Mining Mega Trends and Their Impact to your Organisation's Resilience

Numerous mega trends are impacting the mining industry, making an effective resilience program more important than ever to ensure that operations continue as intended. From ESG considerations, through to the use of advanced technologies such as Internet of Things devices, AI, and digital twins, as well as workplace safety, volatility in commodity markets, and the spectre of Covid-19 still looming. Each mega trend has a different impact that needs managing correctly, with a one-size-fits-all approach insufficient. This white paper identifies the mega trends affecting mining businesses, while exploring the opportunities, risks, and implications for operational resilience, with expert insight from Dynamiq on the best practices and approaches to improve business outcomes.

The operational restart was followed by the company’s negotiations with the open-pit mining contractor Orkun Group and former open-pit employees.

Mining operations restarted at Youga on 15 June, with processing operations recommencing on 16 June.

During the operation suspension period at Youga, Avesoro’s engineering team completed the electrical, mechanical and maintenance works in and around the process plant.

Avesoro CEO Serhan Umurhan said: “I am pleased to report that operations at Youga have now recommenced following the successful resolution of negotiations between the Orkun Group and our former open-pit mining employees.

“My ongoing focus remains to minimise the impact of the temporary production stoppage at Youga, whilst successfully delivering the remaining transition to contractor mining operations at both Youga and New Liberty.

“We reaffirm our revised 2019 production guidance of 180,000oz to 200,000oz of gold, whilst assessing a number of project optimisation options, including ore sorting and heap leach scenarios at both New Liberty and Youga, with aims to further improve the economics of both projects.”

In February 2016, Avesoro acquired Youga Gold Mine from Endeavour Mining for $25.3m.

Avesoro Resources is a gold producer and developer, as well as operates two gold mines across West Africa.

Avesoro and its subsidiaries have three operating mines.
