Strategic mining alliance  to clients’ benefit

SINGLE SOURCE Through the Redpath Mining and Stefanuti Stocks alliance, mining clients benefit from a single role-player taking responsibility for an entire project

Mine shaft sinking and mining services company Redpath Mining South Africa has entered into an alliance with multidisciplinary construction group Stefanutti Stocks, joining their complementary capabilities and services to enhance benefits to their clients.

“Redpath Mining has long recognised the benefits of building relationships with organisations whose innovative approach and unique perspectives expand on our own. “The shared vision between Redpath Mining and Stefanutti Stocks has resulted in a strategic mining alliance that will grow from strength to strength,” says Redpath Mining South Africa MD Ockert Douglas.

Other benefits to mining clients include a single role-player taking responsibility for an entire project, while all specialist skills sets, from design to construction and operation, provided by Redpath and Stefanutti Stocks, can be fully used. This single point of contact simplifies the client interface and simplifies the project-management process with the potential to be more cost effective.

Both companies have decades of mining sector experience in their fields and their combined capabilities are expected to result in a powerful alliance that offers clients a solution to a majority of mining projects, from remote greenfield mine development to significant expansion work at established mining sites.

Redpath’s mining services offering includes shaft sinking, mine development, contract mining, raiseboring, underground construction, engineering and technical services, as well as speciality services focusing on underground infrastructure.

Douglas points out that Redpath, backed by expertise and highly qualified personnel with the capacity to support any scope of work, has global experience, adaptability and good workmanship that has laid the foundation for the company to help lead the mining industry with new innovations in mining and safety practices.

Stefanutti Stocks’ construction capabilities encompass all aspects of above-ground mining infrastructure construction, including earthworks, civil construction, buildings, water treatment plants, pipelines, structural, mechanical, electrical, instrumentation and piping, and concrete rehabilitation. Its services to the sector also include contract mining, materials handling and tailings management.

“We are excited to be part of this alliance, as this has the potential to be a great asset to the Southern African mining industry, and we are looking forward to putting our combined forces into play,” says Stefanutti Stocks CEO Willie Meyburgh.
