Face to Surface –Task 1: Baseline Mapping of the Mining Operation in Aitik
2015 (English)Report (Other academic)
“Face to Surface” is a project within the strategic innovation program “Mining and Metals”, which is a collaboration between Vinnova, Formas and Energy Agency of Sweden with additional funding from Boliden Mineral AB and LKAB. The project is aimed to improve productivity and efficiency of mining activities through optimization of the overall production chain. The current status report corresponds to the first task of the project–Baseline Mapping.The report presents the overall process chain of mining operation in Boliden Aitik copper mine, Sweden. The production chain is initially described as a system of singular processes. Each process is then described in more details, including inter-relations and downstream effects of each process within the operation. The report provides a basis for identification of potential fields of improvement in the process. The subsequent tasks of the project will be conducted upon internal discussions based on the findings of this report.
