Revamping the mining industry with unique solutions…
Mining consulting has become a new hype for the successful execution of mining projects. This complex industry needs the guidance of expert mining consultants now when environmental regulations, political interference, corporate responsibility, and a lot more have come into the picture.
Acknowledging the increasing popularity of mining consultants at present, we have decided to feature one such reliable organization that is delivering outstanding mining consulting services to its diverse client bases across the industry.
Mining 360 Services is the name of the company under the spotlight and as we got a chance to interact with the Founder and Director of the company- Deepak Gaur, we came across some interesting facts and food for thought. We firmly believe that our global aficionado will find this narrative equally informative.
The humble beginnings
The founder of the Mining 360 services pursued consultancy as his passion which led him to embark upon a spectacular entrepreneurial venture. He is so much into guiding and creating value for people at the ground level. The consultancy services offered by them range from small mine owners to large corporations.
Never do they ever let go of an opportunity to learn something new. As per the dynamo, the journey has been quite exciting as I got to know the real challenges of small and mid-size owners. Since the recent changes in Mining Laws by Central Govt, there have been several opportunities for the latest technologies in the Mining Business.
The implementation of strict laws and rising energy costs force the mining community to be more efficient and productive for better sustainability. When it comes to quality consulting services, bridging a major gap between the current situation as well as sustainable business practices became essential which inspired the founder to start this venture.
While working in India after graduating from Mining Engineering in 2005, I found that the conditions of Indian Mines are not at par. It was much more labororiented. After having worked in Australia, it gave me huge insight into delivering quality services.
I always wanted to help the Mining companies in India, so that’s why I chose to start this organization where I can build a team of technical consultants and massively help the Mining industry, explained as he made an opening remark. Deepak Gaur Founder and Director
