As large scale, high grade deposits become increasingly scarce, exploration campaigns have had to pivot from defining outcropping surface structures to searching for deposits at depth. The capital intensity and complex geological conditions forces an increased focus on the mining methodology selection and ongoing operational performance of the asset.
Discussions during the night will involve the geological and geotechnical selection criteria for sub-level open stoping, variations from concept plan to reality, associated productivity expectations and the technical challenges which exist during the execution planning process.
