Almost every mine today makes use of some kind of operations control centre that makes it possible to remotely monitor, measure, and control mining operations. And – without an appropriately designed control room – safe high-speed mechanized mining would neither be practical nor commercially viable. This week’s Blog provides a glance into some best practice in control room construction, equipping, and processes.
When it comes to pumping slurry, there can be very few applications that are more challenging than the hydro-transport of heavy duty slurries in oil sands production.

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Western Canadian oil and gas industry faced daunting challenges, challenges that the coronavirus has only amplified. This week’s Blog examines the importance of the Canadian Oil and Gas sector and then takes a look into what the future of this vital economic driver may hold.
Organizations of all types are continuing to evaluate the new reality of work and the future of their businesses. This is particularly true for the mining industry, as its employees begin to make their way back to physical mines where health and safety will be, as always, of the utmost importance. This week’s Blog discusses the steps that are required for mining companies to return back to ‘normal’ and ensuring that trust is built during a transition that was not anticipated or planned for.
One of the strongest arguments for implementing a preventative maintenance program in any facility is the fact that it minimizes interruptions to production by scheduling the turning of wrenches in the facility. A successful and effective preventative maintenance (PM) strategy keeps machines running, infrastructure sound, and serves the entire facility on a scheduled and purpose driven timeline. This week’s Blog shows us how to – in eight steps – properly implement a preventative maintenance strategy without having to bring your mining operations to a screeching halt.
Designers and architects spend a large portion of our day working with each other and clients, collaborating on projects.
