Why our clients use our services

Technical & operational reviews

Among our Competent Persons for mine technical & operational reviews is the founding and principal partner at Tacmin (Pty) Ltd. He has practised his profession continuously since 1996 with 30 years of experience in the civil infrastructure construction and open-pit minerals industry, specialising in bringing open-pit mines to production as well as optimisation. The CP’s experience covers a broad range of disciplines in construction management, mine engineering, mine planning, scheduling, costing, as well as mining and project management. He has gained multiple years of experience in infrastructure construction, environmental management, engineering, production, enrichment, and mining contracting in platinum, gold, copper, cobalt, phosphates, coal, fluorspar, manganese, iron ore, vanadium and chrome. He is a Fellow of the AusIMM with overall responsibility for all technical due diligence, feasibility studies and project evaluations carried out by TACMIN and have 22 years of experience in those above.

Interactive link between

Mine project lifecycle modelling

TACMIN’s project life-cycle models provide for an interactive link between estimating, project controls and enterprise accounting. Our project life-cycle models share critical information in real time that provides for the effective implementation of the project up to completion and its delivery. In the initial phase, before the project execution, we develop a thorough understanding of the project, outline a strategy, and assemble a strong owners team to ensure that every aspect of your project is planned out. Your project will meet all your objectives with regards to scope, quality, performance and safety while adhering to your time and budget requirements.

Mining analysis, decision & benchmark services

Currently, there are no standard procedures that would sufficiently cover all the multiple-criteria requirements along with a breakdown into the preliminary and main assessment. However, at Tacmin the entire foundation required was created, such as definitions of requirements to an assessment method, selection and accurate description of the various assessment criteria and classification of the target system for typical mining project decision-making problems. Attributed to decades of experience gained by our multi-disciplinary expertise in all aspects of mining with the aid of Tacmin's business performance improvement system has enabled us to develop a well-established decision analysis process integrated into the overall project management process, vital for improving project performance. Aforesaid process has assisted numerous mining executives and boards from junior and major listed mining companies to take informed decision for their mines in Africa. [For case studies click here]

Project life-cycle model training & support

Decades of working with the owner's team in mining consultancy and project management roles have given our expertise a thorough understanding of the urgency in executing specialist services required during decision making or mining project implementation. Project life-cycle model training and consultancy support is something we pride ourselves on, and our Users are a testament to this. The interaction between Users and project lifecycle model designers is encouraged to ensure the solutions stay abreast of User requirements and developing industry trends.

Mine Readiness Management System (MRMS)

Tacmin Australia, a Perth-based boutique project management consultancy that offers expertise and resources in delivering mine readiness, asset management and digital transformation services to mining, engineering and business consulting firms, has launched its Mine Readiness Management System (MRMS), a cloud-based application designed to improve the efficiency and cost of owner or contract mining operations.

 

The MRMS application which has been applied since 1996 by its sister company during operations improvement assignments on dozens of multi-commodity mines across Africa, is designed to manage, track, and enhance operational readiness. The MRMS aligns activity-based mine production schedules with the resources required to execute the same and provides for optimisation, efficiency and cost control of activities and resources simultaneously. The nett effect, it allows Operational Readiness teams to collaborate, manage, and perform at whole new levels of efficiency and effectiveness enabling the project team and its partners to get more predictable results and achieve what the business case intended.
