Planning and scheduling
Thiess’ mine planning and scheduling capability has been refined and tested over decades, offering mine owners greater certainty with less risk. We develop mine plans and schedules for greenfield and brownfield operations across the full suite of mining methodologies, specialising in economical mine planning through smart design, operational improvements, due diligence studies and strategic reviews.
Open cut and underground mining
Thiess’ core expertise spans open cut and underground mining operations. We have a reputation for scoping and delivering best-for-mine solutions and emphasising a flexible, collaborative, performance-driven service that meets operational needs today while achieving the lowest long-term lifecycle cost. Our experienced on-site mining teams access our extensive in-house technical and functional specialists. Whether a new mining operation, or a step change for an existing mine, we optimise results and empower ongoing success.
Drill and blast
Precise, tailored drill and blast operations lay the foundation for cost-effective mining. Thiess’ solutions are geared to maximise ore recovery, optimise productivity and production, and minimise costs. Our skilled engineering team uses the latest technology and innovations to design and execute best-practice results for our clients. From simple multi-tool excavation blasts, to complex blasts, we optimise blast results safely and consistently.
Continuous mining systems
Continuous mass mining equipment (CME) solutions deliver long-term cost advantages when traditional truck haulage profiles and planned mine lives exceed certain thresholds. Through the Thiess-RWE Joint Venture, we deliver the full suite of in-house services for open-pit CME as the only global, vendor-independent, full-service provider. These 24/7 high-volume solutions position mines for significant savings and improved productivity.
