How to Implement Lean Principles in the Mining Industry

Faced with fluctuating demand, cyclical pricing and a decrease in the profitability of the mining industry, operating an efficient and streamlined business is critical to any mining operation. Thus, despite its inherent complexities mining firms have been integrating the lean principles of the manufacturing industry into their own operations.

Mineral processing - Wikipedia

Dewatering is an important process in mineral processing. The purpose of dewatering is to remove water absorbed by the particles which increases the pulp density. This is done for a number of reasons, specifically, to enable ore handling and concentrates to be transported easily, allow further processing to occur and to dispose of the gangue

Mining engineering - Wikipedia

The foremost stage of mining starts with the process of finding and exploration of the mineral deposit. In the initial process of mineral exploration, however, the role of geologists and surveyors is prominent in the pre-feasibility study of the future mining operation. Mineral exploration and estimation of reserve through various prospecting

Value Stream Mapping - Lean

Value Stream Mapping generally starts with the macro level. For a manufacturing process, this is the 4 8 major operations in the process from receiving the raw material to shipping the final product. Value Stream Mapping can also be done at lower levels. For example, the Value Steam Map for a mining operation may have separate maps and

Differences Between Value Stream Mapping Process

Value stream mapping (VSM) is a graphical tool originally used in the auto industry to streamline processes called "lean manufacturing." Process mapping tracks and analyzes the steps in a process, looks at the sequence of steps and eliminates those not needed or reorders steps for efficiency.

The Mining Process Waihi Gold

A slurry of ground ore, water and a weak cyanide solution is fed into large steel leach tanks where the gold and silver are dissolved. Following this leaching process the slurry passes through six adsorption tanks containing carbon granules which adsorb the gold and silver. This process removes 93% of the gold and 70% of the silver.

What is value stream mapping? - Definition from

Value stream maps have their roots in the Toyota lean production system. In this context, value can be thought of as anything the customer is willing to pay for and any process that does not provide value is called waste. In keeping with Toyota's kaizen philosophy, value stream mapping emphasizes kaizen, also known as continuous improvement.
