Gold mining "GOLDSTRAT"
OPTIMISATION OF STRATEGIC PLANNING FOR DEEP LEVEL GOLD MINES
OF THE MODEL
To enable Management to generate MAXIMUM NPV plans for DEEP LEVEL GOLD MINING COMPLEXES
Main Features :- (*)Maximum Cash Flow / N.P.V. mine planning in variable time periods under the planner's control : Life of Mine, one/two/five/ten year planning; (*)Contingency Planning in cases of catastrophes (*)Expansion and contraction studies as a result of falling/rising goldprice and/or exchange rate (*)Techno-economic studies (*)De-bottlenecking (*)Answers the "where to mine" question based on deterministic optimisation. (*)"Stope to Goldbar" optimisation. (*)Takes into account the predeccessor/successor time-lag relationships of opening-up/development/stoping.
The approach offered by Linear, Mixed Integer, and Recursive Linear Programming techniques, is one of optimum solutions with associated techno-economic sensitivities, subject to the constraints applied. As such, this approach is considered to be the only method to exploit optimally all the resources at the disposal of a company, consequently, to empower that company to remain at the competitive edge of the industry in which it is involved.
