Improve Performance Without Capital

Our Client

Mogalakwena Platinum Operation in South Africa
Note: at Anglo American, the BPF is referred to as “The Operating Model”

The Approach

BPF elements implemented:

  • Operational Planning
  • Work Management
  • Analyze & Improve

The Challenge

Significant output improvement was required, with the solution thought to be a very large capital project increasing the capacity of the Concentrator.

Results To Date

“We have increased annual production from 305 000 platinum ounces in 2012 to an estimated 490 000 ounces in 2018 – or from 721 000 PGM ounces to over 1.15 Moz –
simply by improving mining and concentrator efficiencies.”

35% concentrator volume increase

“BPF contributed a key element of a broader change program”, Mark Cutifani, CEO Anglo American, Feb 2019
