MINING INDUSTRY OVERVIEW
Since mining started hundreds of years ago – the challenge has always been how to balance the continuous demand for resources versus environmental impact. While we do not have all of the answers, we do have some that address key issues of Cost, Safety, and Environment.
The construction of the road network of a mining operation represents a major capital expenditure and as such is an asset and should be protected like one.
This is what we do – Protect the Mine’s asset.
Our holistic and solutions-driven approach does not simply treat the “symptoms” of the problems – but the cause of the problems. The initial investment of the Haul and Access Road network can be protected with the integration of a Sealed Surface in the initial specification.
An existing Road Network can be upgraded and sealed.
The above “Road improvement “ will yield a number of benefits that include:
- Significantly reduced required Road Maintenance that directly reduces costs in a number of ways including Reduction in capital expenditure on equipment and Reduced Diesel consumption.
- An improved road network will Increase Safety, Increase Work Cycle Efficiency, Reduce Liabilities, and provide an overall Decrease in Cost per tonne
While at the same time reducing a mining operation’s impact on the environment by drastically reducing its water consumption and decreasing CO2 emissions.
We stand behind such claims and would welcome the opportunity to prove the magnitude of savings that we provide through our Cost-Benefit Analysis Consulting – Contact us today for the first step in a sustainable way forward.
Our solutions for Mining also extend to Underground and Mine Tailings Structures
While the initial objective may be Airborne Particle Mitigation…
we guarantee that we will provide this PLUS so much more including:
Improved Roads Increased Efficiency in Work Cycles Improved Safety & Decreased Liabilities Detailed Cost & Benefit Analysis Environmental Analysis of Water Use and CO2 reduction
