Mindful of the impact of mining on people and the natural environment, WSP focuses on helping our clients minimise the environmental impact of their operations whilst maximising security.

WSP is experienced in technically challenging projects for mines throughout their lifespan, from commissioning, through operation to closure.

The global increase in the price of metals is fuelling a boom in mining.  Production is increasing at existing mines, old abandoned mines are given a new lease of life and new seams are being discovered.

Mining operations present a number of technical and environmental challenges.  We need to find solutions for large projects, usually in very remote locations where there is existing infrastructure.

WSP’s services to the mining sector include:

  • Environmental Impact Assessments
  • Energy assessments of mines
  • Construction management
  • Laser scanning
  • Facilities design
  • Furnace design
  • Restoration of contaminated land
  • Land planning
  • Geotechnical investigations of dams
