THYSSEN MINING’S VISION IS TO BE THE UNDERGROUND MINING CONTRACTOR OF CHOICE IN NORTH AMERICA.

To reach that goal, Thyssen Mining strives to continuously improve on safety, quality and cost effectiveness, while satisfying the needs of our clients, employees and shareholders.

OUR HISTORY

Thyssen Mining started in the early 1960’s in Saskatchewan’s potash mines under the name of Associated Mining Construction (AMC). Operations commenced with a contract to sink a shaft by means of the freezing technique and lining the shaft with cast iron tubbing.  In 2012, Thyssen Mining embarked and succeeded in sinking the first shaft in the United States utilizing ground freezing techniques.

OUR COMMITMENT

Thyssen Mining’s commitment is to meet or exceed our clients’ expectations by working safely, on time and within budget.  We achieve this by employing well-trained and qualified personnel, bringing the right team together to meet the clients’ requirements and by providing dedicated support and service to our projects.  The latter consists of site training and inspections by our safety personnel, prompt field service by our maintenance technicians, centralized human resources and purchasing services, technical support provided by our engineering department and daily interaction with Thyssen Mining senior management.
