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 optimization and technical support. Our team’s experience includes most aspects of extractive metallurgy and mineral processing of base and precious metals, industrial and energy minerals, including test work, engineering and operations.
We have a strong background in the operation of crushing, grinding, leaching (tank and heap), concentration, pressure and bio-oxidation, SXEW, smelting and roasting processes. Our specialists have strong operations 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-added economic-sensitive recommendations and results to clients, and have the tools and experience to maximize economic return to your project. 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.

Relevant Projects Conducted
Project Mine: Rapu Rapu Mine, Philippines
Scope: Conducted the metallurgical laboratory testing, and prepared a technical report outlining the sizing of SAG and ball mills.
Outcome: A metallurgical study report was prepared for the gold recovery from the tailings. A grinding circuit was specified to cater for a wide range of tailings parameters.
