Multi-discipline Studies

A preliminary feasibility (pre-feasibility) study is used in due diligence work, determining whether to proceed with a detailed feasibility study to determine areas within the project that require more attention. Preliminary feasibility studies are done by factoring known unit costs and by estimating gross dimensions or quantities once conceptual or preliminary engineering and mine design has been completed. Preliminary feasibility studies are completed within FGA by a group of multi-disciplined technical individuals to achieve an accuracy within 20-30%.

Detailed (“Bankable”) feasibility studies are the most detailed and will determine definitively whether to proceed with the project. Once completed, the detailed feasibility study will enable the client to use the document/s as the basis for capital appropriation, and will provide the budget figures for the project. FGA’s detailed feasibility studies require a significant amount of formal engineering work and are accurate to within 10-15% 

Risk management is the identification, assessment, and prioritization of risks (as defined in ISO 31000), followed by the coordinated and economical application of resources to minimize, monitor, and control the probability and/or impact of unfortunate events or to maximize the realization of opportunities. Risk management’s objective is to assure uncertainty does not deflect the endeavor from the business goals.

FGA’s goal is to help clients to achieve “risk efficiency”, i.e. a state in which all of the technical and non-technical issues facing an enterprise have been identified, analyzed and mitigated to acceptable levels.
