Managing the quality variability within stockpiles and ensuring that the desired ore qualities are maintained during processing can be challenging. To achieve a consistent and desired ore composition, blending of materials from different stockpiles requires careful planning and coordination to maintain the right blend ratios. Additionally, moisture levels in stockpiles can fluctuate due to weather conditions, and excess moisture can lead to handling and processing difficulties, impacting throughput and efficiency.

Keeping track of the quantities of materials in various stockpiles, along with their corresponding grades, can also be complex. Tracking the movement of materials from different stockpiles to the processing plant must always include accurate measurements of dilution.

Stockpiles also leave negative environmental and health impacts when managed poorly, which can have consequences on a mining company’s ESG rating and investment prospects. To avoid this, mining companies must proactively minimize dust emissions to improve compliance with regulations.

Key Client Challenges:

  1. What strategies can we use to effectively blend materials from different stockpiles to achieve desired ore compositions?
  2. What technologies can help us accurately track the movement of materials between stockpiles and the processing plant?
  3. How can we minimize moisture-related issues in stockpiles and maintain consistent material properties?
  4. Are there best practices for optimizing equipment utilization in stockpile management processes?
  5. What technologies are available for real-time monitoring of stockpile conditions, such as moisture content, temperature, and density?
  6. How can we improve inventory management to avoid overstocking or understocking of materials?
  7. What are the environmental regulatory requirements for stockpile management, and how can we ensure compliance?

Mining operations are often subject to environmental regulations that dictate how stockpiles should be managed, including issues such as erosion control, water management, and containment of potentially hazardous materials.

Our subject matter experts at Unison Mining can work closely with your teams to ensure compliance with these evolving regulations. By incorporating the processes, systems and performance metrics needed within your existing systems, your team can proactively monitor compliance with ESG regulations and facilitate continuous feedback and improvement in stockpile management processes.
