|What:||“Short Interval Control in Today’s Underground Mine: A Case Study”|
|When:||Tuesday, September 25, 2012, 10:15am PDT|
Applying Short Interval Control (SIC) in underground mining operations stems from the need for operations to be more efficient with shift time and the use of assets. Chelopech Mine in Bulgaria is aiming to double production and achieve a 44 percent improvement in unit cost, a task that requires processes and systems to be redefined and shift time to be better managed. This case study looks at how Dundee Precious Metals Inc. developed a new approach to manage shift tasks to achieve production targets while improving asset utilization. Overcoming prior communication barriers in underground mines provides the opportunity to manage activities and tasks as well as identify any delays or interruptions during the shift and take immediate action. This positions data collected during a shift as less of a historical reflection of past events and more of a current-state view to support work management.
