This enables us to help our clients find, delineate and estimate the size and quality of their mineral deposits effectively. Our team of geologists have a wealth of experience covering a wide range of commodities and deposit styles. We tailor our input to a clients’ particular needs, whilst maintaining an independent role for reporting of resources and reserves in the public domain and in consideration of International Reporting codes.

Mining Engineering Services

Successful mining projects require a combination of technical and managerial expertise. SRK provides a wide range of services across the mining sector and our experienced specialists have worked throughout the industry. This enables us to advise clients based on our extensive global knowledge. Our mining engineers generally have extensive practical mining experience and can provide technical advice on all mining methods and approaches.

Geotechnical Engineering Services

SRK’s Geotechnical Engineering group works in diverse environments, from permafrost to equatorial latitudes. We have experience of varied geotechnical environments and undertake design of open pits in weathered near-surface rocks to deep underground mines in high stress environments. Our group has broad experience across most commodities.  With our extensive experience, we can provide expert geotechnical advice and guidance through every step of the mine development process with continued support into operations.

Minerals & Metallurgy Processing

Metallurgy and processing aspects have to be considered at all stages of a mining project from initial exploration and project evaluations, through to operations and plant enhancements or expansions. SRK has a core group of metallurgists and processing engineers with experience in the development and evaluation of metallurgical testwork programs, technical studies, flowsheet and plant design, process audits, plant debottlenecking and troubleshooting, and operations.

Tailings & Mine Waste Management

SRK has extensive experience in the field of mine tailings and waste engineering, having designed and developed waste management facilities for mines worldwide. Tailings and waste management guidelines stipulate that storage facilities are designed, operated, managed, closed and rehabilitated to strict technical and environmental criteria. Based upon extensive global experience, SRK has developed a framework of management principles for implementing these activities throughout the entire mine life cycle.

Mining Water Management Services

The mining sector is a significant water user - as well as a significant producer of waste water. Effective mine water management is an essential component of a mine's success.  SRK evaluate water issues and associated risks within the development objectives of a mining project.  This includes assessing relevant issues and delivering solutions which are practical, appropriate and cost effective.

Exploration & Environmental Geochemistry

Traditionally, geochemistry focused on exploration, looking for anomalies that would point the way to new deposits. Environmental geochemistry assesses the potential environmental impact from mines. Geochemistry also forms a key aspect of geometallurgy that combines an understanding of the minerals and their properties with the way they are liberated into commodities. Geochemistry at SRK encompasses all these aspects.

Mining Related Environmental & Social Services

Environmental management has been a core competency of SRK since its establishment, and our environmental and social services skills have now diversified to meet the needs of the global mining industry and address evolving international trends. We adapt studies to deal effectively with the unique circumstances of each project and its associated decision-making processes. SRK’s history in the mining and natural resource sector enables us to quickly discern potential issues faced by our clients relating to the full scope of mining projects including processing facilities, transport infrastructure, power and water supply systems, dredging of waterways and resettlement.

Infrastructure and Logistics

Whether a project concerns the expansion of an existing operation or the development of a new mine, infrastructure and logistics often present significant commercial and operational challenges.  These require practical and cost-effective solutions to ensure a project’s economic viability. SRK has extensive experience in providing a strategic service for a variety of infrastructure and logistics projects.

Mining Finance & Economics

Successful mining projects require a combination of technical and managerial expertise.  SRK provides a wide range of services across the mining sector and our experienced specialists have worked throughout the industry.  The development of a Technical Economic Model is a fundamental part of any mining feasibility or due diligence study and in order to derive income-based approach valuations.  In addition, SRK is regularly called upon by exploration and mining companies seeking to obtain an independent valuation of either the company as a whole, of individual, or groups of, assets that they own or of assets that they might be interested in owning.
