Our client, a major gold producer in West Africa, was employing a contractor to mine and manage its open-pit operations. To remove the ‘contractor margin’ and obtain improved control of its operations, the client decided to transition to an owner-operator model.

Partners in Performance was initially engaged to conduct a diagnostic to evaluate the existing transition plans, identifying any gaps or weaknesses, and assess the client’s operational readiness.

Key deliverables

  • Reduced operating cost by more than 50%, which has been sustained over 12 months through the implementation of effective sustainable cost improvement initiatives
  • Increased production levels by more than 20%
