Re-defining mining, for a sustainable modern life

Our purpose 


 We count on smart innovation to bring an environmental, economic, and sustainable approach for the future of mining.

Smart innovation in mining protects the resources and nature, while providing the raw materials that our modern society continuously needs.  



Today, we are leading the mining technology industry, by providing the most accurate smart mining solutions. Our sensors allow mines around the world to use less water and less energy, while obtaining better and faster results. Moreover, we reduce waste rock dilution, tailings, and ore losses, significantly diminishing the environmental impact.

for more than
30 years 

At IMA Engineering, we combine knowledge, creativity, and smart innovation, so that we can all take advantage of the innovative technologies. While bringing a revolution in mining, IMA makes sure to put people, their lives, our planet, and its resources first. Because we know that progress should go hand in hand with sustainability.

the planet,
with innovations

Metals are essential for every aspect of life we cherish. They enable real-time communication, energy production, transportation, thus supporting our modern way of living. At IMA, we are working to make future mining sustainable and better use these valuable resources, with minimum impact.
