Bougainville crushing plant was a bottleneck and major improvement opportunity. Malcolm Lees presentation reviews the work done to improve overall operational efficiency in this video:

It includes:

  • Bougainville crushing operations summary
  • Background
  • Why? - Economics
  • Maximising KWH
  • Increasing utilization
  • Improving crusher maintenance
    • Example - large jobs
    • Example - small frequent jobs
    • Secondary screen maintenance
  • Maximizing the KWH secondary crushers
  • Preparing for expansion
  • Workforce
  • Beyond work

The presentation is worth viewing and reflecting on. Most of the discussion would be relevant to any crushing plant today. 

What do you think re ideas for use and approaches you may have used?
