The extraction of natural resources remains critical to meeting growing global demand. During economic downturns, the spot price of natural resources significantly increases an organisations risk exposure to capital investment expansion projects. As a result, Mining organisations must seek smarter and more efficient ways to deliver capital investment expansion projects, with a strong focus on increased governance and control throughout delivery using efficient processes, underpinned by robust systems.

Whether expanding a brownfields operation, or commencing a greenfield one, LogiKal can draw from their global experience to Advise and Support clients, or the supply chain, to improve the governance and management of the work being undertaken to increase the likelihood of success. LogiKal have experience helping clients achieve Financial Investment Decision (FID) through to ensuring Operational Readiness. LogiKal’s outcome focussed solutions empower management through effective and efficient performance management, with robust governance of time, cost, risk and change.

With exposure working with mining houses, predominantly throughout Australia from the east coast to the west, LogiKal has extensive experience shaping the success of mining houses as they embark on capital investment expansion programmes, or simply seek to improve the efficiency of existing operations. Recent experience includes working with Australia’s major mining houses, one seeking a more robust system solution to governing and controlling cost and the other in opening ‘pit to port’ solution which considerably reduced the cost of production and added billions to the Australian Economy. By advising, implementing and improving delivery performance, LogiKal shape and assist their client’s success by mitigating the delivery risks associated with these expansion projects.
