Key Performance Indicators: Tool for closure (2020)

  • Share

This tool provides a set of Key Performance Areas (KPA) and illustrative examples of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to support implementation of good closure practices at an operational level.

An operation with clear closure objectives and related KPIs against which performance can be measured are best placed to achieve their closure objectives.

ICMM's 'Key Performance Indicators: Tool for closure' is designed to help companies develop context-relevant performance indicators that drive accountability and performance. Indicators should cover a ‘plan-do-check-act’ (PDCA) approach. They should take into consideration outcomes relating to risks to the business as well as outcomes for society and the environment.

The tool does not prescribe what these indicators should be, but instead provides illustrative examples for asset leaders, including application notes. These site-level measures may be aggregated to provide visibility at key decision-making points, centrally and at senior management level. Some suggestions for aggregated indicators are also shared.

This tool should be used in conjunction with ICMM’s 'Integrated Mine Closure: Good practice guide', which provides guidance on all aspects of closure planning and implementation.
