Optimize productivity with data and insight from mine lens
Volatile commodity prices and industry market valuations are forcing mine operators to cut costs, limit capital expenditures, and boost productivity. The size and speed of profitability improvements are hard to predict and vary significantly by commodity, region, and specific mine. MineLens analyzes labour, cost, and equipment-productivity data; benchmarks that data against a global set of peers; and delivers insights into performance-improvement opportunities.
Our mining experts conduct site visits to assess operational practices, while our data specialists work to consolidate, clean, and map time-series data (such as metric tons, equipment metrics, and rates).
Leveraging our proprietary benchmarking database, our experts compare an organization’s operating, labour, and cost performance with that of a global set of peers and use the results to deliver a road map of improvement initiatives.
Assessment and goals
Our experts assess the effects that throughput and cost initiatives have on profitability and capital expenditures and work with the organization to align around common metrics, set achievable performance targets, and use dashboards to measure improvement over time.
Unique, targeted insights
Our team of mining experts visit sites to understand the unique context of a company’s operations and provides recommendations based on the most granular level of detail.
• Mine Spans
Distinctive Knowledge in mining cost curve, supply and demand model
MineSpans enables strategic decision making by providing mining operators and investors with the most robust cost curves, tools, supply and demand models, and commodity outlooks.
Cost, Curves and Models
Highly granular historical and forecasted cash costs broken down by activity, including mining, processing, overhead, freight, treatment charges, refining charges, byproducts, royalties, and additional full sustaining costs, such as sustaining capital expenditures and corporate selling, general, and administrative costs
Proprietary methodology for mill-head-grade and reserve-grade erosion, life of mine, and supply scenarios
Demand outlook based on Kanban Infosystem internal demand model
Individual Mine Model
Excel outputs feature supply and cost breakdowns, including by parameters such as material moved, run of mine, strip ratio, recoveries, and grades
Mine models also allow flexing of macroeconomic inputs, commodity prices, exchange rates, oil price, wages, and power price
Our teams gather and extract data from approved, publicly available sources, and then use a 1,000-point quality inspection to ensure completeness and accuracy.
Whenever possible, we supplement source data with MineSpans' own analysis of more than 1,000 cost and supply data points for each mine—data that’s evaluated by experts to ensure accurate and meaningful results.
Analysis and Insights
Our experts use the consolidated data to generate reports that answer the key questions of commodity demand, supply, and cost. These insights are delivered through an interactive portal; ensuring users can quickly and accurately find the content they require.
Rigorous and detailed analysis
Rather than settling for top-down estimates, our cost curves are built bottom-up, based on a robust and detailed analysis. All our models use the same framework, enabling clients to estimate supply and cost globally by commodity, country, region, mine, and operator.
Data quality and transparency
MineSpans employs a global network of analysts with extensive expertise who distil available public information to construct a consistent, structured model for each mining operation. Every sourced MineSpans data point is fully annotated with the original source document so that clients have full transparency into primary sources.
