Stantec to conduct mine design review and optimization for Eti Bakir

Global design firm to assist Turkey’s largest mining and metallurgy company


Global design firm Stantec has been selected to review and evaluate Eti Bakir’s mining facility in Siirt Province, Turkey. The mine has operated as an open pit (O/P) facility for several years. Stantec’s work will assist Eti Bakir, part of one of Turkey’s largest mining and metallurgy companies, to transition to an underground (U/G) mining operation.

Stantec’s Canadian mining business line will lead the project, with assistance on the ground from local Stantec team members in Istanbul.

“Our experience in underground mine design and related technical services is globally recognized,” says Dr. Murat Sarioglu, operations director for Stantec in Turkey. “It’s great to come together as a multidisciplinary team to support our clients locally with global expertise.”

Throughout 2019, Stantec mining experts will support Eti Baki as their new U/G mine moves through the project execution phase to being fully operational.  Stantec will evaluate and advise on the transition process through regular site visits and consultations with the goal of ensuring maximum efficiency throughout the process.

“Our team of mining experts will look at the overall operations process and performance, safety considerations, and opportunities to modify work plans. We will help Eti Bakir find the best path forward,” says Dr. Sarioglu.

Stantec has carried out several mining projects in Turkey over the past 20 years, including projects for Eti Bakir, Artmin, Eldorado, and First Quantum. With this project win, Stantec strengthens its Canadian and Turkish mining teams, increases its market share in Turkey, and continues to develop mining technical expertise in its Istanbul office
