Ian de Bruyn has 21 years’ experience in the fields of engineering geology and geotechnical engineering over a wide range of projects in both the mining and civil sectors. He has particularly strong expertise in geotechnical assessment and provision of design parameters for open pit mining operations and has worked on projects involving very large pits in challenging rock mass and hydrogeological conditions. He is well versed in rock mass characterisation and domain modelling for input into fragmentation analysis, selection of mining method and support design for underground mines. Ian’s projects have involved site investigation, characterisation, analysis, evaluation, design, risk assessment and reporting at all levels – from conceptual through pre-feasibility, feasibility and working design. He has also performed geotechnical assessments for due diligence studies. Ian has expertise in civil engineering site investigations / evaluations, including extensive work on karst-related ground instability, and site characterisation for foundation design for civil and mining infrastructure. Ian is currently the team leader of the SRK geotechnical group in the Perth office, and is a member of the SRK Practice Leaders Group.
