Peter Evans

Senior Geotechnical Engineer
BEng (Geological) (Hons)
MEngSc (Mining Geomechanics)

Peter is a Geotechnical Engineer with more than 10 years of experience in the mining industry. Peter’s experience is primarily site based as an operational geotechnical engineer and has now joined the world of consulting with MineGeoTech. He has a broad range of experience covering the design, implementation and verification cycle of geotechnical work.
Peter has worked in multiple locations both in and outside of Australia with a focus on underground operations, particularly block cave projects. Open pit experience includes the design of in-pit cutbacks, design of an in-pit catch fence and wall monitoring using 3D photogrammetry.
Technical capabilities include:
  • Underground ground support design and implementation
  • Design of monitoring systems focused on solving geotechnical issues
  • Fibrecrete/shotcrete management – full life cycle processes covering cost and quality management
  • Pre-Feasibility and Feasibility studies of underground and open pit mines
  • Design and construction of large underground excavations (crushers, conveyor transfer stations)
  • Vertical excavations – Shaft sinking, raise boring, underground ore handling systems and pre-support  
  • Audit preparation, including internal and external audits such as DMP HIF Audits
  • Rock fall investigation and response plans
Peter’s recent experience covers site support supervising a team of geotechnical engineers, running daily site geotechnical operations and audit preparation in underground narrow vein back fill stoping operations. Work includes reviewing seismic activity in relation to blasting, review of ground support strategy for changing ground conditions, reviewing operational and technical manuals for paste backfill, monitoring pit movements using point cloud data analysis, ground support optimisation through controlled trials (bolting and grouting practices).
