Mining Mega Trends and Their Impact to your Organisation's Resilience

Numerous mega trends are impacting the mining industry, making an effective resilience program more important than ever to ensure that operations continue as intended. From ESG considerations, through to the use of advanced technologies such as Internet of Things devices, AI, and digital twins, as well as workplace safety, volatility in commodity markets, and the spectre of Covid-19 still looming. Each mega trend has a different impact that needs managing correctly, with a one-size-fits-all approach insufficient. This white paper identifies the mega trends affecting mining businesses, while exploring the opportunities, risks, and implications for operational resilience, with expert insight from Dynamiq on the best practices and approaches to improve business outcomes.

According to the company, nearly 8,570oz of alluvial gold has been obtained from the mine as of 31 August, marking a 95% rise in production when compared with the entire 2015 mining season.

Of the total alluvial gold produced from Little Squaw during this season, 3,010oz was produced in August alone.

Figures released by the company show that approximately 5,540oz of alluvial gold was obtained from the upper half of Little Squaw Creek outside the area of mineralised material previously delineated by Goldrich.

"Nearly $26m has been invested in developing the mine so far."

Goldrich said that production for the year continued until 21 September and final production numbers for the season will be released after all smelter settlement documents have been received.

To date, the company has conducted nearly 15,000ft of drilling on the upper half of the Little Squaw Creek placer project.

Nearly $26m has been invested in developing the mine so far.

Goldrich also outlined 10.5 million cubic yards of mineralised material, at an average head grade of 0.025oz of gold per cubic yard, for an estimated total of approximately 250,000 contained ounces. The mineralised material at Chandalar is not a mineral reserve as defined in SEC Industry Guide 7, according to the company.
