AMC helps multinational gold miner determine the future direction of its gold mine.
The Damang operation has benefited from AMC’s expertise for over 10 years, and we were very comfortable in selecting AMC to assist with evaluating Damang’s future.
AMC approached the work with a high level of proficiency and professionalism and provided innovative solutions that have enhanced the value of the operation. We have been particularly impressed with the output and timelines.
An open pit mine located in West Africa, has been in operation for 20 years, during which time it has produced in excess of 4 Moz of gold. AMC is engaged to evaluate the potential to extend the mine life through further major cutbacks to the main open pits.
The mine was at a decision point with all main pits reaching their current end of life.
We generated viable operations for successfully extending the mine’s life and optimizing its output.
As part of an intensive six-month period, we worked closely with onsite, regional, and corporate-level personnel to prepare:
- Option studies considering different-sized cutbacks.
- Strategic scheduling and financial modelling to determine the preferred mine design, mining sequence, and mining rate.
- Detailed mine designs.
- Detailed mining and processing schedules.
- Detailed mining cost estimation.
