Strategic metallurgy

Metallurgy is a critical part of any mining venture, but its strategic role is often poorly understood.

There has been a litany of projects that have failed because the metallurgy – or it's execution – was simply wrong.

Even the biggest companies, with all their internal procedures, have fallen foul of bad decisions surrounding their metallurgy.

Developing your metallurgical strategy, the capability that flows from it, and making sure it fits into your overall business plan, is fundamental to the success of a mining company.

Strategic Metallurgy has extensive hands-on experience at board level combined with a strong technical background.

We can provide a comprehensive strategic review of your metallurgical process, technical capability and the management and board decision making framework required to ensure a successful outcome. Contact us to discuss your requirements.

Ask yourself

Does your metallurgy fit your business model? Do you need a Board Level metallurgical review? Is your company struggling with new metallurgical technologies?
