Extractive Metallurgy and Mineral Processing

Unlock mineral wealth

Our experienced team of metallurgists and process specialists primarily focus on metallurgical studies, due diligence and project review; and have played key roles in early stage engineering studies, process operations optimisation and technical support. We typically team with EPCM companies for the processing aspects of feasibility studies and for detailed engineering, plant commissioning and performance trials. Our team’s experience includes most aspects of extractive metallurgy and mineral processing of base and precious metals; industrial and energy minerals; diamonds and rare earth elements, from test work to engineering and operations. We have a strong background in the engineering and operation of crushing, grinding, leaching (tank and heap), concentration, pressure and bio-oxidation, SXEW, smelting and roasting processes. Our specialists have strong operational backgrounds, having advanced many greenfields projects from metallurgical sample identification, test work program development, data analysis, process flowsheet design, trade-offs and engineering studies through detailed engineering, construction, commissioning and operations support.  We work to provide value-adding, cost effective recommendations and have the tools and experience to maximise economic return on your project. We can fill the role of senior technical advisors to provide support and mentoring as needed to your operations and personnel. With continuing changes to regulatory and financial requirements relating to disclosure and development of mineral projects, our extensive project review and due diligence experience is vital to meet your project evaluation requirements. Our specialists are also up to date with modern sustainable technologies.
