Plant Optimisation at Tropicana – Technical Paper – World Gold 2019

Naim Abou-Rjeily will be presenting during Technical Session 3b (3.45pm – 5.05pm) on the first day of World Gold 2019.   The paper ‘Plant Optimisation Approach at the Tropicana Gold Mine’, co-authored by Hien Ngo and Steven Piscicelli, discusses the various decisions made during the optimisation process and will show that adopting alternate design decisions can have a major positive cost impact. Effective interpretation and understanding of the overarching issues, combined with good collaboration (one joint team including client operational personnel and design consultants), zero base design and effective use of appropriate equipment are some of the factors that can be used to deliver an optimal final outcome. Very good results were achieved at Tropicana, demonstrating the effectiveness of this approach.
