About Precision Mining

Born out of a passion that mining could be done better.

Founded by experienced engineers who saw an opportunity to offer consulting and software options that merged traditional wisdom and techniques with the raw power, speed and capabilities of modern technology.

Experts in mining software

From design, scheduling, haulage and financial packages, if it’s been used in mining then we’ve used it too. Being fluent in all these software options means we can speak your language no matter what you’ve used before, and we understand the unique challenges each option presents.
