North America: Goderich salt

Since 2011, SRK has assisted Compass Minerals in geomechanical and mine design improvements at their operations in Ontario. Recently, SRK looked at various alternative salt mining extraction and material handling options for the underground Goderich Mine. SRK worked with equipment manufacturers and mine operations staff to develop a mine model that generated productivities, capital costs and operating costs, comparing over 6 different alternatives to their current mining process. The results demonstrated that a more continuous mining system, vs. existing batch mining and haulage system, would significantly benefit the company through cost reduction, increased productivity and reduced diesel emissions.
