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 project, which is based on the latest and environmentally friendly technologies, will involve the construction of a new metals and mining facility at the Stoilensky mining and beneficiation plant.

It includes the development of several production stages and mastering a new product, hot briquetted iron, for NLMK Group.

NLMK Group CEO Grigory Fedorishin said: “Hot briquetted iron is currently in demand both in Russia and on the global market. Using this product in making steel cuts CO₂ emissions in half versus traditional technologies.

“The project marks the beginning of NLMK Group’s planning process for its new strategic development stage, Strategy 2030.

“High-tech integrated digital production with a low carbon and climate footprint is set to reinforce the company’s competitive advantages.”

As part of the project, the existing open-pit mine will also be expanded to increase iron ore output from the existing 43 million tonnes (Mt) to 67Mtpa.

New beneficiation capacities are also planned for a total of 10Mt of concentrate.

The project will also cover the construction of a pelletising plant with a 9Mt capacity and a 2.5Mt HBI shop.

The latest technologies to be employed during construction will ensure a reduction in the environmental impact of production.

They include gas purification systems, a closed-loop water system, reuse of waste, conveyor transport in the open-pit mine, among others.

The project is set to create up to 1,300 new jobs and its implementation is planned for 2024-2027, with commissioning scheduled for 2027-2028.
