Commodity price fluctuations; shareholder values; operating and capital costs; resource nationalism; regulatory requirements; safety, environmental and community concerns; mining in diverse climatic conditions and remote locations, among others, are matters that are adversely impacting companies’ productivity or restraining their ability to operate profitably.
In addition, whether juniors mine for base or precious metals or global resource corporations engage in the exploration, extraction, and processing of minerals or in the reclamation of a mine site, each is confronted with very distinct issues and complexities.
Yesterday’s thinking and traditional ways of doing business to address these challenges and achieve cost-effective mining operations no longer suffice. So what can WSP do to help?
