Mining engineering in the design and operation stages

Technical studies and mining optimization

Our expertise ranges from mining engineering during the design stage to operating both open-pit and underground mines. We use sophisticated tools and proven methods that improve optimization and work planning. We always take the particular characteristics of the deposit and the operational context of the mine into consideration.

Our work often involves:

  • Design of open-pit mines
  • Design of underground mines
  • Pit optimization
  • Optimization of underground mining projects
  • 3D mine planning
  • Mining planning and sequencing
  • Analysis of mining projects
  • Mining reconciliation
  • Optimization of the job site and mining sequence
  • Estimation of capital and operating costs
  • Cash flow estimation and financial analysis
  • Design of underground infrastructure

When it comes to mine optimization, we also provide specific services to support mining operations. These technical services aim at solving specific or occasional problems.

  • Opportunity studies on material handling
  • Opportunity studies on mining methods
  • Opportunity studies on electrical equipment and automation
  • Geotechnical surveys
  • Rock mechanics and sizing of openings
  • Mine ventilation
  • Mining audits

What sets InnovExplo apart

Our broad range of services, both in terms of technical studies and mine optimization, allows us to apply our experience and expertise to numerous types of mining projects.


No matter what stage your project is at, we can help by producing the necessary technical studies and optimizing your mining work.

Our main objective is to reconcile efficiency requirements with health, safety, and environmental imperatives.
