MINE PLANNING & SCHEDULING

 

Mine planning provides solutions through the application of all current and relevant information. Accurate life of mine planning is essential to the operation and the future economic success of your mining project. Mining Plus uses the optimal mining software systems combined with a practical and innovative approach to:​

Conduct surface and underground mine optimisations.

Engineer detailed surface and underground mine designs.

Develop detailed mine schedules

Demonstrate robust economics of mining projects.

These steps produce mine designs and schedules that are easily transferable to onsite mine planning and short-term scheduling teams. Mining Plus prides itself on schedules that require minimum changes when progressing from early stage studies to operational implementation. Processes and tools have been specifically designed to convey schedule information to mine operation teams to ensure the short-term objectives are aligned with the long-term strategic plan.

OPERATIONS IMPROVEMENT

Our practical experience enables Mining Plus to add value and facilitate the delivery of your team’s goals through the analysis and optimisation of your open pit or underground operation.

 

This is achieved by focusing on a rigorous process combined with innovative and practical thinking: 

Operation audits to identify areas for improvement such as fleet management, production performance, technical integration, safety & environment, and strategic business alignment to operations

Determining the status of the current workflow and processes

Measuring performance to plan and identifying areas of under and over achievement

Implementing business and productivity improvement solutions

Developing ongoing control measures to maintain peak operational performance
