Whole of Resource Optimisation Modelling (WOROM)

A&B Mylec recommend the development a Whole of Resource Optimisation Model (WOROM) to be incorporated into the Operational / Life of Mine Plan (LOMP). This approach assists in the development of an optimum processing strategy for a resource by measuring the economic viability of the project under different strategies and allowing the identification of the differences between these.

The in-house developed techniques utilise available resource data and various modelling and gridding tools to deliver operational scenarios that drive the maximum revenue position for the project. Inherent resource quality cannot be changed, but the processing methodology, blending strategies and portfolio of products can be altered to maximise revenue provided product quality can be delineated and its impact on price accurately assessed.

Each element of the supply chain contains variables which can be modified for economic effect. The complexity of linking these supply chain element variables together in order to examine whole of resource implications is the challenge of the WOROM.

The following figure (Figure 1) graphically represents the notional inputs and outputs of the WOROM.

A&B Mylec has extensive experience at delivering the coal quality outcomes which provide the optimal solution for the resource in question, targeting the maximum revenue position and minimal whole of project risk profile.
