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.

The company will acquire full interest in 13 mining concessions in three separate blocks with a combined surface area of 250km², including multiple artisanal gold mines.

The area also includes a fully permitted ore processing plant, which is nearing completion.

As agreed, Orea Mining is expected to complete a due diligence process within 90 days, following which, the corresponding definitive agreement will be signed.

If executed, the acquisition will be carried out in two stages.

Orea president and CEO Rock Lefrancois said: “After evaluating numerous opportunities in 2020, Orea is delivering on its promise to add a quality gold project to its portfolio, in line with its responsible mining approach.

“As our Montagne d’Or Gold Project in French Guiana has entered mine permitting, this new acquisition within the emerging Northern Andean copper-gold province will be the driver for exciting development and further growth in 2021.”

The mining concessions are located within the northern San Lucas mountain range, northeast of the Colombian Central Cordillera.

Several small-scale near-surface artisanal underground mines are documented over the area and surrounding regions.

Lefrancois added: “The acquisition of this large land package offers excellent exposure for the discovery of epithermal and porphyry gold-copper deposits for the implementation of industrial-scale mining in the region and almost immediate cash flow from the processing plant.”
