  • The Sishen mining team delivered a 15% increase in ore production for 2014.

    AMC’s expert knowledge in mine operations and planning was of great assistance in identifying significant opportunities that were ready for immediate implementation. AMC worked closely with the Sishen team in 2014 to assist in acting upon these opportunities. A highlight of AMC's work was its involvement in strategically re-designing the mine extraction sequencing. This work has greatly assisted the increase in 2014 ore production, while enabling production levels to be sustained over the remaining life-of-mine schedule. I would have no hesitation in recommending AMC’s services to any mine operator seeking real value delivery in these challenging market conditions.
