Emerson’s 2018 Reliability Program of the Year

By: James Nord and Danielle Ouellet-Lemieux, Detour Gold

Due to Detour Gold’s low grade ore, the demand to increase production is continuously increasing and maintenance costs are high. As a result, the reliability department has and continues to implement several upgrades to improve throughput and lower maintenance costs, while maintaining a safe working environment.

This presentation will give a brief overview of the overall operation of the process plant and discuss some of the improvements made. This session will also include the quality control methods used for plant shut downs and off site rebuild programs with business partners. Furthermore, it will cover the ongoing inhouse maintenance strategy optimization activities.

Please join us as the 2018 Emerson Reliability Program of the Year winner, Detour Gold, shares how they increased throughput by 30%, in their 24/7/365 operation.
