Mine consulting thought differently.

About us

Alius was born from the idea of ​​offering a different approach.

Hence the choice of the Latin word Alius meaning « otherwise » or « different ». 

Through our experience on numerous mine sites and projects, our team of professionals offers pragmatic solutions to operational needs. Whether remotely or at the mine, we remain available to support our partners until the objectives are reached.
