Cracow Whitepaper – Production Optimiser
LEADING AUSTRALIAN GOLD PRODUCER, EVOLUTION MINING, REDUCED DILUTION AT CRACOW OPERATION BY 62%
Evolution Mining was an early adopter of our Production Optimiser system in early 2018. During the first six months at Cracow, stopes drilled using the new Minnovare technology recorded average dilution of 11.7%. Stopes drilled using the existing process recorded 29.8% average dilution – an 18% point (62% net) reduction.
This whitepaper was co-authored with Evolution Mining. When applied to Cracow’s full FY17 performance data, an equivalent reduction in dilution would result in an additional AUD$8.2M ore recovered, with AUD$4.5M less spent on cost of dilution (haulage and processing).
