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.

Under the deal, Omnia Mining will produce gold from the O block, in the western portion of the Manica area in Mozambique.

The agreement will see Explorator receive monthly payments from the mining contractor based on the run-of-mine performance.

It is reported that the monthly payments will differ according to the monthly run-of-mine payment and a proportion of any increase in the gold price above a reference price of $1,250 per ounce.

“The overall effect will be to move more alluvials and shorten the time to about six years for total depletion of the western gravels.”

The contractor will begin construction of settling dams and processing from 12 February, and is committed to having a fully operational plant with a minimum throughput of 100t an hour by no later than 15 May.

Xtract executive chairman Colin Bird said: “The agreement with Omnia allows the O-block of the western area to be fed into Omnia’s sophisticated alluvial processing plant, which is situated adjacent thereto.

“The overall effect will be to move more alluvials and thus shorten the time to about six years for total depletion of the western gravels. We continue to make good progress in exploring further opportunities in the Manica area.”

According to the company, the agreement will run for a maximum of ten years, or end sooner if the alluvials are depleted.
