We are able to call upon a range of supporting disciplines covering sectors such as remediation, waste disposal, alternative energy, strategy and project management.

Due Diligence to Feasibility

With over 100 offices in 35 countries we regularly assist clients with fatal flaw assessments, scoping studies, due diligence, competent person reports, pre-feasibility studies, definitive feasibility studies and detailed engineering design.

Exploration & Geology

With our field geologists on the ground we can design, implement and manage grassroots exploration programmes or undertake due diligence on existing site investigations. Our experienced mineral evaluation experts are equally comfortable undertaking remote desktop assistance through geological interpretation, 3D modelling, resource estimation and competent person reports.

Mining Engineering

By carrying out geotechnical assessments, slope stability studies, geophysical surveys and rock engineering appraisals we can accurately assess the suitability of any potential mine site. Our engineers design both underground and surface mines, estimate mineral reserves, plan production and scheduling, optimise existing operations, provide mine equipment specification and transport system design and estimate capital and operating costs, all as part of scoping, pre-feasibility or full feasibility studies.

Infrastructure

Royal HaskoningDHV designs, develops and builds all mine-related infrastructure facilities; from materials handling systems and coal processing plants, through to mine site accommodation and amenities as well as communication and transport requirements, incorporating road, rail and conveyors.

Power

Our expertise extends beyond the mine itself. We call upon an array of downstream capabilities. The company has a world-renowned reputation in delivering large-scale power generation and network projects, construction and engineering for transport hubs, including ports, tunnels, airports and rail stations.

Environment

Royal HaskoningDHV has a robust sustainability policy always looking to protect and conserve our environment. We are proficient in environmental management systems and can undertake environmental and social impact assessments for any mining study, all compliant with the Equator Principles.

Water

Our diverse hydrogeological engineers cover groundwater resource assessment and aquifer modelling, monitoring programmes and mine water investigations; all vital components of a successful mine design. Working closely with our environmental specialists we also carry out water quality assessments as well as design and manage waste and tailings disposal.
