Team Profile


MPS supports its process engineering capability with the full suite of discipline engineers and designers involved in mineral process plant design, from civil / structural engineering through mechanical and piping as well as electrical and control systems design. A number of our engineers are registered with the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) and can therefore accept complete design responsibility for the work undertaken by MPS.

MPS combines its engineering and design capability with proven project management skills, specifically adapted to the smaller project environment. Our project managers have taken various projects through the typical project life-cycle:

  • Conceptual studies, involving close co-operation with the client’s exploration team
  • Pre-feasibility studies (PFS)
  • Feasibility studies, including definitive feasibility studies (DFS)
  • Front-end Engineering and Design (FEED) to allow for the compilation of a control budget estimate (CBE) against which the project can be measured and controlled
  • Project implementation and commissioning

These contracting options can be undertaken on either a lump sum basis or alternatively on a fully rates and cost reimbursable basis. MPS, being a smaller engineering company, is also flexible enough to consider hybrid strategies for project execution, if the client so wishes.

MPS’s management team has a direct involvement in the organisation. Combining this direct involvement with our streamlined processes and procedures, allows MPS to operate on a low overhead structure. Given that we understand the complexities and challenges associated with start-up enterprises, we have elected to pass the benefit of our low overheads directly to our clients.

MPS has furthermore established relationships with a construction company, which enables us to provide construction related services, as well as with project financiers who can facilitate project financing for our clients. These relationships therefore allow MPS to provide integrated solutions to our clients, tailored to their specific project needs.
