As the operation matures, falling grades, increasing geotechnical risk and aging equipment offer significant challenges along with continuing environmental management and community issues. Development of an appropriate strategic planning process included:
- addressing expected waste rock performance impacts
- assessment of numerous capital options and waste management solutions
- selection of final pit to minimise exposure to external macro-economic volatility
- accounting for complex blending requirements cognisant of both economic and environmental effects
Quantified Strategies worked closely with the client to not only provide strategic planning but also to undertake significant knowledge transfer and training of staff. Training of internal resources results in a more sustainable workflow, improved site engagement and clearer understanding of expectations and outcomes.
Quantified Strategies developed a number of proprietary tools and methodologies to deliver these positive results. These methodologies are underpinned by sound financial theory, as well as a statistical and mathematical basis, the process for which can be clearly explained to decision makers.
