EPCM IMPLEMENTATION WORK FOR SINKING No 10 SHAFT
Work commenced at the beginning of 2006 where RSV USA’s role involved the set-up of the project which included; preparation of a suite of project implementation procedures and a project implementation plan, definition of the scope of work, establishment of the design criteria, preparation of a project schedule, preparation of a capital cost management plan and project reporting structure. The suite of project procedures was prepared on the basis and guidelines of the Project Management Book of Knowledge, PMBOK.
The scope of the project was to conduct the design, estimating and scheduling for the construction phase of a 730m deep, 7m diameter vertical ore hoisting shaft for the Kibali Gold Project to a feasibility level of accuracy (30% engineering and estimate accuracy of ±15%).
The initial scope of work included the project management services, engineering and design drawings, capital and working cost estimates including baseline construction schedules, to a feasibility level of accuracy. The scope of work formed the project baseline for the Kibali Gold Project.
