Why Tacmin Madini

OUR COMPETITIVE EDGE

Tacmin Madini’s core competencies, backed by three decades of construction, EPC, EPCM and PMC experience, has built an impressive portfolio of resolving tough challenges on remote hard rock open-pit mines and projects. Based on these experiences, we know what works and what does not work.

Multi-skilled expertise: Our firm only employs multi-skilled expertise and resulting from our low overhead cost structure, customers get double the value for money at industry standard fee rates. Notwithstanding our lean core, our company has successfully completed every assignment on time, and if required would draw from our associations with industry leading professionals.

Broad scope of mining practice: The breadth of our practice is one of our greatest strengths. It gives us the confidence to tackle virtually any kind of business or financial challenge - whether it involves evaluation, operations or improvement. By handling diverse assignments, we bring a fresh perspective to each new matter, formulating innovative ideas that may not occur to experts who confine their practice to discrete areas of mining.

Unsurpassed product solutions: Amongst our strengths are our unrivalled unique capability to switch in competing with any size of contract miner at a considerably cheaper design, build and operate approach to owner mining models. Aforesaid is further complimented by our unique turnkey aerial survey & mapping solutions capability, enabling us to monitor and track mining progress, health & safety as well environmental aspects via aerial surveys.

OUR PRODUCTS OUR STRENGTH

During two decades of enhancing and transferring of knowledge, Tacmin has always succeeded to supplement, never duplicate, but rather assist and empower management with the right skills, motivate and establish a culture which fosters a sense of responsibility towards optimal practices at any stage.

Evaluate & define

Tacmin Madini is one of a select few that, due to their in-depth knowledge of all aspects in open-pit mining, carries feasibility studies to implementation and operation. Additionally, our multi-commodity experience in open-pit mining ranges from coal, gold, manganese, PGM’s, vanadium, diamonds, phosphates, to chrome, copper, cobalt and iron ore.

Engineer & procure

Backed by three decades of experience gained, first as contractor and then as solutions provider to mining companies, have provided our expertise with considerable exposure and experience in fast and cost effective procurement of contractors and mining equipment. From mine engineering to enquiry documentation to contract agreements, all work is carried in-house thereby ensuring seamless implementation of contractual obligations between Parties.

Design, build & operate

Dealing with one contractor from design to procurement and operation, excludes the potential failure of non-conformance to mine design and plan during implementation. As a result of decades of equipment procurement experience gained, Tacmin assists mining customers to obtain structured finance or operating leases with value added services, such as service plans, managed maintenance, live tracking and operator training, hence reducing capital expenditure, optimizing cash flows, outsourcing risk of ownership thereby enabling the customer to focus on service delivery. During DBO contracts Tacmin provides manpower and assume full responsibility for design, operations, equipment and production.

Analyse & improve

Our core competencies comprise of expertise with many years of experience in analysing and investigating key indicators which may potentially give cause to less optimised practises. Bringing theory into practice, we believe that effective implementation is the backbone of our work: by developing high-performing teams, nurturing accountability at every level of your company, and bringing your employees’ talents and energy into perfect alignment with your corporate vision and strategy, we deliver meaningful bottom-line improvement. Guaranteed.

Monitor & maintain

Not only has the expansion into aerial surveys enabled Tacmin to offer assistance to survey departments on mines, but additionally Tacmin experts are capable of integrating aerial collected data into exploration, geology, mining, geotechnical and environmental disciplines. Aerial surveying and mapping technologies have been used for over 40 years to assist mining companies through all phases of a mine's life and support a diverse range of mining activities.

Photogrammetry software for effective construction and mining progress monitoring

Guaranteed on-time and on-budget ore and waste production.

Progress monitoring, a critical tool for successful construction and mining progress control, provides information on the present state of construction or mining, which can then be compared with the original plan. The comparison can be used in decision-making to control variations in project performance. However, current methods for acquiring and updating information on the progress of a project are inadequate for monitoring project progress effectively due to their high computational processing, cost and time requirements. Photogrammetry has the potential to provide information about construction and mining progress more efficiently, rapidly, and cost-effectively.

Successful project management requires monitoring project progress and comparing it with the originally planned schedule by identifying possible deviations between the actual and the expected project status. The first requirement for effective progress monitoring is the collection of large amounts of spatial data in a rapid and accurate manner. However, although the progress monitoring process, which includes measuring and managing project information during the construction / mining phase, is an important [read more]

Tacmin's survey solution assigned to remote project in Africa

XSTOL - the ultimate utility aircraft – cargo combined with aerial surveys

Servicing open-pit mining clients on remote locations in Africa is something that the Tacmin team has grown accustomed to. With almost two decades of experience in solutions and improvement assignments, Tacmin’s recent expansion into mine survey solutions are no different.

The main objective of Tacmin’s subsidiary is to act as the data collection arm of Tacmin Madini, with the specific intention to provide our customers with solutions which are founded on vast accurate and reliable aerial collected data. This periodic aerial solution includes month-end surveys, geological surveys, crisis prevention surveys and environmental surveys. Aforesaid which are delivered to clients as ortho-photos, maps, DTMs, volumetric calculations, models and point-cloud data.

On this mine, Tacmin was able to combine weekly aerial data collections with cargo transfers between the mine and a main city centre, enabling them to keep the cost of aerial data collection to a minimum. The Tacmin group of companies are passionate about delivering solutions with the specific focus to assist with improvement of operations and the environment.
Tacmin experts fully equipped with all the resources to deliver the data, support and know-how customers need.

Independent aerial data collection of vast areas, conversion, analysis and integration into industry recognised mine engineering software.

Their expansion into aerial survey technology backed by considerable experience gained in all aspects associated with open-pit mines and environmental improvement and their undisputable track record thereof, gave cause to Tacmin adopting a strategy to deliver on:
  • A specialised aerial surveying and mine engineering service which is unmatched by aerial surveying companies
  • Provide a service with improved accuracy – as good as, or better than the current services available to the industry;
  • Provide a price that is more affordable than the current service providers
  • Submission of processed results within 3 days from date of survey

Tacmin experts assist with on-time extraction of first ore

Slope, design and mine plan conformance monitoring

The main objective of this operational improvement assignment was focused on assisting the client to get mining production back on target in anticipation to not miss their Transnet allocation. At this stage the mining contractor had fallen 3 months behind on waste while target ore was nowhere in sight.

With a sub-outcrop of 60 meters below surface and a 20 meter clay layer between hard rock formations, conventional land surveys were inadequate to track mine design and planning conformance. Coupled with vigorous geotechnical investigation and ongoing slope geometry, Tacmin experts re-engineered the pit, reduced the size of the boxcut, re-designed in-pit ramps and re-positioned waste dumps.

Through consistent crisis prevention surveys of all mining aspects based upon considerable dense point cloud data, Tacmin experts could track progress and with timeous re-engineering were able to improve production and guide the mining contractor to extract first ore on time.

The mine is currently in steady state mining and has since never failed to achieve production targets.
