Mining

Integrated and sustainable mine infrastructure design

Mining

South Africa remains one of the largest producers of mineral resources in the world and the mining industry is intrinsically linked to the national economy. It has now become critically important to ensure mines are developed and operated in a sustainable manner – environmentally, socially, and financially.

We have undertaken mining projects for junior miners and mining giants alike, both in South Africa and throughout Africa. We have worked with multiple commodities – from coal, manganese and iron ore to tin, platinum, gold, and bauxite. Our key personnel are well versed in the most current mining technologies as well as the sensitivities around mining developments. We always strive to optimise time and costs to improve the viability of any project.
