Mine to Mill: Sustainable Step Change

Why run a Mine to Mill Program? A successful drill to mill program can deliver a sustainable step change in mill throughput without capital spending. Other benefits can include improved dig rates, truck & shovel productivity, and longer component life. These benefits can often be achieved with little or no increase in drill & blast operating or capital costs.
