  • Desktop Mine EvaluationNi Project, Western Australia

    Piran Mining was commissioned to conduct a desktop open pit mine evaluation on several deposits. The purpose of the study was to determine whether the deposits could be mined and the product sold economically using conventional open pit mining methods and the clients nickel treatment process.

  • Evaluation of Tenders for the Development and Production of a Underground ProjectOngoing since Dec 2011 - Au Project, D.R.C

    Piran Mining was engaged to undertake the underground mining tender process which included; defining the scope of works; creating a Request for Tender document for a five-year mining contract; arranging visits for interested parties to the client's project site; dealing with contractor clarifications and ultimately evaluationof the recieved tenders.

  • Fatal Flaw Study, for SLCZn Project, Queensland, Australia

  • Feasibility Study Ni Project, Western Australia

    Piran Mining was commissioned to undertake a Feasibility Study for an Underground Nickel Project. The focus of the study was primarily within four key areas Hydro-geology, Metallurgy, Geotechnical and Mining Method.

  • Feasibility Study Ni Project, Western Australia

    Piran Mining was engaged to undertake a Feasibility Study for an Open Pit Nickel Project.

  • Final Design of Underground ProjectCu-Au Project, Finland.

    Following a sucessful completion of initial work Piran Mining was engaged to submit a 2nd Stage proposal to complete the detailed update of the mine design, schedule in relation to a copper - gold project located in Finland. The scope of the 2nd stage proposal was to undertake a detailed mine optimisation, design and scheduling of the mineable stopes based on updated Cu-Au concentrate gross revenue model.

  • Geotechnical and Mining AssessmentWestern Australia

    Geotechnical and Mining Assessment - Western Australia

  • Main Underground Haulage Level Design & Operating Philosophy AssessmentAu Project, D.R.C

    Piran Mining was engaged to clearly present an updated assessment of the main haulage level requirements and justify the preferred haulage system to be installed and operated on the main haulage level.

  • Mine Development and Production TenderAu Project, D.R.C

  • Mine Engineering Site Technical SupportAu Project, PNG

    Piran Mining was engaged to provide technical support to the site. The objective was to provide pragmatic on site support to the mining technical team relating to ventilation, mining method assessment and mine design.

  • Mine Ventilation ReviewCu Project, Queensland, Australia.

    Piran Mining was engaged to undertake a ventilation review of a copper mine in North Queensland.

  • Mining Concept StudyAu Project, Western Australia

    Piran Mining was engaged to undertake an underground mining scoping study below the existing open pit of a deposit located in Western Australia. Following a review with the client a new larger proposed final pit design was provided and the underground mining opportunity was re-evaluated against a smaller underground resource.

  • Mining Concept StudyAu Project, Western Australia

    Piran Mining was engaged to undertake a conceptual underground mine design and schedule for a deposit, approximately 100km south of Laverton in Western Australia. The client intended to extend an existing open pit that was mined until 2004. The study reviewed the potential for an underground operation below the planned pit extension. The mine design focused on the higher grade zones of the deposit which were previously indentified by earlier work undertaken by Piran Mining. A final draft report and detailed mine design was created in Mine 2-4D software as part of this study.

  • Mining Method AssessmentNi Project, Brazil

    Piran mining was engaged to undertake an underground mining evqaluation of a large low grade project, located in Brazil.

  • Mining Method AssessmentCu Project, Queensland, Australia

    In combination with geotechnical consultants Piran Mining conducted a reassessment of an advanced mine plan for an underground Cu deposit.

  • Mining ProposalNi-Cu Project, Western Australia

    Piran Mining was engaged to evaluate the underground potential to re-open a Ni-Cu deposit, previously mined in the 1970’s. 

  • Narrow Vein Mining ConceptAu Project, D.R.C

    Piran Mining was engaged to assess the mineability of a narrow lode within the client's complex. This involved providing detail on a pragmatic approach to development of the selected ore lode, stopping method, materials handling requirements, ventilation control and ground control.

  • Open Pit and Underground Mining ReviewWestern Australia

    Piran Mining was engaged to conduct a series of open pit optimisations and conceptual designs on the client's mineral resource.

  • Ore Reserve (JORC) and NI43-101 ComplianceNi Project, Canada

    Piran Mining reviewed and updated the Ore Reserve statement as required by Canadian NI 43-101.

  • Pre Feasibility StudyPoly-metalic Project, Manitoba, Canada

    Piran Mining was engaged to provide independent advice to client on PFS for development of an open pit poly-metallic deposit.

  • Preliminary Mining AssessmentAu Project, Mali

    Piran Mining was commissioned by the client to undertake a Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS) on a project, located in Mali, West Africa. As part of the preliminary analysis for the PFS an underground mining assessment was conducted. The purpose of undertaking this work was to provide guidance on the appropriate mining method on which the underground operation could be costed and hence designed.

  • Redesign of Underground ProjectCu-Au Project, Finland

    Piran Mining was engaged to undertake a redesign of a Underground Project. The objective of the re design work was to focus on providing a higher grade (%Cu) ore stream, reduced production output, less waste development and define an alternative lower cost backfill philosophy, i.e. from hydraulic fill to cemented rock fill (CFR)

  • Scoping StudyAu Project, Western Europe

    Piran Mining was commissioned to undertake a Scoping Study for a narrow vein, high grade gold deposit, located within a national park. This was looked at on behalf of the client as a potential acquisition.

  • Scoping StudyNi Project, Western Australia

    Piran Mining was engaged to undertake a scoping study on an underground and open pit nickel deposit in Western Australia.

  • Underground Mining Feasibility StudyAu Project, D.R.C

  • Mining Concept StudyAu Project, Western Australia

    Piran Mining was engaged to undertake an underground mining scoping study below the existing open pit of a deposit located in Western Australia. Following a review with the client a new larger proposed final pit design was provided and the underground mining opportunity was re-evaluated against a smaller underground resource.
