Study of mobile maintenance related asset utilization in mining operations at New Afton Mine Site

This project corresponds to a study of utilization of assets at the New Afton mine, in Kamloops, BC. With the collaboration of New Gold’s conglomerate and Thompson Rivers University this will collect sufficient data internally and by comparing it with publicly related information of similar companies and using statistical tools and optimization models, will provide recommendations that can be used in the whole mining sector.
The benefit for New Afton will be understanding the proper way to manage its resources and how to function proactively with to the economic cycles that arise in the industry.
