SNC-Lavalin has acquired a mining engineering firm in Brazil. Minerconsult Engenharia is a multidisciplinary engineering firm of about 1,000 professionals based in Belo Horizonte, the centre of mining and metallurgical engineering activities in Brazil.
Minerconsult is a 17-year old consulting engineering firm that has expertise in materials handling, gold, copper iron, nickel and bauxite mining from conceptual studies to start-up.
SNC-Lavalin and Minerconsult have partnered previously on several projects, including the ongoing work on a US $100-million contract with Anglo American Brasil Ltda for a greenfield ferro-nickel plant near Barro Alto, 170 kilometres to the northwest of Brasilia.
