Engineering consultancy Klohn Crippen Berger has opened a new office in Fredericton, New Brunswick.

This Fredericton office will support mining opportunities in the Maritimes and Quebec, as well as provide support to the firm’s other Canadian offices located in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Sudbury and Toronto.

The move comes at a time when exploration and mining in Eastern Canada is booming. According to S&P Global’s recent ‘Worldwide Mining Exploration Trends’ report, Canada accounts for 14% of global exploration spending, with a growing share (now ~40%) going to Ontario and Quebec. A report by Big Four firm PwC identified resurging commodity prices as the main driver for higher mining exploration spending.

Founded in 1951, the Canadian-origin engineering consulting firm supports clients with a range of mining services, including geoscience, environmental and engineering solutions. The company also supports customers with mine closure services – including end land use planning, risk analysis, mine waste management, cover design, hydrology, hydrogeology, geochemistry, biophysical, cultural heritage and social aspects. Among the mines Klohn Crippen Berger has provided its services to are Greens Creek Mine, Hidden Valley Mine, and Jackpine Mine. 

Established in 1951, Klohn Crippen Berger also supports engineering projects in the energy, transport, infrastructure and utilities sectors. 

Earlier this year, Klohn Crippen Berger opened a new space in York, England (UK) as an expansion to its global operations. The hub is the firm’s first in Europe, and has been tasked with capitalizing on opportunities in Europe and Africa. The initial focus of the York office will be on tailings dam design, geotechnical numerical modeling, seismic hazard assessments and dam safety assessments. 

The company’s operations in Asia is covered through its offices in Brisbane and Perth, Australia, while the locations in Belo Horizonte (Brazil) and Lima (Peru) oversee activities in Latin America.
