Strategies to help achieve industry best practice

Back to case studies

The McArthur River Mine (MRM) in the Northern Territory, Australia is a world class site producing 384,000 dry metric tones of Zinc-Lead bulk concentrate per annum. 

Ausenco Rylson was engaged to deliver maintenance strategies for the Heavy Medium Plant based on OEM recommendations. The following services were provided: 

  • OEM Strategy Implementation 
  • Preventative Maintenance Strategy Work Packaging 
  • Technical Documentation Generation including customised formal Standard Job Attachments 
  • CMMS Data Upload (Ellipse). 


Ausenco Rylson achieved the following deliverables for the McArthur River Mine: 

  • Formalised Preventative Maintenance Strategy allowing reliable planning of required preventative maintenance resources 
  • OEM preventative maintenance strategy migrated to CMMS. This allows development of detailed maintenance history records empowering the organisation to make considered decisions about the effective operation of the Heavy Medium Plant. 

These achievements will serve as a strong foundation for future pursuit of industry best practice.
