What will you learn?

Maximise cash & improve mine valuation

Increase cash flow and learn how to improve the value of minerals businesses by 5% to 35%, and in many cases substantially more.

One model for the entire mine

Learn how to implement effective long-term mine planning to optimise the whole value chain including; mining, mineral processing, logistics, production and capital.

The Whittle 10 Steps

A Whittle Enterprise Optimisation model consolidates existing knowledge and data from disparate systems into a single integrated model. When applied simultaneously, the Whittle 10 Steps produce extraordinary results.

Identify bottlenecks & improve cost modelling

The application of powerful techniques and concepts such as Activity Based Costing, combined with Theory of Constraints, creates a dynamic analytical approach for decision making across all aspects of a mining operation.


Whittle Integrated Strategic Planning aims to find the balance between financial value and other important elements such as Sustainability.

Case study examples

“It is no exaggeration to say that the techniques presented constitute one of the most significant innovations that I have seen in almost 30 years of experience in the mining industry.“
