Resources

Ongoing global demand for commodities, driven by emerging economies, will continue to apply pressure on the resources industry to mine, process and export these commodities, and at a competitive cost.

In addition, in order to maximise returns from low grade resources in competitive world markets, companies seek to optimise yields and capital investment, while minimising operational costs such as equipment and maintenance overheads.  

Aurecon is focused on assisting our clients through tailoring solutions that increase direct operating hours. Improving reliability and reducing maintenance through operational design solutions, is key.

Aurecon has delivered small start-up facilities through to major engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) projects, including bulk materials handling projects, mine, rail, seaboard import and export terminals, and associated port and marine facilities.

The beneficiation of minerals before export is also a major growth area which we are actively advising many clients in, including the cement market where we have particular expertise in silo and bin design. 

Utilising in-house multidisciplinary skills, Aurecon delivers a range of engineering services across the entire project lifecycle, including master planning, feasibility studies, engineering design, construction management, and operations and maintenance.
