GreenGold offers support services designed to reduce risk, reduce cost and maximize returns.
GreenGold provides a range of specialist services to support the project stages: from Feasibility Study – design and construct – to commissioning, and operations support. These services provide a superior in-house capability in areas that are not adequately catered for outside, but are essential for project development.
Green Gold provides an enhanced approach to project development that includes an operations advisory function at the feasibility stage to ensure the incorporation of best practice operational concepts.
There’s often a gap between the Feasibility Study and the reality of production which can result in severe repercussions in cost and time. Green Gold’s operational experience is provided through the Advisory Group and they provide the link between the FS and the commissioning/operation stage.
The Advisory Group not only provides the link between the FS and operations. More importantly, they contribute a significant cost benefit by assisting with the implementation of owner managed functions such as: mining, drilling, and assay laboratory. These cost saving measures feed back into the FS to provide real economic benefits, resulting in a more robust FS.
In addition to the owner management concept, the Advisory Group can provide assistance with all other areas of starting a mining operation, including: helping to implement best-practice in mining, grade control, processing, HSE, ERP, accounting, IT, legal and marketing.
Commercial metallurgical laboratories are rarely connected to the requirements of the design engineer. They lack the design and operational experience to understand the implications of the testwork. Green Gold offers in-house laboratory services aimed at supporting the design requirements laid out by the engineer. Green Gold metallurgists and process engineers closely follow the testwork programs and adapt them to ongoing results.
The results are always relevant to the development of the flow sheet.
The overall cost of drilling is generally underestimated when calculating the long-term running expenses of mineral projects. Operational departments such as exploration, grade control and blasting work as separate entities without a clear understanding of the combined cost of drilling, which is usually the major cost component.
Contractors are appointed because they are perceived as having the expertise, equipment and service capacity. InDrill does not substitute the contractor but rather provides advisory services, helping you develop in-house drilling capabilities. We advise on equipment and rig maintenance. We provide ongoing operator training and organize spare parts and consumables for diamond, RC and Blast-hole rigs.
Green Gold has proven that establishing in-house drilling is not only more economic in the long term, reducing drilling costs by more than 50%. It also leads to more control, better efficiency and higher-quality results.
