Audits & Reviews are a Critical Component of a Mining Project's Success
Third-party audits and reviews are essential in discovering omissions and optimisations, making them one of RMS's most valuable services.
Pre-feasibility and feasibility study audits and reviews are every bit the adage that an "ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure".
With our team of operations specialists, process engineers, and design experts, we bring decades of experience and a fresh set of eyes to our client’s feasibility studies, data reports, technical tests, and infrastructure.
RMS’s audits have, at times, resulted in the need to re-engineer project sections, which ultimately produced technically superior designs, more efficient solutions, and preventing costly errors.
Manage Project Risks Before They Appear.
Our engineers have first-hand experience in commissioning complete process plants, paste backfill circuits, and underground distribution systems, including stope barricades. One of the primary benefits of commissioning audits, reviews, and on-site commissioning assistance is the ability to apply experience from previous situations, This often minimizes unknown risks and allows for the development of contingency plans to proactively manage risks before they emerge.
Brownfield optimisations are performed through site visits and offsite operational and design reviews. In some cases, the original backfill process from decades earlier, is not updated with existing tailings material properties, leading to production inefficiencies with significant OPEX increases. RMS is positioned to re-run laboratory test work, optimise the process parameters, and re-train staff to again achieve the strength and slump parameters required by the mining plan.
RMS is equipped to conduct brownfield audits through on-site inspection services as well as remote site analysis. Using either or both these approaches, RMS can get a comprehensive site overview by reviewing conditions, system components, and performance. Based on these analyses, RMS is then able to provide recommendations for system optimization or re-design as necessary.
