Life of Mine (LOM) refers to the time span from exploration up to when the ore reserves are extracted. All made possible through the employment of available capital. The mineral resource model based on drilling and sampling programs establishes the investment platform for a mine proposition and subsequent development. In this haystack of data, the search is on for the "needle of truth”. Confident financing in this day and age is achieved through information life cycle control.
The EPCM (Engineering, Procurement, and Construction Management) development phase requires the tools for managing the engineering design to construction phases of the projects. Furthermore, in order to achieve the mine and plant design objectives, reliable control of throughput, grade and plant utilisation is required whilst meeting safety and environmental imperatives. Always supported by laboratory sample analysis for exploration, mining, production and invoicing.
