The Mining sector distinguishes two basic activities: mine operations and mining support. Cica Group’s consultants have assisted clients across a range of operations and support activities in the Mining sector, including strategic planning, technical, operation, and procurement services.
The Mining sector engages in extracting naturally occurring mineral solids, such as coal and ores; liquid minerals, such as crude petroleum; and gases, such as natural gas. The term mining is used in the broad sense to include underground or open cut mining; dredging; quarrying; well operations or evaporation pans; recovery from ore dumps or tailings as well as benefication activities (i.e. preparing, including crushing, screening, washing and flotation) and other preparation work customarily performed at the mine site, or as a part of mining activity.
The Mining sector distinguishes two basic activities: mine operations and mining support.
Mine operations includes enterprises operating mines, quarries, or oil and gas wells on their own account, or for others on a contract or fee basis, as well as mining sites under development.
Mining support activities include units that perform mining services on a contract or fee basis, and exploration (except geophysical surveying).
Cica Group’s consultants have serviced clients across a range of activities broadly described above. The most recent of these was the ITS feasibility study for ITS options for Rio Tinto’s haul road on the Cape York Peninsula.
