WHITTLE CONSULTING CASE STUDIES – PANAUST, INCA DE ORO

 

The best way to explain the benefits of the Whittle Integrated Strategic Mine Planning approach is to look at examples of our project work. Since 1999, Whittle Consulting has a proven track record in mining optimisation and mine planning with many of the largest mining companies around the world, undertaken across all commodities and in all continents.

Whittle Enterprise Optimisation studies have consistently proven to significantly enhance the economics of mining projects and operations. The full effects of a Whittle Optimisation can be extraordinary. Whittle Consulting regularly achieves NPV increases from 5%-35%, and in many cases substantially more. These improvements to mine valuation occur even when other conventional mine optimisation techniques have already been applied. The PanAust, Inca De Oro project is an excellent example of the benefits we provide to our clients.

PANAUST, INCA DE ORO- GOLD & COPPER - CHILE

Whittle Consulting conducted a Whittle Enterprise Optimisation (EO) study of the Inca de Oro project in Chile. The specific objective of the study was to increase NPV and mine valuation. Options around plant sizing and expansion timing, capital staging, scheduling, grind size selection and blasting intensity were evaluated. The Whittle EO study produced an 80.8% overall increase in pre-tax NPV, above the PanAust best business case. Impressively, the NPV increase was 116.8% for an expanded case, including the Carmen deposit.
