MST also offer an online Customer Support Portal for all support related issues and questions.
Over a 25 year history of innovation and implementation, MST has amassed cumulative experience of underground mining, mining systems and operational processes that are matched by few others. With Nixon Communications now part of the MST, we have added surface mining and remote construction expertise, in particular long-line pipeline, rail and road.
MST’s most innovative minds come together in a central think-tank based in Sydney, Australia and includes a highly skilled team of research, development and engineering resources.
These resources can be brought to your business to identify technology and process based improvements and to quantify the impact on your business. MST consultants can analyse actual work time vs time on shift, trip cycles vs cycle times for production equipment, and many more operational and business pains can be uncovered, quantified and addressed through our combined expertise.

MST has adopted and adapts the PMBoK Project Methodology for all projects with a focus on outcomes and project schedule. The project process encompasses four steps that every project needs to ensure success:
Discovery – confirmation of the scope and outcomes sought, the boundaries of the work, the budget and the timeframe.
Planning – the detailed design phase in which the high level design from the proposal is fleshed out into a document or series of documents from which the solution can be built, including all meta-data, logical and physical designs, test plans and test schedules, and not least, an agreement of the end point.
Execution – which is split in order into the following phases:
- Staging and packing
- Installation and implementation
- Commissioning and testing
- Training and handover
Closure – all parties agree that the project can conclude, where possible a Project Review is held and lessons learned are carried forward.
MST pay particular attention to the discovery and detailed design phases to allow our highly skilled and qualified field resources the best possible opportunity to deliver a quality outcome for our customers.

Managed Services for virtually any asset, virtually anywhere
Managed Services helps our customers to address total cost of output. MST’s Managed Services started as a service that is still widely used today; the Analogue Simplex two-way VHF and UHF Radio Systems. Applied as a temporary voice communication solution during the construction of remote pipelines, railroads and roads, the services suit almost any temporary remote work site.
MST have established the means to provide managed camp solutions targeted toward shorter-term camps for the needs of construction businesses, from 2-way VHF and UHF, to complete voice, data and entertainment systems, and our team have a broad and competent knowledge of equipment, including solar infrastructure, networks, satellite, and environmental monitoring.
MST understand that every business, every mine and every site have different driving needs and we offer tailored solutions to address those needs.
