CSA Global is proud to be a seminar partner of this year’s Money Mining and Sustainability Seminar in Johannesburg , South Africa and Brisbane, Australia between 19-20 and 26-27 March 2018 respectively.
Integrated Strategic Planning is now regarded as best practice in the mining industry. The 2 – day Money Mining & Sustainability Seminar comprehensively explains the philosophy and methodology behind Whittle Integrated Strategic Planning. It includes an explanation of the processes involved and the benefits derived from developing a Whittle Enterprise Optimisation model.
The seminar explains the 10 distinct mechanisms in a Whittle Enterprise Optimisation model including: pit/underground, phases, mine schedule, cut-off, stockpiles, blend, processing, product mix and specification, logistics and capital. When applied simultaneously these mechanisms produce extraordinary results. Important new techniques and concepts for the mining industry are also explored. These theories include Activity Based Costing (ABC) and Theory of Constraints (TOC). The end result is a powerful analytical approach to decision making across all aspects of a mining operation or project.
The seminar is frequently attended by senior mining executives, geologists, mining engineers, process engineers, metallurgists, logistics managers, department, divisional and project managers, institutional mining fund investors, financial analysts and project financiers.
Ideally senior managers across all business disciplines from the one company should attend together, as the seminar presents the benefits of cross-functional collaboration. Attendance is often the final step in deciding whether to embark an Enterprise Optimisation study, or the first step in doing it. In house seminars can be arranged upon request.
