ON AN RCM MINING PROJECT TO IMPROVE PROFITABILITY
A CONSCIOUS ASSET CASE STUDY
Conscious Asset worked with a phosphate mine for maintenance and system standards.
After providing analyst and facilitator training we mentored a new facilitator through his first RCM analysis project on a “magnetic separator” system.
At the mine the ore body contained a high concentration of phosphate mixed with a large concentration of iron. Iron concentration wasn’t sufficient to be profitable but the phosphate could be processed and used as fertilizer (a higher margin product).
See how we worked with a phosphate mine to:
- Increase profits
- Water connection was cleaned up and commissioned
- Reduction in iron content means higher quality and lower shipping costs
