 What Is A Mining Feasibility Study?


Are your projects viable? Conducting a mining feasibility study is just a small part of understanding the capital investment lifecycle. Sourcing, developing and removing Australia’s natural resources is more than pulling rocks out of the ground – it requires in depth planning and assessment to ensure that the massive undertaking pays off, which is where the concept of a mining feasibility study comes into play. 

By definition, it is the analysis of all a project’s many factors, including economic, technical, legal and scheduling considerations – each of which can make or break a project’s likelihood of completion and success. 

The three primary pillars of a mining feasibility study include:

Scoping study

Pre-feasibility study

Definitive feasibility study

Do you have the people, process and culture to deliver on time, on budget and safely? 


The statistics that surround feasibility studies aren’t exactly positive. Published research shows that there are very few capital investments projects that meet the cost, time and production expectations defined in their feasibility studies.  

First and foremost, knowing exactly who to use to undertake the feasibility study is half the battle. While it’s not uncommon to opt for the very people who found the resource, a person with a multi-disciplinary background is usually better suited to a multi-disciplinary project. This is where the invaluable guidance of a specialised mining and resource sector adviser comes into play, to tie it all together.
