Mining operations can benefit from latent capacity

MAJOR mining companies are finding it pays to use latent capacity principles when constructing mine site plant and equipment using latent capacity principles. Not only does it give flexibility to predict extra loads on the mine site operating systems, it can install capacity countercyclically when demand for labour and materials is low.

A project at Caval Ridge is tapping into latent capacity.

Latent capacity is one aspect of scalability where a mining company can include extra performance and availability resources into its systems so they can easily handle unusual peak loads.
