You explore to create wealth. You need the most effective methods to identify opportunities and make informed decisions. SRK offers extensive global experience and practical solutions in exploration, resource modelling and estimation, and independent project reviews.
Our experts integrate complex datasets to generate and refine targets, identify controls on mineralisation, and delineate prospective structures and sequences.
Our exploration, mining and corporate clients rely on us for expert service in project reviews, audits and independent assessment of their projects.
We also offer practical courses and workshops for geologists in mineral exploration and mining. You select the modules most appropriate for your staff, your geological environment and your exploration objectives.
Profitable mining demands an independent, experienced, long-term perspective that gives you real answers. How much do you have? Do you have a mine? Is it feasible? What is the optimal design? SRK’s experienced personnel and practical technology give you options and solutions.
Our experience with all types of mining projects on every continent includes surface and underground mines, slope stability and strata control, rock engineering, acid rock drainage, waste engineering and environmental monitoring and management.
Our extensive experience from resource estimation to mine decommissioning ensures innovative, cost effective and environmentally acceptable solutions from Scoping assessment to Feasibility to site rehabilitation.
Existing operations benefit from our audits and engineering services. We help you optimise head grades and increase tonnage, analyse and reduce risk and improve safety and manpower requirements.
Our comprehensive reports help your Board of Directors and technical staff to make informed business decisions.
Stable mine workings, pit slopes and tunnels, solid foundations: whether it’s a mine development, a tunnel, a plant site or a road cutting, you don’t need to risk costly surprises from unforeseen instability, settlement or seismic hazards. We are a leading innovator in geotechnical engineering, combining extensive expertise with sophisticated modelling capabilities to help you minimise risk and develop cost effective solutions for any project.
The geotechnical group encompasses geotechnical engineers, engineering geologists, soil and rock mechanics engineers and civil engineers integrated with our hydrogeological, tailings, geoenvironmental, structural geology and mining groups. Our team has experience in conceptual, pre-feasibility and feasibility studies; due diligence; mine design; operational review and assistance; risk assessments and training.
Our services are wide ranging and allow for a flexible response to your needs, these include:
Stable, cost effective and legally compliant surface facilities: whether it’s a tailings facility, leach pad or municipal/industrial waste facility, you do not need costly surprises from instability, fluid discharges, dust emissions or any other permit violations. And, these facilities must be designed for practical operation and cost effective closure.
Providing you with a clear set of options and their time-related risks is a cornerstone of our engineering services. You can compare these alternatives and make an informed decision on the best option for your needs and risk profile. Our experience helps you minimise risk and keep projects on track and within budget.
SRK is capable of supporting you with sound advice and guidance through your project life cycle including the evaluation of options in the feasibility process, construction, operations and ultimately closure.
Minimising contamination, optimising consumption, improving performance
Efficient water management is essential to all mining and mineral processing activities and must be dutifully considered during each development and operational cycle – from preliminary approvals, production, decommissioning and closure – and its practices must adhere to stringent environmental and socially responsible policies.
We offer an integrated approach to mine water management, combining specialist expertise in hydrology, hydraulics and hydrogeology with geotechnical, environmental and mining skills. Our extensive experience in wet, arid and cold climates enables us to provide cost-effective, practical solutions for your project, and identify methods for more efficient utilisation of water in mining and mineral processing.
Proactive environmental planning saves money. What are the issues and regulations? How do you minimise your liabilities? SRK’s environmental team have the specific experience you need to satisfy the regulations and apply cost effective, technically sound solutions to your environmental challenges.
Our knowledge of the regulations, field experience, proven technical expertise and history of success ensures your project proceeds as smoothly as possible.
SRK’s environmental professionals provide site assessment, impact analysis, detailed site investigation, soil and ground water remediation, waste characterisation and disposal, risk management, and site closure and rehabilitation.
We work with mines looking for economical, effective compliance; with small businesses and industrial giants that all need to assess and manage risk.
