A spun-off regional gold company was trying to cope with an extremely high cost structure, an aging equipment fleet with a utilization rate of less than 50%, and excessive inventory levels. The new company’s management team was tasked with focusing the organization or face closure.

To affect a company turnaround, we performed a detailed analysis of current operations. Production levels were benchmarked and improvement opportunities were prioritized. A comprehensive roadmap for upgrading the fleet was designed so that production could be taken to the next level toward industry standards. A plan was put into place to lower the company’s cost structure by 20%.
