Independent consulting group, Mineral Engineering Technical Services (METS), will host a feature display at the AIMEX 2013 exhibition in Sydney. The Asia-Pacific’s International Mining Exhibition (AIMEX) will be held at Olympic Park from August 20-23.
METS has confirmed it will host an expanded range of engineering services and training courses for the mining, oil and gas industries at the event. The company’s mineral processing engineering expertise has been expanded following the recent acquisition of CDMS Consulting Engineers, a provider of mechanical design, structural design and design verification.
CDMS provides services including mechanical and structural engineering design, engineering design verification, fitness-for-service assessments, product development, project management, design of fabrication and construction aids, and expert witness assistance.
These services complement the company’s established mineral processing testing and interpretation, civil and structural engineering design services, as well as its People for Plants labour hire service.
“Pooling our expertise has meant a wider range of service offerings,” says METS’ director Damian Connelly. “Visitors to our AIMEX stand can find out about our comprehensive range of engineering services that can add value at any stage of a mining operation’s lifecycle.”
Mineral processing, mineral project economics, water management, and metallurgy for non-metallurgists are also part of the Perth-based company’s training program. The new half-day courses and training packages cover subjects ranging from process plan design to gold extraction, and visitors to the METS stand at AIMEX will be in the running to win a one-day training course of choice.
