Our Projects > Kazakhstan: Existing Base Metal Mining Operation Expansion

Ghana: Large multi-phase gold mining operation

The hardy inhabitants of eastern Kazakhstan have much to contend with when it comes to the weather. Winter temperatures of -40°C and summer temperatures of over 30°C are not uncommon. Predictably, such a challenging environment is host to a wealth of mineral riches that has attracted international investors in recent years.

Lord Consulting Engineers were appointed as consulting electrical power engineers to a client assembled team that was examining the feasibility of acquiring and investing in an existing copper, zinc and lead underground mining operation in this region.

Our responsibilities included:

  • Technical appraisal of the electrical infrastructure of the existing operation
  • Assessment of the electrical utility supply situation and in particular, the early stages of private investment in the electrical energy market.
  • Estimating capital cost of electrical works necessary for the extended operation
  • Estimating electrical energy costs of the expanded operation
