Resource Evaluation:


  • Historical database creation and determination of valid points of observation


  • Resource assessment and coal quality evaluations (per seam and per product)

                          Evaluation of raw and clean coal quality as well as washability studies.


  • Determination of data ‘gaps’ and recommendation for future work


  • Development of testing protocols and analytical flowsheets


  • Design of exploration coal quality testing programs



 Trillium Geoscience maintains a strong relationship with carbonization and coal testing laboratories in Canada.



Drillcore Coal Quality program management:


  • Definition of the project timeline


  • Laboratory tender management


  • Laboratory management (continuous consultation with laboratory about sample results and progress through flowsheet)


  • Development of Standard Operating Procedures (data capture, coal quality laboratory instructions, chain of command documentation, results – report and data base formats)


  • Tracking and monitoring of analytical progress


  • Budget management (actual vs quoted comparisons, detailed budget tracking down to the  cent)


  • Validation of laboratory analysis results


  • Analysis and interpretation of results


  • Progress reports to clients including timeline and budget updates



Product evaluation and specification:


  • Coal Quality valid points of observation are used to evaluate possible products


  • Coal quality trends are delineated on a per seam basis

​​

  • Coal quality trends are married with the mine plan to determine coal products to be released during the life of mine
