Our holistic geotechnical, hydrogeological and hydrological solutions enable sustainable mine development. We provide an efficient pathway through the full mining lifecycle – from feasibility to regulation approvals, design, construction, waste management, closure and rehabilitation.

We leverage efficiencies to minimise waste and create efficiencies in water use, design and processing.  We understand that water balance is key to mine site efficiency. Our expertise allows us to provide comprehensive solutions for mining operations that consider all aspects of water use, including sourcing, treatment and disposal.

Our scientific and immersive modelling techniques future-proof TSF management and compliance. With the flexibility means to assist at any stage of a mine’s lifecycle, our solutions meet regulatory standards for tailings management, providing peace of mind and a safer operating environment.

Our IP and technology are unrivalled in their ability to capture and manage data, enabling us to expedite the design process. Our technology in design is raising the standard for our industry, creating a holistic approach to TSF design and water management to ensure long-term stability, safety and efficiency.

Tailored solutions, trusted partnerships

Partnering with our clients to reduce the environmental impact of their operations, we work within each mine site’s unique set of challenges and requirements. Our multi-skilled mining engineering consultants consider civil, geotechnical, hydrogeological and hydrological data in design to simplify feasibility studies and rapid decision making. With the dynamic nature of the mining industry, we keep your pace and meet evolving needs – ensuring transparent and direct communication to deliver results that align with project goals.
