Mine Operation Audits

To survive in today's competitive market, mining companies must run cost-effective operations. At Skelly and Loy, we provide third-party assessments of mining operations, from individual job functions to the overall effectiveness of the entire operation. Our assignments involve completion of detailed engineering/economic analyses aimed at synthesizing raw data into a usable format and calculating the productivity and economic consequences associated with current practices. The audit will identify any apparent inefficiencies related to operating procedures, reclamation methods (material handling), staffing, maintenance, management, and equipment selection/usage. Comparative analyses, including benchmarking against industry standards, are completed to determine potential improvements if recommended changes are made. Follow-up investigations may be performed to determine the effects of the implemented changes. Skelly and Loy completes mine operations audits on both surface and underground mines which typically result in increased operator efficiency.
