Modelling Ecological Cost in Strategic Mine Planning: Solution in Stages

Solid particulate emissions from blasting, greenhouse gases from engines and electricity generation, soil loss, desertification, altered rivers, damaged land, poisoned waters, injured communities, fines, fees and changing regulations have costs. Deciding which costs to include and how within a Strategic Mine Plan depends on strategic questions and the right modelling tools. To incorporate ecological costs into a […]

Benefits of Including Environmental Costs into Strategic Mine Planning: WHY?

Countless reports chronicle mining’s lackluster pace of innovation, and the industry offers plenty of explanations, but the truth is that poor planning and inefficient operations pummel bottom lines as much as rising costs, volatile markets, diminishing resources, and tightening regulations.  Lessons of Resiliency It’s remarkable that ecological costs typically are not included in conventional Strategic […]

Benefits of Including Environmental Costs into Strategic Mine Planning: Optimized Green NPV

People, Profits and Planet Conventional Strategic Mine Planning produces multiple scenarios to maximize a project’s economic value and reliability as measured by Net Present Value (NPV). Green NPV incorporates environmental costs. By doing so, companies can develop efficient projects, at minimal costs, that are environmentally and socially sustainable.  If climate change is real and mining […]

The Benefits of Including Environmental Costs into Strategic Mine Planning : Introduction

The first article, Conventional vs Green NPV, looks at a recent test case and theoretical study demonstrating the value of optimized “Green NPV” planning for both mining companies and local communities. The study shows that SMPs incorporating broad environmental costs actually lead to reduced costs over the life of the mine while generating social and ecological […]

Transitioning to battery electric vehicles in mining

By Kevin West, Senior Client Executive, Dassault Systèmes The global mining industry is under increasing pressure to reduce its environmental impact and carbon footprint. As part of this effort, leading global mining companies are considering transitioning from traditional diesel-based vehicles to battery electric vehicles (BEVs). BEVs offer several benefits over diesel-powered vehicles including reduced emissions […]
