It takes courage to engage an ‘outsider’ to audit your team.
It requires being vulnerable and making your work an open book. But if you’re on the same improvement journey as I am and you want to ‘find a better way’, then I can help you by carrying out a 6-step audit of your mining engineering team or mine planning team.
(If you want an indication as to my approach to mine planning, download and read the free copy of my ebook “Crimes Against Mine Planning”)
At whatever stage of an operation, mine planning is COMPLEX.
But in building a better mine plan, we often neglect the importance of building a better mine planning process for ongoing improvement. Despite our ready access to data and hardware and software capabilities, we have fallen short when it comes to mine planning teams, as a whole, applying continuous improvement at their mine site.
I will work with your team to change the culture to one of continuous improvement and get the ball rolling to achieve the changes required.
A mine plan is only as good as its implementation and how it is communicated to others.
Producing a quality mine plan is essential but challenging. Without the right training, your team will be producing ineffective and inadequate mine plans, at great cost to the mine site. Even the biggest mining companies often lack the resources required for effective training in this area.
I can work with you to develop a customised mine planning training course that is designed to help your engineers avoid common pitfalls and produce high-quality plans that will allow effective operation of your mine site.
Mining is a complex and expensive business, but it doesn't have to be.
I've worked with over 50 mines in the past 30 years and I provide mining engineering services that help you get more value out of your mine while saving time and money.
I offer a wide range of consulting services that stem from my significant experience so feel free to contact me with a query as to whether I can help you.
