Global mining consultancy MEC Mining has acquired Integrated Geological Mining Services (IGMS), based in Fremantle, Western Australia, further bolstering its growing capabilities.
IGMS provides dedicated services to the resources industry and covers all aspects of exploration and mining activities.
The company will support Brisbane-based MEC in successfully expanding into WA, by providing a multitude of bespoke services.
MEC chief executive officer Christofer Catania said IGMS will be a formidable addition to the company’s growing portfolio.
“IGMS has already built a solid reputation across the resources sector, successfully consulting with clients on multi-commodity projects across Australia, Europe and South-East Asia,” Catania said.
“Their holistic approach to both exploration and mining dovetails neatly with the MEC ethos, and aligns with our customer-focused approach which values quality end-to-end services to maximise our clients’ returns.”
Catania was appointed as MEC Mining’s chief executive officer in November last year following a substantial 15 years with the company and said he is confident the acquisition will deliver immediate benefits to the market.
“Since the outset, IGMS has focused on the highest quality services, outcomes and professionalism, and adopted a collaborative team approach to all aspects of our work. These same values drive the team at MEC Mining,” IGMS director and senior geologist Mike Atkinson said.
Having already diversified and grown the company’s offerings with its geotechnical and advisory arm, MEC’s latest move signals significant benefits for mining clients.
With an already proven track record of highly successful project collaborations, Catania asserts the additional experience and complementary knowledge provided by IGMS will support MEC Mining in its mission to deliver unparalleled services to its customers in the resources sector.
