MEC Mining bolsters Australia growth prospects with IGMS buy

MEC Mining, the Brisbane- and Perth-based mining consultancy, has bolstered its growing capabilities with the acquisition of Western Australia’s Integrated Geological Mining Services (IGMS).

Fremantle-based consultancy IGMS provides dedicated services to the resources industry and covers all aspects of exploration and mining activities, according to MEC. It will now support MEC’s expansion into the west, providing a multitude of bespoke services.

Christofer Catania, MEC’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “IGMS has already built a solid reputation across the resources sector, successfully consulting with clients on multi-commodity projects across Australia, Europe and Southeast Asia.

“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.”

IGMS Director and Senior Geologist, Mike Atkinson, said: “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.”

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, according to the company. Catania says the additional experience and complementary knowledge provided by IGMS will support MEC Mining in its mission to deliver unparalleled services to customers in the resources sector.
