TAU Mining was founded back in the 1990s as a private consulting firm that offered mining services.

Thanks to its successful consultations, the company was able to grow its business and start mining operations in the early 2000s, partnering with major players in the industry such as BHP Billiton and AngloAmerican.

Over time, TAU Mining acquired more equipment and expanded its portfolio, which enabled the company to undertake larger and more complex projects. Fast forward to 2009, TAU Mining began providing a full range of mining operations and implementing large-scale projects.

Our present

Over the last two years, our company has undergone significant changes.
