MineLens can help diagnose, quantify, prioritize and track value creation opportunities across your mining sites and processing plants.

Operations Diagnostic

MineLens experts combine qualitative assessment of your site mining practices with quantitative operational data to provide actionable recommenda-tions for improving site performance


Benchmark your operations against the largest mining database, more than 200 mining operations, across 17 commodities, six continents and all major mining methods:

  • Open pit mining
  • Underground soft rock
  • Underground hard rock
  • Comminution
  • Beneficiation

Mining Productivity

We developed the MineLens Productivity Index (MPI) to measure the productivity of mining operations by taking into account capital spend, labor, other non-labor costs and excluding the impact of external factors, such as ore grade and mine cost inflation

Performance management

MineLens methodology (supported by proprietary software) connects site operational and financial data to provide increased transparency into performance drivers and allow you to assess and track impact of improvement initiatives on site cash costs
