Life of Mine Engineering is a specialist civil/geotechnical engineering consultancy focused exclusively on the delivery of sustainable Tailings & Mine Waste management solutions.

Our appreciation of the mining project lifecycle was shaped by first working with regulatory clients in the cleanup and remediation of legacy mine waste sites where the outcomes of practices implemented by one generation become the responsibility of the next.  As such, we see sustainable Tailings & Mine Waste management solutions as those which meet both our clients’ immediate requirements and future obligations.

The mission of Life of Mine Engineering is to develop partnerships with select clients and complementary service providers to deliver superior client service and high quality solutions in compliance with relevant state guidelines and industry best practice, from concept to closure.
