Mining and Minerals Capabilities

Jacobs is actively involved in a number of major resources projects as well as assisting mining customers in their early phase development of their projects. Having worked on project sites on nearly every continent, we have substantial experience in building and sustaining large- and small-scale mining and minerals projects. These diverse services are often delivered in remote or extreme locations. We also have the global resources to extend into a large program of work to support the infrastructure requirements for a project.

At Jacobs, we leverage our unique technical engineering capability, integrating resources from our regional centres, to deliver high value engineering solutions to our global clients. We have experience in and effective tools for utilizing multiple offices across different time-zones to deliver major projects efficiently.

Through our sourcing hubs we use our size and our procurement and capital cost estimating experience to achieve best value sourcing: both with respect to price versus quality and performance and, delivery times and other conditions.
