Temporary Works is the collective term used to describe the engineering solutions needed for major engineering projects to enable the construction, building or transport of components and modules.

Whilst most project management and design efforts go into the project itself, many projects fail to realise the importance of clever, cost effective and resourceful temporary works solutions required for project...

We’ve all seen those improvement projects that look out of place and not aligned with the company direction While it might not be immediately obvious why they lack appeal, on closer inspection it becomes apparent that the project appears like a random set of events that’s been dropped into one work area and then expanded to the rest of factory. Adding a bad project can decrease the overall improvements within the business.

So, how do you ensure your improvement...

West Africa is a region relatively unexplored by Australian METS companies, with a smaller percentage of exporters targeting the market compared to established trade routes in South East Asia, North America and South America. However, there are a number of opportunities offered by West Africa, which can be serviced by Australian companies if they take a strategic approach to entering the market.  

In particular, Ghana offers an exceptional opportunity...

Trucks are one of the biggest productivity influencers on most mine sites around the world.

Austmine caught up with Ross Grayson, Managing Director of Transcale, to get his observations and advice on how this can best be managed. 

Maintenance costs and efficiency...

The lack of new prospective mineral discoveries and decreased investment in mining exploration has been well documented recently and continues to be a challenge that threatens the long-term prosperity of the mining industry. This issue is of such concern for Australia, an economy that has long relied on exporting minerals overseas to grow and develop, that the federal government recently confirmed a $100 million tax incentive for...

Drilling

Often the first budget item to be cut in times of austerity is the exploration drilling. We will not go into the wisdom or consequences of this decision, but rather look at a means to optimize the money available for on-going drilling. Most geologists who have had to do drillhole layouts will have come up with any number of tools or process automations through scripts or macros that help them design a reasonable drill plan in an acceptable time frame....

If you have structural assets located in a marine environment it’s important to adopt good coastal asset management to minimise corrosion. Once these structures start to show signs of wear and tear safety is compromised and repairs can become costly.
 
Industrial port cities, such as Newcastle on the Eastern seaboard of Australia, are continuously subject to severe coastal weather. Assets located...

As we delve into our lean journey and begin to develop the maturity of a continuous improvement business, the people issues come up pretty quickly. How we identify the skills needed for our standard tasks and how we train our people up in these skills becomes critical as we develop processes and standard ways of working to optimise our efficiencies and workflow. Effectively using a skills matrix is key to developing your people to meet these new challenges. Here we’ll look at what a...

The resource industry is at a turning point with regard to technology and innovation. Companies need to decide if they are going to sit on the fence or become active in unlocking greater value through innovation. The difference in performance between those prepared to embrace new disruptive technology and those who are adopting a “wait and see” approach is not significant right now. In five years it will be, and in ten years the difference will be so noteworthy that...

The majority of mine sites today utilise a mixed fleet in their operations; acquiring machines that best suit their needs at different stages of the mining process. 

As companies look towards bringing automation and information gathering into the forefront of their operations; it is important they recognise there are alternatives to replacing big-ticket commodities such as mobile machines in order to do so.

“Retrofitting fleets with...
