Our consultants have worked with most deposit and commodity types and bring broad, international perspectives and experience to open pit and underground operational support. Many of our staff have industry backgrounds and collaborate with mine operation teams on projects ranging from short-term mine inspections to long-term provision of integrated technical input.

We have extensive experience in all facets of operation, including construction, stability performance, design implementation, rock support, blasting, monitoring systems, mine planning, and sequencing. 

When faced with difficult and geotechnically complex mining conditions, we help operations develop strategies to manage the risks associated with slope and underground instability. Using industry-recognized and innovative approaches, we assist in rehabilitating waste piles, tailings dams, open pits after failures, and underground excavations that have become unstable. Sometimes this requires application of advanced monitoring instrumentation and survey and radar systems.
