WHAT WE DO

Ukwazi is a leading African-based specialist mining service provider, focused on leveraging technical and industry insight and expertise to drive commercial success and sector development.

Our technical engineering approach, combined with strong mining industry experience, allows for operational excellence, cost optimisation and continuous improvement.

Our Competencies

Ukwazi follows sound and proven technical and project management principles, based on relevant experience, a solid track record and industry best practice. The company comprises specialist teams, each focusing on a specific combination of commodity, and style of mineralisation and mining methods. Due to our specialist and niche approach, we can deliver high-quality projects within set parameters and timeframes, at a competitive cost.
