Rock Engineering & Slope Stability

SRK Consulting has extensive experience in both underground and open pit rock engineering, for projects involving precious and base metals, diamonds and industrial minerals on all continents. By integrating our expertise in rock mechanics with our understanding of the mining business, we aim to provide highly practical advice and solutions that ensure the success of your project.

Our team of engineers and geoscientists provide integrated rock engineering services for all stages of project from the initial investigation, through design up to the mine closure. Ground support design and optimization for severe conditions are our specialty. Stability and stress analyses are carried out using and state of the art numerical techniques where appropriate. We also assist in the design, implementation and optimization of monitoring systems, including the selection and procurement of instrumentation. Risk assessments and the identification of hazards are an integral part of the investigations.

We offer on site training in data acquisition, and we have produced standard operating procedures and manuals for several major clients. We also conduct safety audits and reviews.
