Reduced Flow Rate for Reduced Rock Bridging
The Synchronous team used tools and frameworks from our experience designing, building, and operating deep-space robotic systems to analyze rock bridge formation and the problem they present to the crushers. We integrated research into crusher geometry, new and existing technologies, and the overall mine/plant configuration to find the most effective and efficient solution. By determining the primary cause of the rock bridges, we identified several potential solutions and selected the best option based upon criteria presented by the Newcrest team.
