Project Management – Mining Engineering
Over the past 15 years our engineers have worked on some interesting projects in coal, copper, gold and industrial minerals.
In Australia our Principal Mining Engineer managed the installation of a 12 km conveyor with assistance of three site managers and skilled blue collar workers on the earthworks, drainage and concrete works for a period of 8 months and then de-mobilised the site. The project involved 305 men and women on the construction of an overland conveyor and coal stacker.
From the systems introduced by our engineer for earthworks measurement, the client was able to make a claim for an additional $23 million for additional stocking area on the surge stockpile, on the conveyor roadway underpasses / overpasses and in the coal preparation area.

Our engineer project managed the set out with the survey team on a new mine, the accommodation camp, processing area, drainage and the access to portal, mobilised the work force and equipment from other sites within Australia, to use on the contract to build the camp, ore processing plant foundations and the office block.

The principal mining engineer and the team project manages earthworks, planning and permitting applications, restoration of quarries and former industrial sites through his thorough knowledge of the remediation and regulatory controls in using earthworks material to achieve a beneficial use.
The engineers and surveyors have also provided project management and engineering services in South Africa and the Middle East on mining and construction projects.
