At AMC, our purpose is to unearth a smarter way.

We help mining leaders evaluate opportunities, solve hidden productivity challenges, and
improve performance across the mining cycle. Put another way, we help miners find smarter
ways to mine and unearth hidden business value.

And here’s how we’re different from other mining consultants:

Every report we produce is underpinned by our Smart Data System — the world’s most comprehensive site-level validated data. Our Smart Data System is filled with mining cost and productivity data across mining methods, commodity types, geographies, and more — collected and validated at site level to ensure accuracy.

This system enables us to rapidly benchmark and cross-check new data, providing an unprecedented level of insight and accuracy in our recommendations. It also drives our two world-leading cost modelling systems, which regularly deliver estimates within 5% of actuals.

Our Geometallurgical Assessment is a unique approach to process improvement that combines reports, letting us take a step back and assess your mine like the living, breathing ecosystem it is.

It combines what are typically three separate reports— geological, metallurgical, and mining engineering — into one, delivering a more holistic view that connects the dots to deliver step-change revenue increases of between 5–15%. Applied at pre-feasibility stage or earlier, we’re confident we can find closer to 50% or more.

Our Online Mining Intelligence™ works alongside you, providing data-driven advice that helps you understand where your next win is, fast.

How does it work? We start by accessing, cleansing, and analyzing your existing mine data against our industry benchmarks; then our technical team will monitor and provide recommendations for our in-house implementation team to deliver to you.

Recommendations long in theory and low in practicality destroy more value than they create. That’s why we only employ career miners with exceptional experience and the highest integrity.

People who understand both the art and science of mining, who won’t avoid the reality of the challenge — because while our data and systems are world-leading, it’s still our people who define us.
