Project Management Process

Project Management Process

​Dumas’ project management philosophy is that of total transparency, cooperation and collaboration between all project stakeholders, from project inception to completion.

‘Your Project, Our Expertise, Common Ground’ is not merely our tagline; it is our unwavering commitment to developing mutually beneficial relationships with our clients in the delivery of world-class underground mining services.

Dumas has a diverse team of mining professionals that are industry leaders in all facets of project management, ensuring that stakeholders are recognized, engaged in project delivery and that risks are identified, controlled and managed to project completion.

All projects undertaken by Dumas are subjected to a rigorous and exhaustive cost and scope estimation study, including a risk identification analysis.

Our project methodologies are designed through collaboration and consultation with our clients to arrive at the safest, most cost-effective approach to project construction, with clear focus on milestone and schedule adherence.

A key component is Dumas’ project management staff, which are adept at delivering all underground mining projects from the scoping study level to final commissioning, on schedule and within budget.

Dumas has a mature and robust risk management program, well developed project controls systems, and the ability to develop and provide a vast assemblage of project management monitoring and reporting tools to provide immediate insight into project performance metrics.

This includes reporting on key project indicators of physical and economical project performance through the complete life-cycle of an underground mining project.

Dumas Contracting has been an integral part of Hudbay’s mining team at our Lalor Mine. They have provided a full-service lateral and vertical development advance, construction and mechanical team that works closely with our people, embracing Hudbay’s core values and our “one team one vision” approach to work management. Lalor has transitioned from a base metal mine to a gold operation, and mining of the gold and copper-gold zones at current production rates would not have been possible without the full support of the Dumas team.
