Hawcroft & Copper Operations

Hawcroft provides risk management services to the mining industry, using our knowledge, perception and expertise to offer true foresight.

Copper - The Challenges

  1. Single or multiple sites with significant infrastructure
  2. Complex ore bodies with variable ore grades
  3. Different mass mining methods for surface or underground

Our Work

  1. We carry out copper reviews worldwide at many of the largest mines including the world’s two largest by reserve at Escondida in Chile & Cananea in Mexico
  2. At most sites our risk assessments are of the end-to-end operation – mining, heap leaches, processing, tailings storage, solvent extraction, electrowinning, smelting and refining, fire protection, utilities, transportation, ports and infrastructure
  3. We also assess new mine construction or mine expansion, whether surface or underground
  4. Our reports are all-encompassing or of a specific activity to include insurance risk surveys, construction risk reviews, asset criticality and specialty assessments of high or complex risks
