Implementation ready mining business models: 10-15% improvement.

Little did we know how the flexibility in the business models and processes we have developed to serve our customers on remote mining projects across Africa daily, would become key to how flexible our business is to service the global mining industry. From over 1210 mining cost benchmark models we have developed for international Blue Chip mining companies, with project values fetching up to US$ 5 billion, we have:


●  simulated mine site conditions using the Clients’ geological and mine engineering data basis;

●  applied the above and benchmarked capable productions of equipment in use or required;

●  generated project life-cycle benchmark models, enabling us to analyse mine designs, plans, production profiles and mining costs;

●  supplied our Clients with implementation ready MRO life-cycle benchmark cost models, re-engineered production profiles and budget forecasts;
