MWH MiningA Mining Services and Consulting Company for a Growing World

MWH, now part of Stantec, offers the experience and knowledge to help mining companies meet the diverse, and sometimes difficult technical challenges unique to their industry in a practical and reliable manner. We assist our clients as they balance operational efficiency with the requirements of good stewardship, environmental sustainability, and their regulatory requirements. We consistently maintain a focus on quality, safety, and sustainability.

From sustainable water management and natural resources engineering to mine remediation and closure, MWH provides comprehensive consulting, engineering, construction, quality assurance, and program management services to the mining industry around the world. As a leading mining consulting firm, we apply our global expertise and knowledge to assist the world’s largest mining companies with their environmental, water, waste management, and infrastructure projects. We bring value throughout the mine life cycle through our innovative solutions, as well as vast global industry knowledge of all stages of mining operations. Our strong culture of project management is supported by proven cost, schedule and quality control systems.

We appreciate that mining companies are now mining ever lower ore grades and understand the constraints – water, power, costs and social license – that this creates. MWH is at the forefront of making smart use of water within the sector. We have proven that well-planned site water management can be sustainable, environmentally-friendly and cost effective, and sometimes that deciding component of a mine’s success, as the industry and the world strives to balance the use of the Earth’s resources with ecologically sound practices.
