Industrial Psychology of Mine and Mill Managers

  • Same company… but different goals.

  • Different approaches… but same ore!

A Game of Thrones…

Mine vs mill manager
Mine vs managementMill Manager


Mine manager
Mine Manager management

  • “I have accomplished my tonnage goals”

  • “I have to look after MY costs and MY budget”

  • “Since I cannot cut on fuel costs, I will cut on explosives costs”


Mill manager
Mill management Manager

  • “The grade you sent is lower than declared”

  • “You are sending boulders that plug my crusher”

  • “My steel and kwt/h costs are high and throughput is low ”

CEO management

“You supply your planned tonnes & grade”

“You give me the monthly metal production”

“And do not forget: keep your costs low, guys…!”

Opportunities
Opportunities management

A well managed fragmentation process has significant overall cost-saving potential:

  • Increasing resource recovery.

  • Reducing dilution (increase the grade delivered to the mill).

  • Reducing power consumption at the mill.

  • Increasing mill throughput.

  • Reducing metal losses (fines).

  • Increasing OEE at the crushing plant.

    This new approach should be incorporated to the Corporate’s Culture.


Fragmentation department
Fragmentation Department management

A key area to achieve Corporate goals.

Objectives:

  • To reduce the size of the ore from a bulk in situ mass to fit the bottleneck at the mill.

  • To manage efficiently the overall fragmentation of ore:

    • As a single process

    • Under the same budget

    • Under the same management from the Mine to the Process Plant (flotation, LX or others).

  • To increase the valuable metal recovery
