Improve Mining Economics
Whittle Enterprise Optimisation studies have consistently proven to significantly enhance the economics of mining projects and operations.
Considering all parts of the value chain and all stakeholders
Mining companies invariably have detailed models for every part of the system – but they are all separate and are not integrated. This limits their ability to work together. In contrast, the Whittle Enterprise Optimisation model, conducted using the Whittle Integrated Strategic Planning process is a concept of long-term planning, considering all parts of the value chain, all time periods and all stakeholders simultaneously. This provides you with the ability to thoroughly consider future decisions and understand how they may affect overall business performance.
Our results have been consistently achieved in over 180 Whittle Enterprise Optimisation studies, carried out over the last 20 years, across all continents and commodities.

Results and outcomes to expect
Cash today is more valuable than the same amount of cash received in the future, due to its potential earning capacity. The result of the Whittle Integrated Strategic Planning process has repeatedly proven to enhance the economics of a mining business from 5%-35%, and in many cases substantially more. This occurs even when other conventional optimisation techniques have already been applied.
