Geotechnical, Tailings & Supervision Support Services

Ausenco’s experts provide end-to-end solutions, developing projects from conceptual study phase to closure, while offering expertise on tailings facilities, geotechnical engineering, and supervision support.

Each project has specific requirements, site conditions, and stakeholders, and needs a tailored solution. Our team brings a depth of geotechnical experience – from pit to port, our large tailings studies developed for various sized projects, materials, locations, and governance, have challenged us to find specific solutions to address any challenge. Our team is focused on providing customized solutions to address today’s requirements.

At Ausenco, we are focused on ESG and understand the importance that GISTM implementation has within the industry. This includes knowing the key role of governance on the lifecycle of tailings management, including closure. Our interdisciplinary team works together to find solutions that address both technical and economic challenges, as well as non-financial areas, that are part of the new global standard.
