Resource Engineering & Industry Analysis

Founded in 1971 by a team of engineers and geologists, under the leadership of James Vale, AME has always been a bridge between technical evaluation and the market. This strategy remains in place as we are advisors, consultants and researchers on sites and projects.

In 1989, Shaun Browne took over the firm and AME is now led by a experienced and dedicated management team. Our technical specialists and economic experts are supported by Industry Directors, who each have a minimum of ten years experience within their specific sector.

Our technical specialists can help diagnose, quantify, measure productivity and assess performance across your operations.

We understand the challenges and opportunities of your industry and have developed detailed insights to help you make more informed strategic decisions.

We operate two major global research centres within an integrated global footprint of regional offices as a leader in technical knowledge for the energy, metals and mining industries.

At AME, we provide a suite of services that combines 45 years of industry and functional expertise with data, analytics, and software tools to help clients gain greater clarity in decision making and achieve significant long-term performance improvements.

The AME Research Method provides the exact equipment used at each site, its utilisation, the processes involved, and costs for each department. Our engineering method accurately benchmarks the industry and coupled with our demand research provides you with technical knowledge and market understanding.

This is the first step to delivering long-term performance improvement.

AME has harnessed Machine Learning to develop the most comprehensive company, government and technical database for engineering economics on resources.

Programmed to capture 100’s of billions of pages of pertinent engineering, production and associated financial work. This spring of knowledge drives our Big Data Management and the AME Research Method.

Using our site-by-site database, covering more than 15,000 sites, across 17 commodities, six continents and everything concerning extraction, transportion, benefication and refining, we can effectively evaluate your projects. Harnessing this database, our team will build benchmarks from the ground up with granular, detailed metrics.
