What our clients say

I want to take this opportunity to thank-you personally Mort for excellent work and guidance during my time in Tennessee.  It has truly been a pleasure working with you and your AMC partners. I was especially appreciative of your audits and sign-offs.  I greatly appreciated your personal approach to auditing by mentoring and training.  I am sure all the guys did as well.  You have helped our staff grow and that is so critical to our industry.

Steve Konieczki, MTS Manager, Nyrstar Tennessee Mines

This has helped us to develop long-term plans for all our operations & also helped us to see the opportunities to enhance the operation performance with compare to other Global peers to get best value out of each operation.

LS Shekhawat, COO-Mines-HZL, Vedanta Resources Plc

The Damang operation has benefited from AMC’s expertise for over 10 years, and we were very comfortable in selecting AMC to assist with evaluating Damang’s future.

AMC approached the work with a high level of proficiency and professionalism, and provided innovative solutions that have enhanced the value of the operation. We have been particularly impressed with the output and timelines.

Alfred Baku, Executive Vice President & Head of West Africa, Gold Fields

AMC have successfully completed various projects for the Martabe Gold Mine over several years.  In my area of responsibility these include Mineral Resource estimations, reconciliation reviews, due diligence style reviews and public reporting.

AMC showed extraordinary levels of commitment to the success of these projects while maintaining their integrity and professional standards. I found AMC provided accurate and timely advice on both technical matters and the application of regulatory frameworks.

I commend the individual consultants I dealt with at AMC and thoroughly recommend AMC’s services.

Shawn Crispin, Chief Geologist, G-Resources

Iron Road Limited appointed AMC Consultants to review the mine design for its Central Eyre Iron Ore Project with a view to identify fatal flaws. The specific focus was on in-pit crushers, semi-mobile crushers, trucks, and excavators for the in-pit-crushing-and-conveying (IPCC) design. AMC also provided support to Iron Road in relation to CAPEX and OPEX estimates, and identified opportunities for improvement.

AMC provided a quick and accurate assessment, identified a number of opportunities to enhance the design, and added value to the project while mitigating technical risk. AMC was able to deliver the project within the required timeframe and budget estimate, demonstrating a high level of professionalism and technical competence.

Larry Ingle, General Manager, Iron Road Limited

The Sishen mining team delivered a 15% increase in ore production for 2014.

AMC’s expert knowledge in mine operations and planning was of great assistance in identifying significant opportunities that were ready for immediate implementation. AMC worked closely with the Sishen team in 2014 to assist in acting upon these opportunities. A highlight of AMC’s work was its involvement in strategically re-designing the mine extraction sequencing. This work has greatly assisted the increase in 2014 ore production, while enabling production levels to be sustained over the remaining life-of-mine schedule.

I would have no hesitation in recommending AMC’s services to any mine operator seeking real value delivery in these challenging market conditions.

Theunis Otto, Head of Mining, Kumba Iron Ore

AMC have been involved on a regular basis at UHG since 2010 and have been instrumental in training and mentoring local geotechnical staff with the expertise necessary to manage the challenging structural conditions on site. This has contributed substantially to the safety of our operation, with Mine Operations and Technical Services confident in the monitoring and controls in place.

Sam Bowles, Chief Operating Officer , Mongolian Mining Corporation

I had twice the opportunity to work with the AMC Mining Consultants Ltd. performing technical audits of our mining operations in Chile.

It is of great advantage to Anglo American that AMC Consultants has a wide range of mining expertise from exploration and evaluation of mineral resources through mine planning, mining schedule optimization to geotechnical assessments in both operational environments: open cast and underground mining.

Indeed, the AMC group met our expectations carrying out its work diligently, with enthusiasm and technical excellence. In the execution of works the company AMC was exceeding our expectation proposing solutions and assisting us with eagerness and commitment. The objectives and deadlines were always achieved.

Tomasz Wawruch, Mineral Resources Manager, Copper Division of Anglo American in Santiago, Chile.

Perilya operates two underground lead/zinc/silver mines in Broken Hill (NSW Australia). Southern Operations is a remnant operation targeting 1.5Mt per annum of ore. Potosi Operation is a brownfield operation targeting 0.4Mt per annum of ore.

In the period from 2008 to 2012 AMC Consultants annually reviewed the estimation of the Mineral Resource and Ore Reserve for Perilya’s Broken Hill Operations.

AMC’s scope was to provide an independent technical review of the Mineral Resource and Ore Reserve in terms of data quality, process, methodology and with a view to identifying any significant concerns or risks. To meet the scope AMC engaged with site personnel during the estimation process to ensure that there would be no unresolved issues at the time of public reporting, and that the estimates would be reportable in accordance with the JORC Code. Issues identified during the reviews were addressed during the process and recommendations for improvements were implemented in subsequent years. AMC provided constructive input to the estimation process, and assisted site personnel in their roles as Competent Persons.

AMC’s role was acknowledged in the public reporting of Perilya’s Mineral Resource and Ore Reserve. Perilya found AMC to be professional, competent and thorough in the provision of this service.

Justin Woodward, Mine Planning Superintendent, Perilya Broken Hill Limited

AMC Consultants has conducted independent Mineral Resource and Ore Reserve Reviews for Newcrest Mining Limited since 2006.

AMCs principal role is to provide confidence to the Newcrest board with respect to Newcrest’s public reporting of Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves and compliance with reporting codes.

In addition AMC provides management reports that comment on areas of improvement that could be addressed by Newcrest in estimating Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves.

Newcrest considers that AMC has conducted these reviews over a long period of time professionally and diligently and Newcrest considers that AMC contributes very positively to its corporate governance and its high professional standards.

Colin Moorhead, Executive General Manager Minerals, Newcrest Mining Limited

AMC’s Benchmarking Studies, in conjunction with their detailed Operational Analysis studies, at AngloGold Ashanti’s Continental African Region operations provided us with insights into the key drivers of open pit mining performance and the potential operating cost savings that could be realised. AMC were able to provide an independent analysis of the current and future cost bases for each operation. They provided valuable input to the AngloGold’s Mining Task Force Project.
