Our engineers and geologists listen to you to determine your objectives, and then gather detailed information regarding parameters critical to the success of your mining venture. We evaluate your operations from multiple perspectives to identify your strengths, and the weaknesses that need to be addressed.
As needed, MM&A singularly or collectively evaluates several areas of a mining operation, including:
audit existing reports and documentation or complete detailed evaluations to accurately determine reserve quantities
tabulate and categorize mineral or coal quality to determine the markets in which your coal or mineral product can be sold
select the most technologically advanced methods and equipment based on site-specific attributes to cost-effectively extract reserves
Management and manpower
analyze reporting systems, report content and context, chain of command, and personnel to determine production bottlenecks or cost inefficiencies
Coal preparation plant design and optimization
maximize financial return from the reserve base
Mine plan assessment
account for mining hazards, such as identifiable poor roof conditions or severe geologic conditions, to succeed in today's competitive environment
analyze costs to determine the impact of productivity improvement or alternate operating scenarios
evaluate supply contracts to match with available coal reserves and production quality and achieve a balanced plan of low cost and contract compliance
MM&A also performs valuations for banks, financial groups, mining companies, and insurance companies. Our valuations are in accordance with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice, and where applicable, the Uniform Appraisal Standards for Federal Land Acquisition.
