Mining Geology

The geological development of a defined resource doesn’t stop just because the initial exploration has been completed.


Sampling & Grade Control

Misclassification of ore, poor grade information, and errors in estimations can result in millions in lost revenue. The need for representative sampling procedures in open-pit mining is increasingly important in all mining industries. Proper grade control allows for precise mine planning and ensures ore and waste are reported correctly.


Due Diligence

One of the biggest risks to a project is not understanding the quality of the geological data and any associated geological risks. Mitigate those risks with an independent geological due diligence investigation.

Block Models

The culmination of all the geological and sampling data into a block model allows for grade estimations and distributions to be reported. Block models allow for resource reporting, mine design, and pit optimisation, and are the basis for most mining engineering processes.

Stockpile Control

Managing the stockpile and discard dump movement, loading, storage, and blending can be key to maximising ore sales revenue. Properly managed stockpiles allow for reconciliations and optimisation.

Mining Works Programme

Development, compilation, and submission of mining works programmes (MWP) in accordance with the requirements from the South African Department of Mineral Resources (DMR).

Resource Statements

Reporting mineral resources according to SAMREC, JORC, NI 43-101 reporting codes. Fit-for-purpose resource and mineralisation statements and estimations for small-scale miners.

Mine Surveys

Mine surveys, drone surveys (photogrammetry and LIDAR), coordinate system conversions, mine reconciliations, and stockpile volumetrics.

Prospecting & Mining Rights

The development, preparation, compilation, and submission of prospecting and mining right applications. MINROM can assist with applications for South African as well as SADC countries.
