Audit of maintenance functions at African gold mine

Back to case studies

The MOS project included the development of systems and processes for both operations and maintenance across all Newmont’s global mining sites.

Ausenco Rylson were commissioned to conduct an asset management audit at Ahafo Gold Mine in Ghana to ascertain the current state with regard to specific maintenance functions. This involved auditing the following key areas within the maintenance department at both the Process Plant and Mobile Plant Maintenance:

  • Identification of new work 
  • Planning 
  • Scheduling. 

Achievements

  • The project scope was completed within the alloted timeframe. 

Ausenco Rylson were subsequently awarded the role of designing and implementing Newmont’s MOSAMS systems and processes for their global sites.
