Deswik and RWE form Continuous Mass Mining Partnership
BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA – October 3, 2013. Deswik is pleased to announce the signing of a cooperation agreement with RWE Power International, RE GmbH (RWEPI – part of the RWE Group), focusing on enabling long term growth in the overall application of continuous mass mining (CMM) techniques. This partnership brings to industry:
- Increased availability and capability of expert consultancy services worldwide, especially to the Australian market.
- Exclusive development of fit for purpose mine planning tools for analysis and planning of IPCC and BWE mining systems, including hybrid operations using combinations of CMM, truck and shovel, dragline, dozer and surface miner fleets.
Mr Neil Tyson (Business Development Manager – Deswik) notes: “RWEPI are the world’s foremost independent experts in continuous mass mining techniques – they are backed-up by RWE’s high capacity mining operations, where more material is moved annually on conveyors than anywhere else worldwide. The key benefit of our partnership is rapid generation of whole-of-mine schedules and value models that include mass mining techniques as well as conventional methods.”
“This combination of rapid scenario analysis with leading expertise in mass mining system planning, design, and operation provides a new way of analyzing the most valuable total mine configurations, and mitigating principal risks.”
“The benefits of our partnership are already flowing to the wider industry as well – we are launching the first generation of commercially available mine planning tools for CMM applications, at the In-Pit Crushing and Conveying 2013 conference in October, and invite all those with an interest in CMM applications to visit our stall, and see the progress our partnership with RWEPI has made.”
