The Company
This is an employee-owned, independent, international consulting practice, providing integrated consulting services to the international resource sector. Their expertise and technical capability stretch across mining, geotechnical engineering, geology, resources, exploration, tailings, heap leach and waste management. Other services include environment, coal and mine water. 
Formed over 45 years ago, this globally recognised, and industry-leading consultancy employs around 1500 professionals across Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas.  Having been operational for such a period, this consultancy has built a portfolio of clients that exceeds over a thousand of the world’s major and medium-sized mineral mining houses and exploration companies, financial institutions, construction companies and government departments.
The business is proud to operate a relaxed, inclusive and nurturing culture. Their approach is a little more old-school, than it is corporate, offering a modern but flexible environment.
