Mining and Quarrying Oman 2014

How to optimise mine and quarry operations to increase production capacity and achieve higher profits.

Oman’s 700km long and 150km wide mountains contain the best exposed ophiolite suite of rocks, which are favorable for copper, gold, silver, chromite, lead, nickel, maganese and zinc. Significant growth is expected over the next five years to help diversify the Sultanate's economy and create jobs for Omani nationals.

High set-up and operational costs mean Producers seek technologies, equipment and methods to increase production capacity, reduce downtime and optimise material flow to achieve higher profits. Drill and blast technologies can reduce processing costs and requirements whilst extending the lifecycle of the site. In addition, effective equipment selection and management can eliminate downtime and achieve higher material flow.

The recent requirement to add value to raw materials prior to export, has led to Producers seeking investment and partnerships to develop benefication plants and is likely to result in the development of a downstream industry.
