Subcontract mining is a form of out sourcing whereby a project owner finding an outside contractor to conduct all or a portion of mine development and operations. In providing contract mining services, TSS draws upon its broad range of disciplines:
- Engineering and estimating staff assesses mine able reserves based on geological reserve estimates provided by the owner
- Assesses mine feasibility and designs underground operations, including mine shafts, ore and waste handling systems, mine dewatering systems, backfill systems and ventilation systems
- Selecting and procuring equipment.
- Determining manpower requirements. Once the feasibility and design of an underground mine has been established, our company is able to develop and operate the mine with its equipment, specialized personnel and management systems.
Where it assumes responsibility for mine operation, TSS hires staff, develops production budgets and schedules, produces reports, maintains regulatory permits and filings, manages operating staff and assumes overall responsibility for safety and loss control.
