Open Pit Mining

 Open Pit Mining


HASS professionals have strong operational and technical backgrounds and have gained substantial experience in mines across multiple commodities, methods, continents and countries.  This ensures that our solutions and advice are not only practical and workable, but take account of appropriate geotechnical, hydrogeological, economic and environmental considerations.


HASS’s services cover scoping, pre-feasibility and feasibility studies and economic evaluations, detailed mine design and layouts, production scheduling and equipment selection, operating cost estimation and capital expenditure estimation.  We also have key people pro-actively reviewing improved mining methods outside traditional approaches.


With the growing need to bring projects into production more quickly and on budget, we can accelerate the process for mining companies by supplying consultants to supplement the client’s own technical resources to achieve the desired outcomes within the project timeframe.  Our personnel ensure appropriate decisions to guide project development are made at the earliest opportunity, and are committed to reviewing what aspects of project advancement can be done in parallel to minimise the risk of rework.
