Mining, Minerals & Metals

Overview

Mining can change the world in a future that hinges on widespread electrification. Many of the resources we help mine, process and transport are crucial in efforts to store and release energy. We’ll need these resources to bring hundreds of millions of people out of energy poverty.

EPCM has the expertise to execute and manage complex mining and metal projects through their entire life cycle. In challenging and remote locations around the world, clients trust us to deliver capital efficiency and project certainty.

EPCM’s mining process expertise encompasses all aspects of minerals and metals recovery from studies through process design, engineering, procurement, fabrication, construction, start-up, and commissioning any size of processing facilities and related infrastructure. 

Our services range from retrofits and expansions of existing facilities to the design and construction of greenfield developments requiring extensive infrastructure facilities. We can build and maintain large- and small-scale mining projects in remote areas of the world. 

Our consulting and engineering services cover all aspects of project evaluation, exploration and monitoring, resource and reserve estimation, mine support and mine closure and rehabilitation.
