Our Project Managers

Our project managers take a risk-managed approach to lead and deliver projects that ensure communication and stakeholder management is prioritised with minimal impact on operations in mining environments and the community for government authorities.

The project managers are supported by technical design expertise, operational experience and training capability as required from the corporate office.

Clients can benefit from experienced project managers with a wide variety of backgrounds including studies, planning, engineering, construction, operations, and delivery to ensure that the right fit is met for their project. All client projects are completed applying internal quality and safety system to ensure a high standard outcome.

MEC Mining understands and addresses the client’s desire to identify, investigate and implement value optimisation opportunities and refined engineering effort to deliver the optimum business outcomes whilst managing project risk, schedule, and cost impacts.

Our Project Management Framework

MEC Mining implements the latest Global Standard Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) principles to deliver projects for their clients. This dynamic approach implements a hybrid of predicative waterfall and adaptive agile project management methodologies. This not only enables MEC Mining to meet clients demand for on scope, on budget and on schedule for projects but focuses on continually adding value throughout project lifecycle thus maximising benefits for the organisation.

MEC Mining has experienced project managers who have delivered projects for mining, government, and private industry clients. We are actively engaged in maintaining and developing our project management skills to align with industry trends and have proven experience servicing clients in studies, front end engineering design (FEED), procurement, and in the execution of projects in both mining and infrastructure.

Blackwater Mine is a part of BMA, the 50:50 joint venture between BHP and Mitsubishi Development. MEC undertook a Maintenance Capacity Identification Study to assess existing and recommend future mine industrial area infrastructure requirements to meet long term business value drivers.

Broadmeadow Mine is a longwall underground coal operation where coal is processed jointly with coal from Goonyella Riverside. MEC supported the Southern Vent and Access Selection/ Definition study that identified an additional vent shaft and drift required to address ventilation requirements for extending the mine operations to meet the design life.

MEC supported the Broadmeadow Mine Shaft 3A combined identification, selection, and definition study for the new vent shaft 3A identified through the Southern Ventilation and Access Study as being required earlier to meet ventilation requirements to continue underground mining operations in accordance with the mine plan.

Saraji Mine is an open coal mine located near Dysart and is one of Australia’s largest mines by recoverable coal reserves. MEC supported site investigation works for the Substation Replacement Selection Study that proposed the supply and installation of a new substation to meet safety and site requirements.

Goonyella Riverside Mine is an open cut coal mine that exports coal on the Goonyella Railway line to Hay Point, from where it’s sent to markets worldwide. MEC supported site investigation and study documentation for Product Coal Management Selection study that identified the preferred alternative to strengthening of existing conveyor tunnels to ensure increased design life for the proposed capacity increase to the stockpile.
