The Mining Experience is a live podcast that invites professionals from the mining industry to discuss new technologies, address challenges, and share work experiences.
In this first episode of The Mining Experience, we will discuss the different challenges encountered during feasibility studies. A “Feasibility Study” is a project evaluation to assess a mining development economic viability. Many factors, such as infrastructure, mining methods, operating costs, typography, etc., are taken into consideration while investigating a feasibility study. The assessment is done through different stages of evaluation and the final decision evolves as more data in detail is collected.
We had the honor to invite:
Dr. Hani Mitri; A professor of Mining Engineering at McGill University. He has more than 30 years of experience in research and teaching in underground mining, rock mechanics, ground control, mine design, and feasibility studies. He has supervised to completion more than 60 Master’s and PhD students and published more than 200 papers. He is a licensed engineer in the province of Quebec since 1987.
Mr. Karl Fecteau; A father of two boys and a Electrical Engineering Graduate in 1999. Mr. Karl has always been working for start-ups in High-Tech / R&D. Currently, working as a CEO at Nemesis Intelligence, his team’s mission is to bring the underground mining industry into the High-Tech world. Mr. Karl’s philosophy consists of knowledge is power and time is money: We give you the knowledge to save time. With a passion in aviation and an airline pilot license, he has the personality of an entrepreneur with a goal to improve humanity.
Mr. Nick Vukovic; An engineer and director with mining, geological and geotechnical educational background. He has hands-on experience in finding and evaluating mining projects and taking them from exploration into production. He has a proven track record with mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in the precious and base metal sector. In addition, he has a lot of experience in large-scale open pit and underground hard rock mining, which includes development, shaft sinking, tunneling, operations and heavy construction projects in North America and on an international level.
