SMM: Ecuador local time on August 26th, Mirado copper mine ball mill once again issued a roar, due to the epidemic stopped production for more than 5 months of the mine fully resumed production. On the same day, the ore handling capacity of the concentrator reached 23891 tons.
In early March, the COVID-19 epidemic raged in South America, and the Mirado copper mine in Ecuador had to press the "pause button". When the "restart" is still unknown, Tongling Nonferrous Group and China Railway Construction Copper Crown Investment Company made plans in advance, insisted on the word "strict" and introduced a series of "escort" measures to ensure the rapid restoration of production order.
After a comprehensive analysis and evaluation from the aspects of transportation of production materials and copper concentrate, organization and arrangement of personnel entry, logistics support, safety, environmental protection, occupational health work, production organization, etc., in mid-April, China Railway Construction Copper Crown Investment Co., Ltd. prepared the work Plan for the resumption of production of Merado Copper Mine; in May, the transportation of production materials was resumed to meet the needs of mineral processing production reserves; in June, the copper concentrate began to be transported inland again.
Everything revolves around the resumption of work and production. At the production site, persist in carrying out on-site hidden danger investigation, organize the backbone of party members on the spot by carrying out activities of leading party members' safety and environmental protection awareness, and carry out on-site safety inspection and on-site rectification, equipment maintenance and "three violations" investigation and handling activities. On the issue of "people", we should optimize the staffing of the post of rebirth, strictly screen the epidemic situation before personnel enter, give priority to people from areas with lower epidemic situation, and all entry personnel should be quarantined in the designated place of the company for two weeks. strengthen testing before entering and during the isolation period, and only those with negative results can enter. During the epidemic, the work rotation time was changed from one round a week to one round every eight weeks, effectively reducing personnel mobility.
Before the resumption of production, use the isolation time to conduct safety training for the employees, re-learn the job instructions, post safety risk assessment and epidemic prevention and control manual, and after the release of isolation, assess the knowledge and knowledge of the posts according to their posts. Study and summarize the work of each job post, safety prevention, epidemic prevention and control in the form of group discussion. In addition, the company leader leads the medical staff to enter the production front-line workshop for special guidance.
In more than five months of suspension of production, China Railway Construction Copper Crown Investment Company took the initiative to communicate closely with the Ecuadorian Ministry of Energy, the Ministry of the Environment and other relevant departments and local governments, and finally reached an agreement to resume production in August.
Today, China Railway Construction Copper Crown Investment Co., Ltd. focuses on production organization. On the one hand, it arranges production plans reasonably, on the other hand, through all kinds of linkage debugging, it focuses on system commissioning and water test work, and resumes work and production in a step-by-step and planned way.
The copper concentrate produced by the Milado Copper Mine has also been transported back to Tongling Nonferrous smelter for processing. After reaching the standard, it will bring 96000 tons of copper metal to Tongling Nonferrous Metal every year.
