Following the decision of a South African government to contract out the management of a state owned mine, officials identified an urgent need to address reported large-scale theft of product and a requirement to develop controls to assure government royalties through increased transparency of recovery and reporting processes.
We were engaged to develop and implement a security programme to reduce the large-scale organised theft of product. Applying a proven mine security concept was instrumental in identifying numerous risks to the mining operation. Structured control mechanisms reduced the level of criminal activity and provided accountability throughout the recovery process.
This improvement programme addressed the fundamental risks that threatened the longevity of the mining operation
