Mine Planning & Operational Excellence

RESPEC’s commitment to our clients is to provide high-quality mine plans that meet their financial and production requirements and exceed their expectations by optimizing resource recovery while maximizing economic returns for clients. Through site visits and detailed discussions with mine management and operations personnel, our engineers can efficiently determine the strengths and weaknesses of an operation. Working closely with the mine management, all facets of operations are reviewed, considered, and analyzed to ensure that a practical, actionable improvement plan is developed. We serve clients with all types of surface and underground operations across the full spectrum of commodities around the world, from stone and aggregate to industrial minerals to base and precious metals.

Our core capabilities in mine development include a range of mine plans, mine design and layout, equipment selection, production sequencing, grade controls and optimization (costs and operational), strategic plans, business plans, and operational plans. Our team of experienced engineers and geoscientists includes experts in multiple planning software platforms that specialize in value creation for our clients. We appreciate the complexity and importance of geological impacts on creating a sound mining plan.
