47 - DOM: Declared Ore Mined
In this episode of Fresh Thinking by Snowden Optiro, Rayleen Hargreaves, Principal Consultant and Reconcilor Product Owner discusses Declared Ore Mined (DOM) with Ian Glacken, Executive Consultant with Snowden Optiro. What is the meaning of DOM, where does it fit in reconciliation, and what are the pros and cons of using DOM as one of the cornerstones of mine reconciliation are some of the topics discussed in this episode.
Both Rayleen and Ian are passionate advocates for continuous improvement via reconciliation across the entire mining value chain.
This podcast at a glance:
1:16 How do you define DOM and how does it fit into the Mine Value Chain?
2:17 Why do you think that some mines or companies choose to use DOM and other companies use recalculated or factored mill figures?
3:24 What are the issues with stockpiles and DOM? Does it depend upon where the stockpiles are? How should we decide which stockpiles should be included in the DOM calculation?
5:24 Are there better options than using DOM? What does that say about the ‘boundary’ between the mine and the plant?
6:50 How are the reconciliation figures handled in Reconcilor?
8:30 Would you incorporate the stockpile delta in the mine figures or mill figures when designing a reconciliation system?
