Worldwide Project & Construction Management Services


Cementation is an underground mine contracting and engineering company providing mine development and production services to the mining sector worldwide. Completing projects safely and to the satisfaction of Clients is our measure of success.

We understand mine owners are looking for safe work, engineering that adds value, and a contractor willing to work with them, and together meet budget and schedule challenges head-on. Cementation is and has always been that contractor; our “best for project” philosophy embodies all of these concepts.

We believe engineering should be an integral part of the construction process and early contractor involvement can improve project constructability which in turn reduces project risk from a safety as well as a technical and commercial perspective. By combining engineering excellence and operating experience, Cementation delivers innovative design-build solutions.

There are five Cementation companies focused on underground mine development, all owned by Murray & Roberts, and each focused on a specific region with local expertise. Each of the five companies operate as a standalone operation, however, collectively they form the Murray & Roberts Underground Mining Platform, sharing global best practices and people expertise.

There is great synergy between the delivery approach of Cementation, Merit and Terra Nova Technologies. Focused on both surface and underground, our shared “best for project” philosophy that embodies safety, early involvement and a design-build approach makes our groups a natural fit.
