In November 2018 we celebrate 22 years of continually assisting the mining and resources sector. As experts in operational analysis and redesign, we have delivered business improvement services to open pit mining clients in platinum, gold, diamonds, copper, cobalt, phosphates, coal, fluorspar, manganese, iron ore, vanadium, PGM’s and chrome…


Tacmin’s core expertise brings multiple  years of construction experience in civil infrastructure and open-pit contract mining. Infrastructure construction experience ranges from, construction of dual carriageways, single carriages way, roads & township infrastructure, bridges & concrete structures to the construction of dams, railroads...


Tacmin’s core expertise has not only managed but studied, analysed and advised customers in all aspects of mobile earthmoving construction and open-pit mining equipment ranging from the smallest to top-end size since 1982. Initially in all aspects of asset management and maintenance as earthmoving and mining contractor…


First as project managers during construction of roads, dams, railroads, infrastructure and open-pit mines and then as consultants and project managers in a diverse range of mining disciplines, Tacmin’s project management capability provides the depth of the services required by our customers. Following numerous 3-5 year EPCM and...

our primary focus area

Mining project decision analysis,

asset management & maintenance

Project life-cycle modelling, decision-making, performance benchmarking

Our purpose is to assist mining companies with the planning, development, implementation and support of Mining Projects that will give cause to optimised, improved mining operations and where construction is required to assist with on-time and below budget completion.

Mining project decision, execution,

 consultancy and support

Not only is our ultimate goal to let your mining operation achieve efficiencies near or similar to autonomous mining, but to deliver this at a fraction of the cost associated with autonomy and should this be viable, pave the way to phase in autonomous solutions through cost savings realised.

Our Competitive Advantage

Since inception in 1996, Tacmin’s expertise has delivered consultancy and project management services to mines, worked along with mining engineers, geologists, mining contractors and mine owners of numerous multi-commodity mines across Africa; and developed Tacmin Madini to become leaders in mining project services who are best associated with:
