Anaconda Mining’s culture of innovation maximizes production and minimizes their environmental footprint
BMT customer, Anaconda Mining, describes how the company embraces innovation in the November issue of Mining Global.
In an interview with Mining Global, Gordana Slepcev, chief operating officer, talks about how the company culture enables them to better embrace and implement innovation and safety programs.
“For the first time in our company’s history we have created a position of the VP of Innovation, so we can focus on it full time. We have achieved significant mining dilution reduction using technologies such as Blast Monitoring Technologies (BMT) as well as GPS solutions in our shovels and equipment. We’ve also been using drones for a number of years in our development planning processes,” says Slepcev. “For us, it’s about trying to maximize production, bring greater value and efficiency to the business and importantly, decrease our environmental footprint.”
The company’s goal is to achieve a multi-million-ounce portfolio and be producing approximately 100,000 ounces annually with the next five years. Developing the company’s current project portfolio will establish a foundation at which Anaconda can grow and transition into an intermediate producer.
