In 2016, Outliers Mining Solutions delivered a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt program at a partner Gold Mining Operation in Canada. The program, conducted over a 6-month period, included two waves of 12 attendees across all aspects of the operation, including mine operation, geology, human resources, finance, and safety departments.
Once executed, the projects realized a total business value of over $68 million, which the site finance department validated. This improvement included a 305 TPOH increase in mill throughput realized through increased secondary crusher power draw. This single project has an annualized value of over $45 million.
These case studies accurately reflect how the OMS Business Improvement Training program effectively enhances mine site’s overall efficiency and productivity. The program is specifically designed to give teachable skills to mining-professionals through hands-on practice and real-world application. Outlier Mining Solutions’ team of experienced mining facilitators are assigned to hand-picked mine site employees to analyze and select areas of improvement. This personalized approach facilitates training that successfully improves site’s safety, production management, and the use of spending. Since the structure of the program provides solutions to active problems, results are seen immediately.
