Industrial Mathematics for the Mining Industry

We have designed, built, deployed and now support bespoke mathematical optimisation tools for the mining industry that:

  • Spans the planning spectrum from real time continuously running optimisation, to optimisation of operations for the coming days, weeks and months, to optimising annual operating plans, to strategic NPV optimisation stretching to the life of the mine
  • Covers all aspects of the mining life cycle from establishment, to footprint design, to short term scheduling, to bulk materials handling, to ship berthing and loading, to blending and marketing
  • Covers open pit, underground and strip mining operations for four of the five largest mining companies in the world
  • Optimise the entire supply chain from the pit to the port to the market
  • Integrate the operations of multiple independent mines
  • Have increased productivity by 10%, profit by 15% and NPV by 14%

We often take on very challenging, often unsolved problems sometimes requiring a mixture of optimisation, simulation and advanced data analysis, and have an extensive list of very happy customers stretching from operations centre control staff up to GMs.
