In October, the underground mine of Nova Zinc LLP (a subsidiary of the Chelyabinsk zinc plant, an enterprise of the UMMC metallurgical complex) fulfilled the production plan for 2020 - 450,000 tons of ore ahead of schedule.
"The launch of a transformation program at the enterprise helped us achieve this," says Suindyk Asan, general director of Nova Zinc LLP.
As part of the program, the team carried out a colossal amount of work to diagnose and identify redistributions restraining the increase in enterprise productivity. As a result, the specialists developed and implemented organizational and technical measures that allowed to increase the rate of ore extraction by 30 percent in the short term.
