INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY
Namdeb continues to explore innovative ways to profitably and sustainably mine the resource in areas which were previously difficult to mine and in so doing extend the life of mine (LOM).
Through the Namdeb’s Mineral Resource and Strategic Projects teams, there are exciting new projects which include:
- The ongoing investment in resource development campaigns, both in the ultra-shallow, shallow and midwater deposit areas,
- The expansion and optimization of our beach accretion systems to create more sustainable and longer term mineable areas,
- The investigation into more cost effective waste stripping systems
- Renewable energy initiatives such as wind, solar and solar water heaters aimed at supporting our energy management and sustainability strategies to reduce our carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions whilst securing electricity supply to our operations.
The success of the above projects will enable Namdeb to materially increase its annual production, reduce its operating cost and extend the Life of Mine.
