After 25 years of supporting Russian clients from its global offices, AMC Consultants (AMC) is pleased to announce the opening of its ninth office, this time in Moscow. To be led by Mark Chesher, a mining engineer with more than 35 years experience, the office will provide a gateway for clients in Russia to access the global AMC team.
To mark this important step, AMC hosted an opening ceremony in early October to coincide with its presence at MINEX Russia. The Ambassador of Australia to the Russian Federation, Peter Tesch, joined AMC’s Managing Director, Patrick Smith, and other senior AMC figures in officially opening the office.
“The opening of this office reflects the growing importance of Russia in AMC’s business model and, in our view, the importance of Russia in the global economy and the mineral resources sector. After completing 88 jobs in Russia, 55 in last four years alone, we are confident in our ability to positively contribute to the development of the Russian mining industry” said AMC’s Managing Director, Patrick Smith. “We are very fortunate to have a mining engineer of Mark Chesher’s competence and experience leading this office and look forward to continuing to help clients unearth a smarter way to mine from Moscow”.
Clients, partners, suppliers, industry bodies, magazines and journals were present at the opening event and welcomed AMC’s new permanent presence.
“It was a pleasure to support the opening of the AMC Moscow office. There is a growing global awareness of Australian resource industry technology and experience and AMC opening a representative office in Moscow is further evidence of the trend. I wish them every success in their venture” said the Ambassador of Australia to the Russian Federation, Peter Tesch.
As part of its Mine Smarter series for the MINEX Russia 2018 Conference, AMC treated attendees to its usual masterclass and podium presentation, this year on the topic of geometallurgy. Mark Chesher (Technical Director – Russia), Yevgeniy Antonov (Principal Mining Engineer), and Rob Chesher (General Manager, Brisbane), and Ian Lipton (Principal Geologist and Geometallurgy Practice Leader), presented at the masterclass with the latter also presenting at the podium.
