Thiess’ world-leading, tailored engineering solutions deliver a second-to-none processing capability

Processing excellence

We work with all facets of operations to identify the optimum product quality achievable from a direct feed type, maximising a mine’s economic benefits and optimising its product market value. Our processing teams collaborate with our mine design and operations teams to optimise forward, in terms of process quality, and optimise back, in terms of streamlined and integrated planning, scheduling and mine operations.

Crushing and beneficiation

Thiess is skilled in analysing the unique geology and quality of deposits, and factors such as yield range and likely environmental changes over a mine’s life, to achieve optimal solutions. Our processing operations and maintenance services span crushing systems, coal handling and preparation plants, mineral processing, and materials handling including fixed and mobile conveyor systems and overland systems.

Product handling and storage

Thiess offers a complete product handling solution for clients. Our team has extensive experience in managing raw and product material stockpiles for a wide range of commodities. We ensure strict management of blending, handling, and stockpile turnover and size, with careful logistics management to achieve the correct product quality and quantity to meet sale commitments.

Tailings management

Our tailings facilities are managed to operate effectively, with safe access and full environmental compliance. We have successfully designed and installed systems to manage rigorous environmental requirements. Our team is also skilled at improving the efficiency of tailings processes, including the use of blending and other methods to integrate and reduce processes.
