About The HeadRoom Initiative

With the aim of “nimble value delivery” always top-of-mind, we strive to continuously challenge both the industry and ourselves. Our capability and desire to go further and do better comes from an innate passion for mining, minerals processing, environmental management and engineering.

Our Services

Our experienced team has built an extensive project portfolio in mining, engineering, safety and health, processing, social labour planning, as well as environmental management.

To ensure cross-disciplinary capacity and meet the needs of our clients, we have aligned ourselves with experts in the following fields: design, fabrication and erection, advanced process control, geology, mine design, water management, environmental monitoring, mineral resource management, surveying, laboratory services, human resource management and multi-disciplinary research. As a team we undertake complete Due Diligence studies, as well as issue Competent Persons Reports. We also have a strategic alliance with Altrius Engineering Services for projects in or that may span Australasia and Africa.
