Working together at Barrick Goldstrike

2007 Jul 30

The road to preventive maintenance.

When the management at Barrick?s Goldstrike mine began looking at upgrading its equipment fleet, they decided to take a step back and examine the process ? not just the price of each machine. What began as the need for new capital equipment has become a new philosophy on how Barrick can maximize its investment throughout the life of that equipment.

It started as a concept. The new mine manager, Joe Dick, looked at how equipment was being purchased and challenged his management team to look for a better approach. ?We can make anyone?s equipment do the job. What we wanted was a supplier who could help us get better,? affirms Dick.
