Mining consultancy SRK has announced it is merging its U.S. practice with Mine Ventilation Services (MVS), a firm that specializes in underground engineering and ventilation solutions.
“Over the past five years MVS has enjoyed a successful working relationship with SRK on many underground mine design projects in North America, such as the Twin Metals, Kemess, Nemisa and Miraflores projects,” MVS’s president and CEO Keith Wallace said.
“For the next five years,” SRK president John Tinucci said, “our key business goals include integrating MVS and SRK underground mining expertise on a regional and global basis so as to help our clients operate more efficiently and reduce their costs.”
MVS was founded in 1983 and is headquartered in Clovis, Calif.
SRK was established in 1974 in South Africa. Today the firm employs more than 1,400 people in 45 offices, on six continents.
