Comprehensive Mining Services Tailored to Your Needs

Our services cover the full lifecycle of projects, including the initial stages of environmental baseline definition during reserve determination, waste characterisation and management, tailings and heap leach design, groundwater supply, pit dewatering, environmental monitoring, compliance auditing and operations, as well as mine closure, rehabilitation, and contamination management.

Waste characterisation is the study of the environmental impacts of mining waste during mining, processing and above ground storage of ore prior to treatment. We are well-versed in the intricacies of ore and waste characterisation, and provide detailed characterisation services that help you identify and categorise waste materials thoroughly and accurately.

Correct decommissioning of waste rock and tailings dams is a pivotal aspect of a mining operation, as it vastly reduces environmental risk and liability associated with these structures. Our services include the removal or containment of contaminated or hazardous materials and the restoration of affected land, in order to help you decommission your waste rock and tailings dams safely and responsibly.

Technical audits of mines are essential to provide an independent assessment of the safety, health and environmental management systems of the mine and its operations. Our experienced auditing team has been supporting the mining industry for nearly four decades, and can help you identify and address any potential safety hazards or areas of non–compliance before they disrupt your operation.

Buffer zones can help protect habitats and biodiversity, reduce air and water pollution, and provide a measure of safety for nearby communities. Where there is potential for agricultural activity, carbon projects could be run in a buffer zone to generate carbon credits, which can then be used to offset the mining operation’s emissions.
