About Global Minerals Engineering

Global was formed by the Meineke family in 2006, with a company headquarters located in Hibbing, Minnesota, USA. Global was established to provide a full array of geologic, engineering and environmental services for the mining and mineral industry. The Global team participates as an equity partner in some mining projects, including exploration, mineral resource delineation and estimation, metallurgical process testing, flowsheet development, and feasibility for commercial development.

The Global team has tripled since 2006. We continue to carefully cultivate a team of industry experts who have experience in a wide range of mineral resource management processes, helping our Global customers keep projects moving forward. By maintaining a network of industry professionals, Global is always ready to provide the experience needed for specific projects.

The Global headquarters is located in the heart of the Mesabi Iron Range mining activity in Hibbing, Minnesota, with offices across the Midwest. We do technical and operating work in base metals, precious metals, iron ore, metallic iron, oil and natural gas for domestic and international clients.

We welcome the challenge to investigate, identify and solve geologic, mining, mineral processing issues and bottlenecks while working to find environmental solutions.
