Contract Metallurgical Operations

This is the core function and focus of the Company. The team has extensive experience in the evaluation of such projects, from greenfields to plant construction, and has a wealth of experience in the operational management of such projects, including maintenance, forecasting, SHE aspects, client liaison, optimisation of the project, etc.

Process design

The team have all had experience in design work in various spheres in the industry. When the practical experience and knowledge of the team is combined with this design experience, then a practical, cost-effective plant is the result. The plants also cater for the problems faced by the operator, and allow for ease of maintenance.


Feasibility studies, due diligence, etc

The team has carried out a number of these on behalf of various clients, and often included testwork, utilising the available metallurgical laboratories, as appropriate. The team is able to provide both the technical and the operational knowledge into the report. This operational knowledge is often lacking in many of the companies which concentrate on such work.

Plant and project optimisation

Again the depth of the operational experience vested within the company allows efficient evaluation of a client plant and practical, effective recommendations can be made.

Project & Construction management / plant modifications

MRD can project manage the complete design and/or construction of small, medium or large projects and plant modifications. The types of Contracts can vary from EPCM (Engineer, Procure, Construction Management) right through to BOOT (Build, Own, Operate & Transfer). The operational experience within MRD is also utilised to ensure that the plant operator will have a practical plant that is operator and maintenance friendly
