Our Mine Engineering expertise in open pit and underground mining techniques and economics is cultivated by extensive international experience in a wide range of commodities and mining methods. Our Mine Engineering team is a key source of revenue for the SMS team and a critical part of the SMS team. Additionally, the growth in capability of our mining engineering and environmental engineering is underpinning our credibility in delivering full-service substantiality support to the industry.
