Underground Engineering in Resources

Underground engineering in resources is a specialised discipline crucial for efficient and safe extraction. The discipline encompasses the design, construction, and maintenance of tunnels, shafts, and caverns, which serves to helps miners access valuable deposits deep underground. It plays a pivotal role in mining operations as it enables the extraction of minerals that would otherwise remain inaccessible. Additionally, underground engineering is vital for worker safety, as it facilitates stable and secure working environments.

SYSTRA Bamser specialises within underground engineering, employing cutting-edge technologies and methodologies to maximize resource recovery and minimize environmental impact while ensuring the safety and well-being of those working below ground.

SYSTRA Bamser is at the forefront of the clean energy transition. Being part of the SYSTRA group which includes SYSTRA SWS and SYSTRA Subterra, we have access to some of the leading experts in underground construction globally. For our clients, this means proven expertise and the capability to provide advisory and project management services throughout the lifecycle of the project.

Our Approach

SYSTRA provides technical services to the Australian resources industry through a team of experienced engineers and professionals.

Our point of difference for our resources clients lies in our civil tunnelling methods and technologies. We work with clients to maximise value attained through harnessing renewable energy or the efficient mining of mineral assets, providing planning, operational and project support on a short-medium-and long-term basis.

We continue to leverage our combined experiences in both the civil surface/tunnelling domain and the mining space to adapt techniques which have cross over potential such as the use of tunnel boring machines (TBMs) for hydroelectrical or mine development applications.
