Case Study - Asset Integrity Assessment

Energy Resources Australia (ERA), a majority owned subsidiary of Rio Tinto, is Australia’s longest continually operating uranium producer, and operates the Ranger Uranium Mine in Australia’s Northern Territory.

Following a catastrophic failure of one of its leach tanks at the Ranger Mine the ERA Board engaged Assetivity to conduct an independent, risk-based review

in order to:

  • Examine the integrity of broader processing operations,
  • Identify any gaps in operating procedures or maintenance practices, and
  • Make recommendations to ERA regarding the actions required to address any asset integrity and asset management issues identified, and in so doing, assist ERA to address the potential concerns of other stakeholders.

The review considered 8,827 equipment items and made 83 separate recommendations to address generally minor risk issues, read the full case study now.
