Why Teamwork is Key to Successful Mine Planning and Design

Our Role in Successful Mine Planning and Design

Our mission at Marshall Miller & Associates is to provide a valuable, quality service to our clients – something that begins the moment we are hired.  We have the expertise necessary to participate in every aspect of a mining enterprise – from conducting feasibility studies, resource evaluation, developing schedules, forecasting costs, obtaining permits and complying with regulatory agencies.  MM&A is on your team every step of the way.

 

Financing and Capital Acquisition

As a member of your team, Marshall Miller & Associates deploys mining experts, many with more than 25 years of operational experience within the mining industry to conduct reasonableness reviews of existing cost models.  When necessary, MM&A completes detailed, independent financial models, incorporating buildups for capex schedules and opex.  Models range from high-level P&L based proforma models to fully functional discounted cash flow models to determine the value of a project.  MM&A performs valuations for banks, financial groups, mining companies, and insurance companies.

 

Permitting and Compliance

At Marshall Miller & Associates, we offer complete surface and underground mine permitting services to the coal, aggregate, and mineral development industries.  Compliance projects are supervised by highly qualified MM&A professionals with expert knowledge in the permitting of surface mines, underground mines, refuse disposal facilities, and processing facilities.  

 

Engineering and Design

MM&A mining engineers are industry professionals who deliver superior technical plans and designs that improve safety, reduce costs, and increase efficiencies in mining industries throughout the world.  Our senior mining engineers commonly have graduate degrees from major universities and are registered professional engineers in major mining states around the country.  Our team works with your team to deliver mine designs and mine plans, rock mechanics analyses, mine ventilation design, mine seal inspections, economic assessments and plant optimization, all informed by the latest science, leading edge technologies and industry best practices.   

 

Geology and Hydrogeology

Geological based water impacts represent a key factor in mine planning and design.  To address these concerns, working side by side with our clients as a team, MM&A brings hydrogeologists to evaluate the interactions between proposed and active mining operations with aquifers and surface lakes, rivers, streams.  Our geologists stand ready to assist you in predicting the geologic hazards that are likely impact the mining process.  Our geologists collaborate with our engineers to develop controls which mitigate the risks associated with mining hazards.
