • Develop a comprehensive plan for the implementation of the mining project.
  • Include detailed planning, scheduling, and resource allocation.
