Thiess offers more than 50 years’ underground mining experience, having developed and operated some of the most complex underground mines in the Asia Pacific region.
Our underground history draws on the expertise of former organisations such as Eltin and HWE, alongside Thiess’ proven international leadership in mining services. We also partner with leading subcontractors to connect clients with specialist service delivery across all underground mining requirements, with the benefit of streamlined interfaces.
From narrow vein to large open stope extraction, across diverse ground conditions (including high-stress seismic environments), our team’s proven skills run deep.
Our underground capabilities include technical studies, mine engineering services, flexible operations and assets solutions, and environmental management including rehabilitation of old workings. From specific services such as shotcreting, through to technologies such as tele-remoting and real-time air monitoring, we tailor our capabilities to each mine to maximise efficiency and productivity with the utmost focus on safety.
