ShovelMetrics™ Case Studies

Payload Monitoring in A Precious Metal Mine


Payload Monitoring


How quickly can ShovelMetrics™ save you money? In this case study, an African platinum mine achieves significant savings in only two months.

In this case study you will understand:

  • The drawbacks of underloading and overloading shovel buckets, and the benefits mines can realize by making small improvements to shovel productivity via payload monitoring.

  • How the platinum mine in this case study improved their average bucket payload by 20% while also improving payload compliance and reducing the number of severe overloads.

  • How optimizing their average bucket payload enabled the mine in this case study to excavate an additional 1.44 million tonnes per year for additional annual earnings of USD $130 million.
