Mine Design & Mine Planning

DMT is a competent and reliable partner for your mining operation, due to many years of experience in mine design and mine planning all over the world. We cover virtually all mining methods, both surface mining and underground mining, for a great variety of commodities. Every year, we complete a multitude of mine design assignments as part of scoping, prefeasibility and feasibility studies. In addition to that, we also offer detailed mine design post feasibility study and planning for optimising mining processes and operations.

Mine Planning - The DMT Way

Every successful mining project starts with a plan. We assist you in setting up a strategic plan to manage your costs and resources and define your objectives for your mining operation. Our mining engineers support you with locating and evaluating promising deposits. DMT’s approach always focuses on understanding the complete mining context and characteristics of the mineral deposit. This allows us to recognise and address the specific constraints of each mining project. 

We help you make to make the most effective use of your mine capital, short-term, medium-term and long-term. Our engineers produce practical mine designs and achievable schedules to allow for easy execution and operation.

Design Work & Process Optimisation Services

Not only does DMT provide services to locate and assess ore deposits, but our vast experience in the mining industry also enables us to counsel you on the most suitable mining method for each project. We offer support and advice all along the mine planning process, spanning mining method selection and design to geotechnics, equipment design selection and logistics and plant design. But also, if you want to optimise your mining processes, we develop a plan and design new processes for you to find the optimal solution.

Thanks to our extensive experience from mine planning and mining engineering to mine decommissioning, our designs are innovative, cost effective and environmentally responsible. A mine plan by DMT allows you to maximise the economic benefit of your project and mining operation.
