How mining companies enable Business Improvement (BI) via mining optimisation with Whittle Consulting

 

As the leading mining consultants, Whittle Consulting has identified the top 15 Objectives and Outcomes that drive our clients to implement mining optimisation generally, and Whittle Integrated Strategic Mine Planning, in particular. One of these objectives is to enable Business Improvement (BI) within their mining project or operation. Let’s explore this objective in detail.

13. Enable Business Improvement (BI)
Objectives:
  • Reduce costs
  • Increase productivity and efficiency
  • Manage variation

Outcomes:

Whittle Integrated Strategic Mine Planning provides a holistic view of the system. Without this, well-meant localised cost/productivity/efficiency improvement initiatives may be less relevant, or even counterproductive.

Uncontrolled performance variation must be minimised – especially in the primary system bottleneck of the mine. However, inherent ore body variation can be regarded as an opportunity to be exploited, not a problem to be avoided. Whittle Integrated Strategic Mine Planning coordinates the operating policies across the system to positively respond to the variety of characteristics throughout the orebody. This approach is suitable for both open-pit mines and underground mines. The result is enhanced mine planning, resulting in mining optimisation and increased mine valuation.
