Hawcroft & Gold Operations

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

Gold – The Challenges

  1. The occurrence and dispersed locations of ore bodies worldwide demand a huge variety in both the type and scale of mining operations
  2. Processing operations to extract finished metal can range from being very simple to very complex
  3. Robust chemical handing practices are required at every stage including in its transportation, storage, use and disposal including tailings disposition
  4. Potential environmental impacts can be significant and need thorough controls
  5. Artisanal mining in immediate proximity and security throughout the process

Our Work

  1. We work in some of the deepest underground mines and largest open pits
  2. At most sites our risk assessments are of the end-to-end operation – mining, leaching, all forms of processing and gold recovery, tailings storage, utilities, fire protection and security
  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
