|With a team including a number of former mine managers, Momentum combines its deep industry knowledge and functional expertise to help our mining clients identify and realise the most significant opportunities within their business.|
Australia’s mining sector is Australia’s principle source of economic growth and its high quality minerals and close proximity to Asia leverages Australia to the significant growth forecast in Asia. Many Australian mining companies are also world leaders in developing mining technology and innovation.
A combination of rapid growth in Australia’s mining sector and changes in the socio-political environment pose a number of significant short term challenges to mining companies, including:
- Extreme labour shortages leading to a war for talent
- Carbon tax and greenhouse gas emissions strategies
- Potential mining taxes
- Increasing regulatory requirements (land access, community consultation, environment approvals)
In addition, high mineral commodity prices make growth through organic and inorganic methods highly valuable.
Momentum has deep experience in a number of commodities across Australia including: iron ore, coal, gold, bauxite & alumina, copper and base metals, uranium, nickel, and mineral sands.
Momentum works with mining companies ranging from junior exploration companies through to the largest global companies. Our work has ranged from developing strategies (e.g., complex 50 year growth plans, war for talent strategies), improving operational performance (e.g., major business improvement programs, improving drilling and blasting efficiencies), and improving organisational effectiveness (e.g., performance management, systems and process redesign).
Our team includes several experienced mining engineers who have managed mining operations and completed detailed technical feasibility studies.
