Proven Approaches to Drive Down Operational Costs and Increasing Efficiency of Mine Loading and Hauling Operations
1-2 August 2012
"The factors influencing our profitability in mining operations are moving to a new level of extremity."
Two months ago, the Center for Energy Sustainability and Economics has conducted a survey to over 4,000 respondents from the global mining industry who agreed that that the cost per ton of the entire mining, loading and hauling operation must be further optimised.
The factors influencing our profitability are moving to a new level of extremity. â€œMost companies base their plans on the assumption that their forecasts may vary by 5% to 10% next year, not that things will change by 50%,â€ says mining expert Phil Hopwood. But now our loading and hauling costs have reached the extremem range.
Regulatory uncertainties are eating up our profitability too. Indonesiaâ€™s plans to take a bigger slice of mining profits and will impose a 25% export tax on coal and base metals this year, jumping to 50 percent in 2013.
Last yearâ€™s summit brought the support of the Indonesian Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, Indonesian Mining Services Association, Indonesian Coal Mining Association and Heavy Equipment Manufacturer Association of Indonesia. This year, new case studies and presentations will highlight the following themes:
I. Achieving operational excellence
II. Implementing effective and efficient tyre management strategies
III. Developing competent haul road and equipment maintenance practices
IV. Maximizing haul equipment usage to counter shortages
V. Streamlining HSE and risk management strategies across haulage operations
VI. Executing effective operations through conveyor usages
VII. Managing haul trucks utilization and reliability
