Technical services partner

TacminMadini Australia, an Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) company, has its roots in Tacmin, a company established in 1996 in South Africa by Sarel Blaauw. Blaauw, a former civils and mining contractor, recognized the need for a more holistic approach to mining projects. This vision led to the expansion of the company to Australia in 2018, with the establishment of TacminMadini Australia, headquartered in Adelaide. The expansion to Australia marked a significant milestone for the company, leading to a restructuring of its operations. The engineering expertise from Tacmin was incorporated into TacminMadini Australia, allowing the company to continue providing Engineering and Procurement services as before. This restructuring has enabled TacminMadini Australia to adopt a more focused approach in Engineering and Construction, thereby enhancing its ability to deliver high-quality solutions for its clients.

Insights & News

By focusing on the geological structure, miners can optimise resource extraction by ensuring that high-grade ore is not left behind or diluted. This can improve resource efficiency, reduce waste, and increase profitability. Moreover, geological structure mining promotes a more sustainable approach to resource extraction. By reducing waste and improving resource efficiency, this method can also help minimise the environmental impact of mining operations.
