Where can you find a mining team of geologists and engineers that really knows about coal? People who talk your language (“coal and seams” not “ore and veins”) and understand your issues – helping you to develop mines that are well designed and planned, safe and productive, and that deliver the best possible value?

Our specialised coal mining team has a proven track record of successful, high profile projects in assessing resources and reserves, supporting the development of new mines, extending existing mines, providing specialist advice for gas and roof control, designing opencast and underground coal faces, and improving development potential.

Our operational practitioners are used to managing coal exploration and developing coal resource models, evaluating methane risk and designing control measures, planning and designing production options including shearer and plow longwall installations and room and pillar multi entry workings, spontaneous combustion prevention and control, assessing roof support design and monitoring, identifying water control issues, and maximising run of mine production.

Our coal experts have worked across the world from UK to Ukraine and Siberia to South Africa. We’re ready to help with anything from conceptual mine designs through to feasibility studies, exploration drilling and analysis, mine planning, closure, due diligence for potential investors, and Competent Persons Reporting for mining companies.
