Our services

Mine Readiness, Asset Management, Cost Engineering


Not only is our ultimate goal to let your mining operation achieve efficiencies near or similar to autonomous mining, but to deliver this at a fraction of the cost associated with autonomy and should this be viable, pave the way to phase in autonomous solutions through cost savings realised.

Why our clients use our services

Mining resource management

In addition to the controls of mining and resources costs as well as tracking conformance to budget forecasts, the CMRS provides for the breaking down of equipment owning as well as operating costs to complex and simple levels. This on its own provides for considerable analysis and determination of resource utilisations inclusive of equipment maintenance and associated costs. Given the abovesaid capability of the CMRS to connect mining resources (manpower, equipment, maintenance components, materials, etc.) to strategic mine engineering provide for engineers and asset managers to be more connected than ever before. Like no other system on the market, equipment and maintenance component resource utilisation and operating cost databases can now directly be imported into CMRS and connected to mine plans and schedules for optimisation and implementation management control.

Already have a fleet management system?

In nine times out of ten operational review assignments we have proved that where state-of-the art FMS are installed and in use, may not necessarily imply that your mining operations are optimised. Notwithstanding the level of automation on your mine, certain elements of your operation will always be subject to human intervention, which invariable drives your entire FMS.

Business intelligence and asset management is what we do

Mobile equipment maintenance

Due to the lack of mine plan readiness and conformance control systems, it is not always easy to determine if production targets can be reached, let alone the impact of the mechanical availabilities of a couple of units within a fleet. In addition to analysing the impact on production targets, by way of resource analysis, our Connected Mining Resource System (CMRS) estimates spares, component, manpower, consumables, lubrication and fuel utilisation inclusive of their associated costs of any production schedule. The resultant effect of CMRS to identify equipment that will give cause to a loss of production and estimating utilisations and costs, can deliver projected savings of several millions of dollars and meeting production targets.

Monitor, analyse & improve mining processes from pit-to-plant-to-export

Independently track, analyse and improve real-time performance of material handling processes along the supply chain with immediate access to predictive analytics and actionable insights. We extract and analyse data, generate predictive diagnostic models and provide easy-to-understand and actionable reports that directly translate into operational efficiencies and bottom-line savings.

Mining contractor management

Some mining Clients due to project specific reasons may prefer contract mining over owner operator methods, of which in Tacmin’s experience, has and will continue to bring its own challenges. Given Tacmin’s independent project management approach during mining contractor management assignments, as we generally do, we focus on  optimal mining practices and our expertise are fully capable to support in every aspect of mining. From dispute and claims resolutions to mine re-engineering or asset and maintenance improvement, we treat and manage mining contractors as if they are the mine owners assets. Through adopting this approach we have time and again proved to our Clients that Lean construction principals can be applied throughout with guaranteed success and returns.

We apply Lean construction principals during contract mine management assignments

From Lean construction principles to integration of the Clients mine engineering and empowering of the owner's team to the extent that inefficiencies in every facet of contract mining are being addressed and eliminated. Including but not limited to contract mine management assignments, subject to the Clients requirements, are ongoing mineability reviews of mine plans, operational assessments, asset management and maintenance reviews and optimisation, innovative fleet management systems, contract administration, production performance and cost improvements – in every instance, our involvement gives cause to the Clients desired objectives.

In addition to the value add and due to improved efficiencies

the contractor's operation becomes more profitable
