Our online seminar is delivered over 4 consecutive half days (4 hours per day) in a live and interactive format by Gerald Whittle, CEO of Whittle Consulting. Gerald provides a detailed explanation of how Whittle Integrated Strategic Mine Planning helps mining businesses worldwide to significantly improve the economics and mine valuations of their projects and operations. Counterintuitive mining concepts such as Theory or Constraints and Activity Based Costing forms the foundation of the seminar, along with an explanation of how Whittle proprietary software, Prober-E, optimises both open pit mines and underground mines across all commodities.
16 - 19 November - suitable for the Americas (& Africa-Europe in the pm), with Spanish & Portuguese translation channels

What do delegates say about their seminar experience?
In our February/March 2021 seminar series, 100% of delegates commented that they would recommend the Whittle Integrated Strategic Mine Planning seminar to a colleague. Here is a sample of what they said:
“Challenged the textbook ways of thinking. Provided me with new knowledge on how to generate value in mine planning and modelling. Theory of Constraints was interesting.”
“A series of epiphanies, where are seemingly obvious when explained clearly, but not obvious when the industry is entrenched in a standardised way of thinking.”
“Very concise, straightforward and clear principles which can add a lot of value to a mining project. Also, didn’t claim to be a silver bullet but a tool to improve the understanding (and as a result the financials) of mining projects.”
“It was enlightening to see mining presented as a business and the use of examples to show how existing paradigms need to be changed.”
“Very good, great content, good stories to make the point. More mining people should understand what the game is actually all about. Well done Gerald!”
