Feasibility studies

Tacmin Madini is one of a select few with the in-depth knowledge of all aspects of open-pit mining that takes feasibility studies to implementation and operation. For decades, we have witnessed and experienced the disconnect between the feasibility to operation stages of open-pit mines. Aforesaid disconnect can now be avoided by assigning Tacmin Madini who closes the gap between feasibility studies and mining operations.

Benchmark studies

Tacmin benchmark studies are sought after and have been applied on numerous large open-pit mines across Africa comprising of:

●  The mining Client’s geology and mine engineering as base.

●  Simulating the mining conditions using 3D modelling and Project Management software.

●  Determination of equipment and manpower requirements.

●  Re-engineering, re-scheduling and revision of production profiles and budget forecasts.

Trade-off studies

Trade-off studies between contractor and owner operating mining methods carried out by Tacmin Madini contain considerable value add information which is not easily obtained from our competitors. This can primarily be contributed to the fact that our principal core expertise was previously employed by construction and contract mining companies and equip over extensive knowledge pertaining to the estimation of contract mining costs from first principals.

Experienced Construction Managers (CMs) and seasoned inspectors can help with the vetting process by reviewing mine engineering, mine designs and schedules, tender enquiries contracts agreements, measurement and payment terms to determine if there are built-in problems and flaws that may impede construction or factors that may cause impacts to stakeholders in terms of time, cost or quality.
