Saudia Arabia
Al Khabra phosphate mine commissioning


Our team of specialist engineers provided consulting services to conduct the detailed engineering of the Al Khabra phosphate mine. The complex project included topographical and geological surveys, extensive drilling and laboratory tests, mineral processing and metallurgical studies, and financial modeling. Our team ensured that the project was completed within the budget and time frame.
The feasibility study technical report included evaluation of multiple mining methods for the extraction of the ore from the deposit. The report assessed site conditions for likely mineral reserves, infrastructure, and environmental impact. Based on the results of our research, we recommended the most cost-effective mining method that balanced cost and yield. In addition, our team provided advice on safety measures and regulatory requirements to help ensure a successful and sustainable project.
