Founded in 2006 by 2016 Canadian hall of fame inductee Louis Gignac, G Mining Services is a specialized mining consultancy firm based in Canada. We are an entrepreneurial minded and multidisciplinary company that offers a wide range of services to both underground and open pit mining projects from greenfield to operating mines. Our firm possesses the rare capabilities to develop a resource from the exploration phase, to development, into construction, commissioning and then operations. We integrate with the client’s team to self-perform project development, hence to build fit-for-purpose and cost effectively. Our multilingual team can operate in English, French and Spanish speaking countries.
We take pride in our track record of building mines very safely, on budget and on schedule.
In 2008-2010, we led the construction of the Essakane Mine in Burkina Faso for IAMGOLD Corporation, which is now one of their flagship mines. We then proceeded to build the Merian Mine in Suriname for Newmont Mining at a cost of USD$738 M which was USD$178 M under budget, one month ahead of schedule and featuring an exceptional safety record. The Merian Mine now gives Newmont a foothold in the highly prospective Guyana Shield region.
In late 2016, we optimized the feasibility study for the Fruta del Norte Project for Lundin Gold in Ecuador which is a highly prospective mining district. In July 2017, after receiving full project approval, we successfully led the construction of this project. First gold production was reached in November 2019 and commercial production was achieved in February 2020. We are currently leading the expansion of the process plant for this project.
G Mining performs many different types of studies and mandates on behalf of numerous mining companies ranging from junior to large top-tier mining corporations.
