Sargon Engineering provides services to clients worldwide in mining and minerals including base metals, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, industrial minerals, rare earths, coal, light alloys, precious metals and specialty metals.

We deliver competitive and comprehensive mine, processing and marketing packages at any stage of the project lifecycle. We provide a one-stop engineering service to ensure our clients’ project is complete and integrated – pit to port.

We provide the following comprehensive engineering solutions:

Process simulation

Process Simulation is our area of specialist expertise. We use Metsim or SysCAD modeling to determine the most productive and cost effective means for processing our client’s resource. We can provide process flow diagrams, piping & instrumentation diagrams, as well as mass, energy & water balances.

Mechanical Engineering service

Mechanical Engineering services include: equipment sizing and specification, piping and pumping systems design, tank & storage bin specification to relevant standards, materials handling system design covering conveyors, chutework, dust control, crushing and grinding, stockpiling and loadout.

Civil/Structural Engineering Services include rail, road and overland conveyor alignment using LiDAR data and 12D software to optimise cut and fill. We have the hydrological expertise to optimise water-course and run-off management and select placement of culverts, bridges, retaining walls. We use Space Gass to analyse structures under suitable load case conditions. We use SAFE to size foundations and suspended slabs.

State-of-the-art designing service

Sargon Engineering has an experienced design team, which is supplied with the most up-to-date design software. The drawing office is well-resourced and provides the expertise to design and detail equipment, piping, structures and materials handling systems. Sargon Engineering’s CAD platform is Microstation V8i. Graphics are produced in Visio, Illustrator and Photoshop.

Project Management services

Project Management services cover project scoping, definition & management, as well as planning, scheduling and cost control systems. We have the project development experience to produce, implement and monitor a realistic, logically consistent plan for all phases of project implementation. Primavera P6 is Sargon Engineering’s tool of choice for planning and scheduling. Man-hour tracking is done using Timepro web-based timesheeting. Our clients are informed of project earned value on a weekly basis.

Capital and operating cost estimating services

Sargon Engineering has developed an extensive cost estimating database, and can provide capital and operating cost estimates to a specified accuracy. Our estimates are informed by the latest data from recognised sources such as R2 Mining, CostMine and Rawlinsons. We are excellent at sizing equipment efficiently and ascertaining installation and labour costs.

Our comprehensive approach, drive for excellence, and wide project experience ensure that our services are delivered to the highest standards and to our clients’ complete satisfaction.
