MINE DESIGN, PLANNING & SCHEDULING
Our engineers have operation and technical background in underground mine design. We employ Vulcan 3D and Deswik Design software to design and plan mine design options that will be the best use of resources and maximize economics. Our detailed mine design layouts and production scheduling include cutting edge development designs that minimize development footage combined with well thought out infrastructure, and appropriate production mining methods based on years of experience at a variety of mines. We have completed a number of mine design and feasibility studies for underground and surface mines in the Western United States.
Major Mine Study — Southeast Alaska
