I highly recommend Sedat Esen, a brilliant Engineer with a wealth of experience in mining. Sedat demonstrates frontline leadership in combination with an approachable and practical mind set to tackle any problems. I highly recommend his ability and services.

I worked closely with Sedat during my time at Cowal Gold Mine to deliver an in depth crest loss analysis project which was eventually published as a paper and presented at the Fragblast conference in Sydney. Sedat was a very diligent colleague who provided a well thought out methodology for the project which was both cost effective and fit for purpose. As a result of the project an increase in achieved catch bench widths was observed by making alterations to the blast designs as well as a cost saving in the reduction of blasting media used.

Sedat comes highly recommended in the field of technical drill and blast engineering. He delivered robust drill and blast plans to support the contract drill and blast operations for the mine site. His experience in electronic detonators also aided greatly in trialing this technology at the operation.

- Danny Millers, New Hope Coal

When I was working for Phelps Dodge Candelaria Mine in Chile, we worked with Sedat Esen to conduct a mine to mill project at our mine. Sedat was part of the consulting team and they did a comprehensive drill&blast audit, plant survey as well as simulated the entire operations using their models. The result was remarkable: approximately 15% SAG mill throughput increase. He is a great consultant who understands our needs, focusses on the results and delivers on-time. I strongly recommend him in your optimization projects.

- Freddy Alvarez, Phelps Dodge

I would highly recommend EMC to any mining company. They delivered excellent results to us: better fragmentation, increased dig rates, improved wall-control results, better plant performance (11% increased primary crusher throughput).

We have conducted first Mine to Mill project in Kazakhstan with Esen Mining Consulting. We have achieved significant excavator productivity, improved throughput and other benefits. EMC is a very professional company.

We are seeing immediate benefits with regards to circuit throughput. An upgrade of this circuit was conducted in 2009 and the plant was subsequently rated at 4.38 Mtpa. Indications are that we will now be capable of achieving 4.7 Mtpa. A quick calculation suggests an increase in value to the operation of approximately $400m over LOM
