Preliminary Site Assessment and Inspection
Before important decisions can be made in relation to a mining site, our company is conducting a Preliminary Site Assessment and Inspection project that has the purpose to diligently assess and analyze the life and business resources available on the mining site in order to understand what is needed and wanted for living and mining activities in the future, as also the previous gold mining history.
Most important is to determine the existence of profitable gold bearing ores.
Following information is gathered and assessed in relation to the mining site:
The legality of the license, current situation in relation to the license, the ownership of the land, and any other legal issues;
Upon arrival to the mining site, we are making sure to have immediately the living resources for our team members, such as food, and when necessary accommodation, and some tools.
We are determining exact location of the mining land, we may use the GPS and verify the corners of the mining land. We are also to determine if any previous excavations and resources are located on the mining site or outside of the boundaries of the mining site.
We are searching for possible water sources for mining and living purposes. Water being most important factor for recovery of gold has the priorities. We may find solutions to bring water to the mining site or to tranport eventually ores to other places where it may be processed with purpose of recovery of gold.
Then we are reviewing the operational history and we verify any available access to ores and availability of gold in soil or in rocks.
We are also reviewing the living resources such as drinking water, availability of food and similar.
We review the communication resources on the mining site, radio call, the mobile networks.
We review all available business resources, the gold recovery plants, equipment, quality of gold, and any other business resources.
We assess the safety on the mining site.
We assess the nearest village or town in relation to its development, and what resources may it offer to us, such as technicians, hospital, food, timber, and similar.
We assess the possible mercury pollution on mining site and around.
We assess the possibilities for the accommodation for future activities on same mining sites.
We may inform the mining site holder about our findings and preliminary conclusions.
We analyze the information gathered and finalize the report which is usually done at our headquarters, and once done, we make conclusions and recommendations for the next step of the mining site development.
The mining site holder or principal or individual with power of attorney for the mining site holder, is to approve these actions relating to the mining site, in writing.
Profitable Gold Bearing Ores
In mining terminology it is enough to say “ores” as that alone would mean that ores are profitable.
As we often deal with businessmen rather than with mining engineers, we stress the fact that most important substance in gold mining is gold bearing ores, as that is why we are mining it.
Preliminary Site Inspection and Assessment determines if profitable gold bearing ores are now on the site, or there are some serious indications about it.
Indication is not an occurence of gold. Indication is not having few grams of gold produced every day.
Indication of profitable gold bearing ores could be when there are 200 shafts among which 80 shafts are profitable and where site inspection gives indication of the underground reef, its heights, widths, lengths and directions.
Pictures from past Preliminary Site Assessment and Inspection projects on mining lands
- The gold cyanidation plant during the Preliminary Site Assessment and Inspection
This series of images have been made during the first part of Preliminary Site Assessment and Inspection as devised by Mr. Jean Louis for the program Start Your Own Gold Mine that enables our clients to quickly start in gold mining business. Cyanidation tanks were assessed and found to be leaking fluids thus also leaking gold. A program have been envisioned on how to improve these gold cyanidation tanks so that full gold recovery may take place.
