Consulting Services for the Mining industry

JKG Mining Solutions has recently offered a full EPC contract service (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) with the first project being the supply of a tin recovery plant to Khingan Resources. This plant is located in the Autonomous Jewish Republic in the far east of Russia and will recover tin from tailings with a nominal capacity of 3000 tons per day. Our consulting services include:
Mine Planning
Complete mine planning services are offered for both open pit and underground mines, using a variety of software packages. Resource estimation and modelling of ore deposits can be contracted out.
Process Development
Test work is managed by JKG Mining Solutions and is contracted out using one or both of two laboratories located in British Columbia, Canada.
Plant Engineering
Plant engineering is carried out by JKG staff and where necessary is contracted to specialists in various fields e.g. electrical engineering. A sister company, JAT Metconsult Ltd. has been offering these services for many years and is owned by the same management.
Equipment Supply
Equipment supply is helped by years of dealing with North American and European suppliers but significant savings can be offered on certain equipment by direct supply from Chinese manufacturers. To ensure only high-quality equipment is supplied, all equipment from China is supplied through Big Rock Consulting, a company with long experience in sourcing from Chinese manufacturers.
