Global Resource Engineering: Worldwide Mine Consulting

While other firms are divesting from their mining practice and losing capability in this challenging market, Global Resource Engineering continues to expand our service and talent.

Global Resource Engineering Ltd. (“GRE” or the “Company”) and Lane and Associates (“L&A”) today announced that they have reached an agreement to merge, creating a world-class mine engineering consulting company. Larry Breckenridge, Chris Chapman, Kevin Gunesch, and Terre Lane will lead the combined company as equal partners. The Company will continue to be named Global Resource Engineering and to be headquartered in Denver, Colorado.

Thanks to the merger, GRE offers clients a perfect alternative to large consulting companies. The merged Company still brings small-firm service to developing mine projects, but with greater depth and breadth of experience. For mines already in production, GRE offers a skilled team with construction and operations expertise who can apply innovative ideas to optimize performance and profits.

GRE was named by the Denver Business Journal as the fastest-growing private company in 2013. From 2010 to 2012, the Company grew more than 600 percent, and today’s announcement is expected to increase growth further.

Larry Breckenridge, principal with GRE, said, “Our clients have been requesting the skills and expertise that L&A brings to GRE. While other firms are divesting from their mining practice and losing capability in this challenging market, GRE continues to expand our service and talent.”

Terre Lane, president of L&A, added, “This merger maximizes the strengths of our two companies, and will be a tremendous advantage in supporting clients worldwide. The focus of GRE will be to reaffirm to our clients, one success at a time, that engineering studies add value to their projects.”

GRE assures clients that the merger will be comprehensive and seamless. The integration is expected to be complete in May 2014.
