M.PLAN´s focus is on specialty commodities – specialty minerals, rare metals and industrial minerals which are used in a wide range of high value applications. Drawing on the internationally recognized expertise of Micon International Limited and Dorfner Anzaplan GmbH, M.PLAN specifically fulfills the needs of the specialty commodity sector.
M.PLAN provides a full service package covering the spectrum of exploration, mineral resource and reserve estimation, mine design, process development and engineering, metallurgy, environmental assessment, market intelligence and economic analysis for seamless development of projects from preliminary economic assessment to pre-feasibility and feasibility studies. Reports are generated to meet the requirements of international securities regulations such as NI 43-101 and JORC. M.PLAN also undertakes due diligence assessment of specialty mineral projects and operations. Based on its cumulative years of experience an important aspect of M.PLAN’s service package is the company’s ability to apply its detailed knowledge of product specifications.
Industrial minerals are mined and processed for the value of their non-metallurgical and non-fuel properties. Typical examples include quartz, graphite, feldspar, fluorspar, diatomite, wollastonite, cristobalite and mica, but also clay minerals, phosphates, borates and many more.
There is a growing range of industrial minerals that offers both metallurgical and non-metallurgical values with strategic importance in rapidly developing industrial and commercial applications. Such high growth markets face the risk of short term supply interruption and exert competitive pressure on standard applications.
Rare metals are comprised of a wide range of metals including well known tungsten, silicon, niobium, molybdenum, lithium, cobalt, zirconium, titanium and rare earth metals but also less known gallium, germanium, rhenium, antimony, hafnium and many more.
M.PLAN is a new company designed to provide fully integrated technical consulting services to the specialty commodity sector. The qualifications of the M.PLAN team are firmly rooted in the experience of Dorfner Anzaplan GmbH and Micon International Limited, both of which are recognized internationally in their respective areas of business.
Leadership of M.Plan is provided jointly by senior management from Anzaplan and Micon.
