Systematised Mine Planning Process

RPM uses a standard systematic “Mine Planning System” for all mining studies; whether conceptual, preliminary, detailed feasibility studies or operational plans. The process is illustrated on the RPM Planning System diagram on the left.

The approach of using the Mine Planning System is not only that it is a proven system for conducting studies, it is also an excellent checklist to ensure all elements of project development have been adequately addressed. The system works whether the study is conceptual or detailed, a new project or an operating mine, underground or open cut. The only differences is the amount of time spent and the level of detail produced for each “spoke” or task of the Planning Wheel and the technical differences between underground and open cut. Note that the process is iterative and sometimes involves numerous circuits around the wheel to arrive at a completed study.



RPMGlobal’s Mining Project Services deliver mining studies of all levels to brownfield and greenfield projects. Through these studies, our expert advisory teams can assist your operation to improve capital and operating cost structures, identify productivity opportunities early in project designidentify methods to lower energy and options to reduce disturbance. Improving your processes create value as the project matures through its project development cycle
