Burn your Bridges (closed)
This challenge is an open invite to propose feasible solutions, which may reduce the time lost due to rock bridges. There is no limitation on the approach taken, as long as your solution can deliver against a set of criteria, which the judging panel will assess against. Solutions may tackle the problem through elimination, prevention, prediction, an improvement in response time after the occurrence or any other means.
Our aim is to identify the top solutions and engage with the right team(s) to implement a solution on site.
The prize money is a reward for winning the competition and any further work will be agreed on directly between Newcrest and the team.
Solutions will be judged on various factors:
- The likely impact or efficacy in reducing the problem
- The capital expenditure required
- The ongoing operational expenditure required
