Min­ing

Leverage technologies to optimise mining operations.

Against a backdrop of record commodity prices, the demands on the mining sector have never been greater. Rising energy costs, deeper ore mines, more complex ore bodies, social and geopolitical risks — the complexities faced by the players in this industry are multi-faceted. Mining companies remain under exceptional pressure to control costs, heighten efficiency, and improve safety performance.

With environmental, social, and governance (ESG) metrics becoming a mainstream consideration for the industry, mining companies are expected to take a proactive stance in fighting climate change and embedding ESG ideals into their businesses.

Technologies such as artificial intelligence, data science, and automation are also evolving rapidly, creating innovative solutions that can optimise operations. There’s an urgent need to adopt these technologies to drive innovation and create mines of the future, but mining companies face high costs and rocky implementation initiatives.

We work with mining companies to navigate this volatile environment by implementing successful changes to operations and building capabilities that are crucial for them to thrive and succeed.

Industry Expertise

Strat­e­gy and Oper­at­ing Model
How do I increase through­put by reduc­ing lost time and waste? How do I improve plant and process con­trol to improve recov­er­ies? These are the ques­tions we can help you answer. Our areas of exper­tise include design­ing enhanced man­age­ment con­trol sys­tems, organ­i­sa­tion­al align­ment, turn­around pro­grammes, risk assess­ment, mit­i­ga­tion and man­age­ment, process improve­ment, and CPI, to name a few.
Per­for­mance Management
Estab­lish oper­a­tional KPIs to mon­i­tor and improve busi­ness per­for­mance through visu­al per­for­mance dash­boards, and review mech­a­nisms tailor-made for main­te­nance and sup­ply chain oper­a­tions. Addi­tion­al­ly, we also work with you to estab­lish defined roles and respon­si­bil­i­ty state­ments such as RACI.
Capex Man­age­ment
We run pro­cure­ment spend­ing and diag­nos­tics to iden­ti­fy cost sav­ings on fixed assets across glob­al oper­a­tions. This includes sup­ply chain matu­ri­ty assess­ments (struc­ture, process, and sys­tems) to tar­get reduc­tions in the total cost of ownership.
Safe­ty
Lost Time Injuries (LTIs) and fatal­i­ties have con­se­quences beyond the imme­di­ate harm to indi­vid­u­als and loss of pro­duc­tion. Accord­ing to research, the root cause is often­times human error. There­fore, min­ing and met­als pro­duc­ers need to demon­strate sus­tain­able improve­ment in safe­ty KPIs or risk rep­u­ta­tion­al risk and share price down­grad­ing from ESG-sensitive investors. We can help you do that.
Dig­i­tal Transformation
Using the sys­tems you already own, we sig­nif­i­cant­ly improve mate­ri­als man­age­ment and increase ser­vice lev­els whilst reduc­ing work­ing cap­i­tal through inven­to­ry opti­mi­sa­tion. Our cross-functional skills in strate­gic sourc­ing, and ware­house and mate­ri­als man­age­ment through embed­ded ERP solu­tions will reduce work­ing cap­i­tal and asso­ci­at­ed oper­at­ing costs simul­ta­ne­ous­ly and sustainably.
