                       operating mines achieve their business goals                By finding the optimum combination of key decision
                       throughout their life cycles. AMC’s capabilities            parameters i.e. cut-offs, mining methods, production
                       can be delivered as stand-alone services, with              rates, sequencing, plant upgrades and other crucial inputs,

                                                                                   of detail suitable for mine planning that can be tailored
                       AMC maintains an extensive and up to date database          to project or client requirements e.g. optimisation of
                       of mining costs and productivities for surface and          life-of-mine development and production scheduling,
                       underground mines. Our benchmarking methodology             business wide strategic planning and staffing schedules.
                       focuses on developing a detailed understanding of the
                       drivers of cost and productivity. AMC has completed over    Mine Simulation
                       60 benchmarking studies world-wide.
                                                                                   AMC has developed a holistic mine-to-market simulation
