Project Scope

JDS was retained by Capstone Mining Corp. to produce two National Instrument 43-101 compliant Preliminary Economic Assessment reports as well as an NI 43-101 Prefeasibility Study. Each study and report enhanced the economics of the project and advanced its development. JDS accountabilities included underground mine design and planning, infrastructure engineering, design and planning, process plant design, metallurgical testing, operating and capital cost estimation and overall study preparation and management. JDS delivered the studies on budget and under schedule while improving the economic returns on the 2,500 tonne per day $200M capital project.
