Our pool of consultants have an extensive background across a broad range of projects.  This cuts across most commodities and covers both underground and open pit operations.  Although our core experience base is the managment of study and due diligence work, we also have consultants with extensive EPCM type project managment as well as operational management experience.

Below is a selection of projects started over the last 12 months catagorised by mineral, country and type of project (Study Work, Due Dilligence, Detail Design or Operational Support).  This is not a complete list as some projects are excluded for confidentiality  reasons and some started more than 12 months ago and are on-going.  Previous projects are listed in the archive at the end of this list.
