Following years of lackluster performance, the Mining sector is preparing to rebound in light of a market upswing. Positioning to capitalize on a window of higher commodity prices, savvy mining operations are focusing on operational readiness that will allow them to make the most of this opportunity.

Physical Asset Optimization is the centerpiece with priority focus on maintenance and reliability, organizational effectiveness and operations management systems. Subsequently, Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), optimizing the overall value stream in the mine and in the mill, is a high priority.

At Myrtle Consulting Group, our holistic approach spans the entire value chain including support functions that identify areas requiring improvement with potential to deliver step change in operational value-add. Building an in-depth Value Stream Map helps us identify areas of opportunity and develop a road map to liberate shareholder value. Our experience spans the entire range of mines: from surface open pit to surface oil sands to underground mines.

At Myrtle Consulting Group, we add value by supporting our clients’ business performance improvements throughout the life of the mine. Our experienced consultants have helped our mining clients deliver step change improvements in mining operations, maintenance and reliability.
