Project Spotlight

 

Open Pit

 

Newmont Mining Corporation

Phoenix Mine Pre-Feasibility Study

Nevada, United States

Challenge:  Newmont reopened a complex low grade copper-gold mine near Battle Mountain, Nevada.

Solution:  Golder developed a plan for new internal phases with access to three separate pits and optimized costs for Newmont’s Pre-Feasibility Study.  The mine is currently in operation.


Rio Novo Gold, Inc.

Technical Report and Audit

Guarantã Gold Project & Almas Gold Project

Challenge:  Rio Novo had an extremely aggressive timeframe to list the company stock on the Toronto Stock Exchange and needed resource and reserve studies on multiple properties.

Solution:  Golder was able to complete and issue updated NI 43-101 technical reports for the properties within six weeks of the start-up of the project.  Golder also provided additional support in the successful listing of Rio Novo on the Toronto exchange.  The technical reports completed by (Golder) Marston are publicly available on SEDAR.
