Mr Zdenek Vesely Expert Witness
Mining EngineerVesely & Associates Pty LtdMining Engineer

Dennis Vesely has acted as a consultant in Construction Engineering since 1984 to clients that include project, civil and mining contractors, owners, design consulting firms, and other organisations. Services provided include first principle estimates of major, smaller or complicated projects to the mining and civil sectors, both in underground and surface works. Other related services from input into design, contractual matters, planning and project startups were also provided.
Projects include very long tunnels, deep mine shafts, open cut mines, river diversions, concrete and earth/rock dams, highways, concrete structures, hydroelectric works, marine works, railways, treatment plants, asset evaluation and the like. Plant and equipment evaluation, selection and operating costs are derived for equipment such as fast hard ground tunnel boring machines with continuous conveyors, slower shielded EPBM, pipe jacking, roadheaders, drill jumbos, large earthmoving plant, cranes, marine units; together with attendant service and associated equipment.
Various assignments include work on projects in all Australian States and several countries in Asia, the Pacific and Africa. Much of the overseas work has been conceptual in nature requiring practical definition for later stages in investigation, design and tender documentation.
After graduation, he worked with major civil and mining contractors beginning with field work such as the last major Talbingo Dam in the Snowy Mountains Scheme, the St Lawrence Seaway Canal in Canada, railway tunnels in Melbourne and Sydney, bridges and other projects. Field and project engineer positions lead to that of project manager. Later within head office of contractor organisations, the position varied from planner through to chief estimator. The work continued on projects such as deep shafts and declines, tunnels, cable-stayed bridges, power stations in Australia and overseas.
He has a particular interest in putting projects together technically, commercially and with good rapport with his fellow participants in management, designers and field workers.
He is a member of AUCTA that is jointly sponsored by AusIMM and IEA.
