Guideline for short interval control in mining published

June 12th, 2019, Published in Uncategorised articles

The Global Mining Guidelines Group (GMG) has published the Guideline for implementing short interval control in underground mining operations. Short interval control (SIC) is a structured system in which data from mining processes is reviewed and action taken accordingly.

This guideline provides a roadmap to increase the speed and likelihood of success during SIC implementation while avoiding common pitfalls. The publication presents a conceptual model of what SIC which includes an operational framework, detailed workflows and an outline of data enablement at various levels of maturity could look like.

A challenge in implementing SIC is tailoring it to the operation at hand because underground mining conditions can be unpredictable, but the guideline offers mining stakeholders with information on how it can be applied.
