The research conducted through this programme will focus on:
- Safer mining operations through the implementation of workplace transformation;
- Efficient mining operations by improving the skill level of the workforce;
- The shift in volume to “quality volume” production e.g. less or no dilution by providing customised mechanised solutions;
- Maximising “quality volume” production by implementing innovative solutions to increase machine availability and utilisation; and
- Financially sound returns with an increase in the reserve statement.
