SRK Consulting (UK) Celebrates 21 Years

Established in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1974 SRK Consulting has grown into an international organisation of engineers and scientists providing a comprehensive range of consulting services to resource industries with nearly 900 staff in 2009, in 37 offices in 16 countries.

SRK (UK) was established in Cardiff, Europe’s youngest capital city, in 1988 and we now employ over 60 full time technical specialists providing experienced support for all aspects of the natural resource industry. Though based in the UK, we work on projects all over the world in conditions ranging from the tropics to the permafrost, on deposits as diverse as precious metals and iron ore, on grass roots exploration projects to operating and closing mines and on projects large and small.

To celebrate our 21st anniversary, we hosted a gala evening at London’s prestigious venue, the iconic Tower Bridge. We were joined by clients, founding staff and old friends who helped us both to celebrate our coming of age and discuss and develop our ideas for the future.

SRK (UK)’s people have been the key to its success, with the company continually attracting, and being able to retain, consultants who have invariably been leaders in fields such as geological modelling and resource estimation, mining, environmental science and water management. SRK (UK)’s multi-national staff, competent in over ten languages, are comfortable with the culturally diverse mining world. It is these dynamic skills coupled with the company’s global perspective that enables us to provide a complete service to our clients.

Our 21 years of experience enables us to provide a truly comprehensive range of consulting services to the resource industry and, knowing we do not live in a risk-free world, we recognise that understanding and balancing the risk with the perceived benefits provides the best return for investors. Our approach is to combine the best people with the innovative application of leading edge ideas and technology. Our knowledge of regulations, field experience, proven technical expertise and a history of success ensures your project proceeds as smoothly and cost effectively as possible, without sacrificing technical quality.

During our 21 years, our achievements in international business have twice been recognised: in 1986 with the Queen’s Award for Export, and in 2006 with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade. We are ISO9001:2008 accredited and achieved Best Companies accreditation, being ranked 4th in Wales and as one of the Top 100 Companies to Work for in the UK in 2009.

We look forward to providing the mining industry with many more decades of innovative and pragmatic consultancy services.
