    I travel to many customer sites around the world and I find the most rewarding experiences are always typified by a team of people from our business and our customers operations, talking about the challenges presented and finding solutions. These challenges can range from a specific ore body that is proving difficult to liberate through to logistics issues in transporting the ROM or finished products but whatever the challenge, when we work together in open collaboration we find cost competitive and efficient solutions that weren’t previously evident or obvious.

    Sometimes this means rolling up my sleeves and getting involved in the operational side of things to see first-hand exactly what’s going on and other times its about bringing knowledge from other similar operations in other parts of the world to the table and sharing ideas that find the right solution that works for our customer in their local environment.

    Whatever the challenge, I really enjoy collaborating with our teams and our customer teams. If you have a problem you’d like to talk about please contact me or write a comment below.

    This is the key focus of our teams at the start of all projects and enables us to create a solid basis for delivery of our services and products.

    We measure our success by how well our customers believe we have delivered the project outcomes. Typically we find our customers have a range of criteria for defining success ranging from financial and safety targets to innovation and ‘smarts’ in delivering efficient solutions. This is particularly evident in the new era where we are finding mining operations managers looking for process improvements to increase profitability as well as innovative solutions to convert tails into revenue… solutions to these challenges need innovative thinking which we bring from our many years of experience onsite in customer operations.

    I am always keen to talk with mining operations managers looking to improve process efficiencies so please contact me or write a comment below.
