One of Hatch’s core capabilities is geological resource evaluation, including data assessment, geostatistics, computerised geological modeling and resource estimation. Our Mineral Resource Evaluation Unit (MREU) has in-house expertise.
MREU services include the following:
Investigation of the accuracy and precision of analytical data and the identification and correction of bias between different sets of data.
3D computer models (wireframes and cellular models) of mineral deposits using advanced mining software including Datamine, Vulcan, Q Pit and Surpac.
The MREU uses statistical studies to evaluate the effectiveness of the geological interpretation in separating domains of like geology/grade characteristics.
Hatch conducts geo-statistical studies on a variety.
The MREU resource geologists ensure their work is fully compliant with the JORC code.
To satisfy the requirements of various mining codes, a variety of expertise is required to evaluate deposits.
The MREU provide the following types of studies:
- Bankable feasibility studies
- Due diligence studies
- Technical reviews of modeling methods
- Technical reviews of grade control and sampling strategies
