Khoemacau Copper Mining


Project Overview

Barminco was awarded a 5-year underground Mining Services Contract at the Zone 5 Underground Copper Mine in Botswana from Khoemacau Copper Mining Pty Ltd (KCM). Barminco’s scope of services includes mine development, establishment of underground mine infrastructure, diamond drilling and mine production at an initial rate of 3.6 million tonnes per annum of copper ore.


TBH’s Role

TBH was engaged by Barminco to provide project planning and scheduling services for the development of the Master Baseline Project and create a critical path programme out of the Underground Software Deswik into Microsoft Project.
This role then expanded into providing expert opinions with respect to Extension of Time (EOT) claims due to various delays experienced onsite, including COVID 19.


The TBH Difference

As TBH specialises in Project Programming & Scheduling, the key findings were clearly identifiable when analysing the critical path. Barminco was then able to use this information to negotiate with their Client, which led to a successful outcome. This success was a result of TBH’s skilled professionals who have vast experiences with developing programme critical paths and assessing delay events.
