Bridging the logjam from exploration to production

The average exploration time for a discovery is 12 years. In this interactive webinar on 3rd September, our expert panel will discuss how mining companies can speed up the process.

Aug 09, 2019

A gold mine discovery made between 1950 -59 would have an 85% chance of becoming a mine. Today that figure is just 23%.

It is becoming progressively more difficult, and slower, to convert a discovery into a mine.  It is readily accepted that transition from exploration company to producer is one of the greatest risks of failure in a mine’s lifecycle, especially with so many projects being of non-investment grade as a consequence of Basel 3.
