Understanding Your Mineral Deposit

Understanding Your Mineral Deposit

Unlocking value and building resilience

On Thursday 31st January we will be participating in a Seminar organised by Olympus to share and discuss innovation in “Understanding Your Mineral Deposit” through the broad geometallurgial approach. The seminar will focus on mineral/waste characterisation to identify variability and allow the development of strategies to mitigate the associated risks. Companies that embrace the geometallurgical approach from an early exploration stage through to feasibility will benefit from increased NPV and shareholder value.

The seminar is free to attend and will be relevant for exploration, mining and investment companies all looking to better understand the potential, and value, of a given deposit. We hope the insights will provide information about value adding methodologies and cost-effective tools now available to more confidently evaluate a deposit, build resilience, and help companies think differently about the earlier stages of the mine value chain.

The seminar will be held at the Geological Society of London, Burlington House, Piccadilly on the afternoon of the 31st January 2019 and will be immediately followed by the London Mining Sundowner which we will be sponsoring.


Presentation abstracts will be available shortly.
