Mining

From pit to port, GENEO has helped mining organisations transform their processes and empower people to own the value stream.

Mining is notoriously driven by volume targets which in a Lean environment can present some challenges considering the waste of over-production.

GENEO has experience of working in Operations, Maintenance, Engineering, Supply and Human Resources.  GENEO’s team of experts can adapt Lean without jeopardising the principles and make it meaningful in this dynamic industry.

From Drill and Blast through to train allocations and operations at the port, GENEO can support you in optimising the mining value stream.
