The Services we render are as follows:​

Usually the mineral reserves are the sole revenue basis of a mining venture. Accurate resource and reserve statements are of utmost importance for correct investment decisions and mine planning. Thus, we to externally explore the chosen area by constructing and analyzing a 3-Dimentional digital deposit model for geological appraisals. Once an accurate estimation of potential mineral resources is created, we provide you with reports, in compliance with international codes (JORC/ NI 43-101/ SAMREC/ PERC), on resources and reviews of reserves. We extend our skills and capacities in the areas of our exploration management by deploying the following;

  • Digital Mapping and GIS Applications
  • Prospectively Modeling of AOI
  • 3D geological models and interpretations
  • Geological and 2d/3d Geophysical Mapping
  • Sampling and drilling programmes management
  • Selection of suitable drillers and assay laboratories

Challion provides experts who are trained in mining engineering to provide solutions in various areas of opencast mine design, planning and optimization by using mine planning software packages, including GEMCOM Minex and Land Development. Our experience and expertise in mine design, planning and optimization enables us to provide services in:

  • Conceptual and detailed mine design
  • Individual opencast mine planning
  • Net-present-value pit optimization
  • Choice of mining method and haulage method
  • Production and equipment schedule optimization
  • Run-of-mine tonnage and grade scheduling
  • Life-of-mine stockpile, waste dump and tailings dam design
  • Equipment, staff and material requirements determination

The environment is a major topic of today’s industrial development, “Safe environment is a healthy environment”.  Challion will focus on any environmental aspect of your mine operations and develop solutions that satisfy the operator in managing the relevant authorities and the public. Our background is in managing the Nigeria environmental regulations in relation to your mine requirements.

We provide solutions on the processes of examining the anticipated environmental effects of a proposed project – from consideration of environmental aspects at design stage, through any of the following services:

  • Determination of applicable environmental regulations for the project

  • Filing of environmental applications with relevant authorities

  • Set up of Environmental Impact Statements (EIS),

  • Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA),

  • Environmental Management Plans (EMP)

  • Environmental Protection and Rehabilitation Plan (EPRP)

  • Mine Closure Plan and Model (MCPM)

  • Planning, coordination and performance of public environmental hearings

We provide solutions to an independent firm looking to undergo some form of mining exploration and will need to work within the legislative guidelines of the Federal Government of Nigeria. As such you will need to file for any of  these; Water Use Permits (WUP) Reconnaissance Permits (RP) Exploration license EL, Small Scale Mining Lease SSML and Mining Lease (ML), also known as a tenements, which provides you permission to perform certain activities on the land in which you are interested.

Challion provides assistance in developing integrated solutions through a full range of specialist services that support every stage of mining and can improve the performance of your mining asset worldwide.
