RSV has a significant reputation within the base metals industry for the delivery of the components required for the development of a complete mineral resource project.

RSV’s mining engineers have developed a well-defined methodology for mine access and mining method selection as well as a defined approach to mine design.  At the concept stage all mining methods are considered both qualitatively and quantitatively.  The methodology for mining method selection is universal across all commodities, including base metals.  RSV has in the past utilised this tool for its base metal projects, across all the phases of study.

Our process engineers have extensive comminution, flotation, mineral separation and general mineral processing capabilities.  Included in this capability is mineral processing of manganese, chrome, platinum group metals, lead and zinc. 

We have been involved in manganese projects with both major and junior mining houses such as BHP Billiton, Kalagadi Manganese and Segue Resources
