SRK Consulting has acquired US firm Mine Ventilation Services (MVS).
MVS reportedly specialises in underground mining engineering and ventilation.
“Over the past five years MVS has enjoyed a successful working relationship with SRK on many underground mine design projects in North America, such as the Twin Metals, Kemess, NEMISA, and Miraflores projects,” Keith Wallace, MVS president, said.
“Now, operating as a business unit of SRK Consulting (US) Inc., we look forward to continuing that collaboration by complementing the quality consulting services that SRK offers to the mining industry worldwide.”
According to SRK, at the now closed Homestake mine in South Dakota, it joined forces with MVS to help expand the mine’s underground presence on behalf of the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF), which is using the mine to search for Dark Matter.
No valuation was given on the deal.
