Exploiting and assembling
The mining process starts from the discovery of the ore body to the extraction of minerals and finally the return of the state of the ground closest to the natural one with certain steps. The first is ore body detection, which is conducted through exploration for the search and subsequent identification of the size, location and value of the ore body. This provides data to assess resource reserves to determine the size and grade of the ore. This assessment is to study the pre-feasibility and determine the economics of the ore. The next step is a feasibility study to assess the financial viability of the investment, technical and investment risks of the project. This is where the mining company decides to develop the mine or abandon the project. This includes mine planning to assess recoverable ore, availability, and affordability for profitability, engineering, plant and infrastructure costs. , financial and equity requirements and mine analyzes as proposed from the excavation to completion. When the analysis identifies a recoverable mine, the development of the new mine starts and construction of the auxiliary works and processing plant. Operate the mine to recover the ore started and continue the project when the mining company is still profitable (still mineral). Once all the ore is recovered, landfill work will be undertaken to enable the land of the mine to be used for other purposes in the future.
