    In all operations, there needs to be a cohesiveness among technical disciplines. Marrying engineering and geology is no exception.

    Geologists should be able to give Engineers:

    1) A high-level understanding of the layout of the orebody;
    2) An overview the various block models and the limitations of each;
    3) Insight into how best to optimize the orebody.

    Knowing when to ask for help is beneficial for the success of the mine and the industry.
