Infrastructure, in particular transport infrastructure, is becoming a dominant component of mine development CapEx and OpEx
Infrastructure therefore needs at least as much consideration as the ore geology, mine planning and processing
This means that both buyers and sellers must focus on seeking improvements to all sections of the supply chain. This key area is one where efficiency developments and sustainable cost reduction could produce long lasting and significant improvements. The workshop will cover:
Key factors to look at when determining mining logistics solutions
Cost comparisons among rail, truck, conveyors and barging
Impact of specific project characteristics
Short term and long term ROI
