Moving Your Mining Project Forward

The quality of the management of a Feasibility Study can greatly influence the ultimate success, timing, and cost of the project. A well run study process identifies important issues (both risks and opportunities) and prioritises activities accordingly. The correct prioritisation can greatly cut down on the timeline and budget whilst identifying the project strategy with the best chance of success. Through many years of completing and managing Feasibility Studies, Snowden brings a wealth of knowledge to your project.

Our cases

We are focused on the economic outcomes for the mining study and how best to achieve those at the least cost. Our experience in completing these studies over many years has provided us with significant learnings that are passed on to our clients through improved outcomes or shorter timeframes. We are able to put together multi-disciplinary teams covering the whole mining value chain. This enables us to break down the silos that often inhibit the value of mining projects during exploration and planning. We test assumptions from a global, rather than local perspective.
