Our skilled geoscientists and business development staff have vast experience in project generation, utilising a comprehensive exploration strategy and mineral exploration techniques aimed at generating new (greenfield) or existing (brownfield) projects.
Sahara’s focus is on delivering quality projects, which can be transformed into strong and profitable deals for clients. Our approach greatly minimises project risks at all costs, no matter the mineral type.
Resource estimates play a key role in the value appraisal of mining projects and attracting investors and media interest. At Sahara, we provide pinpoint estimates to clients for reporting.
With our extensive knowledge and strengths in structural geology, ore deposit geology, geostatistical theory and database management, our consultants utilise international best practice techniques such as mineralisation models to increase the confidence levels of mineral estimates for reporting.

MINE OPTIMISATION & MANAGEMENT
The economic viability of the modern-day mine is dependent on careful planning and management. Sahara utilises a wide array of comprehensive, integrated techniques with technical field support and reliable logistics to solve key problems at different stages of the mining value chain, right from exploration to decommissioning.
Our mine optimisation and management services enable you to maintain long term profitability and mitigate risks at all costs no matter the mineral type or mining method (open-pit or underground). Our combined approach of disciplines of geology, mining and metallurgy delivers a high-quality project – safely, on schedule, and within budget.
FINANCIAL MODELS & PROJECT VALUATION
Financial modelling plays an important role in project evaluation. Our specialists utilise a wide array of approaches to accurately estimate the value of projects, assets and properties, and its economic feasibility.
Our intensive cash flow modelling enables you to address the timeliness of project debt service payments for lenders and the adequacy of returns for investors.
We offer technical financial models to enable you to better understand the value of the projects and optimise planning throughout the mine cycle.
PFS & DFS
Pre-Feasibility Studies (PFS) and Definitive Feasibility Studies (DFS) are a crucial stage in evaluating the viability of a project, its logistics, and whether the mineral resource can be mined economically.
At Sahara, we advise clients on the economic viability of their projects with an approach that provides a basis for detailed design and construction as well as financing the next investment stages.
