Why do other engineering studies cost so much and have no focus on value creation?

They shouldn’t. At BESTECH, we are not a “cookie cutter” underground mine design team.
We are innovative and resourceful, with the practical experience to look at the best mining options to deliver superior value to your project.

Planning the mines
of the future today.

We understand that funding is what drives this industry. Funding comes from the project value and to maximize project value, miners of all sizes – juniors to established players – need a company like BESTECH to help them tell their story and to tell it objectively and effectively.

We start with an open mind, build on your data, and do what’s right for your project. Every project is treated as a unique project, with unique requirements and a unique process to mine. We promote simple designs that are faster to build, more economic to build and operate, and easier to fund.

Faster to build, more economic to operate and easier to fund.

We are not like the others.
We are the face of change.

We know mining. Our expert team has deep mining roots and is leading the charge towards mining 4.0.

We take the whole mine, end to end perspective: Build, Operate, Close, and Reclaim.

Mining is a team sport and we are on your team. We really care about your project and we take huge pride in what we deliver.

We deliver customized studies & innovative designs quicker and less costly than the typical old school firms

Planning the mines of the future today…

We understand that capital funding is what drives this industry and miners of all sizes – juniors to established players – need proven capable, qualified engineering companies to help them tell their story and build their projects by working together objectively, quickly, and effectively. We start with an open mind, build on your data, and then do what’s right for you

We are not like the others.
We build appropriate high technology early into our mine designs not only to create better projects, but to enhance financial returns.

We are the face of change.
We don’t just accept the status quo of designing and building mines based on historic technology. We like to challenge that thinking and produce innovative mine designs using the latest concepts and tech-nology that is best for the project.

We know mining.
Our expert team has deep mining roots and is leading the charge towards mining 4.0. Our vocabulary includes agile, lean, scrum and adaptive.

We take a whole mine view
From identifying & qualifying mineral sources, to designing & building mining projects, to operations methodology, and finally to closure and reclamation plans. We can do it all. Mining is a team sport and we are on your team. We care about your project and take huge pride in what we deliver to you.

We provide a comprehensive view that you can trust and build your operation and future on. This approach considers environmental, human resources, safety, indigenous relations, and license to operate at every stage of planning to maximize the mining project’s social value.
