Mining Engineering

The profitability of a mine requires an engineering perspective, a long term experience that gives you real answers. Our close interaction with resources geologists and geotechnical engineers allows us to assess the practical mining implications associated with the resource model and the surrounding rock mass. Our work ranges from due diligence audits, completion tests and conceptual capacity studies to classified ore reserve estimation, full feasibility studies and detailed mine design for open pit and underground mines for a wide range of commodities and mining methods.
