Hawsons Iron Project
Iron ore project. Pit Optimization, pit design, scheduling, fleet calculation and mine OPEX and CAPEX to develop a Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS)
Pit phases design
OPEX & CAPEX
MiningSense elaborated the mining studies to feed a PFS led by GHD. By reviewing the different scenarios and optimizing the mine strategy, MiningsSense and its collaborators completed the pit optimization. After the design of the different phases, the mine schedule was developed including stockpiling.
IPCC (In-Pit Crushing and Conveying) was assessed as the transport option in comparison with trucking. Fleet equipment was calculated together with the mining rate and the associated costs to warrant a final production of 10 mt highest quality iron ore concentrate.
