Welcome to Tamarack. We are procurement specialists led by global mining industry experts, here to innovate, collaborate and change the mining procurement landscape through group purchasing. We help mining companies conduct procurement that is streamlined, data-driven, cost-saving, creative and community building. We think it’s fun too.
This is mining procurement, done differently.

Our Solutions

Develop a roadmap to savings with bespoke consulting services. Tamarack deploys a team of experts to conduct spend analytics and drive measurable bottom-line improvement.  Strategic sourcing and ESG goal adherence are among the services that our members use to improve their performance and improve their outcomes. We tailor-fit our solutions to each challenge.


Our procurement services help mining companies fill personnel and expertise gaps and offer a seamless transition into our GPO savings.  We already have boots on the ground near you and we’re here to help.

Group Purchasing

The bedrock of group purchasing is negotiated volume pricing for members of the buying group. For Tamarack Mining Services, that’s just the beginning. 


You won’t find any random acts of procurement here – we build buying communities, grow demand with streamlined efficiencies, and foster a mining supply ecosystem that advances the needs of our member mining companies, matching them with world class suppliers who are vetted and ready to deliver.


Membership is free and starts with free spending analytics and benchmarking, followed by our data-driven recommendations and access to our contract library to select contracts that work for you.


Our approved suppliers are an important part of our community. Our buying group is a channel partner accelerator, and our members benefit from having the best suppliers from near and far including supplier partners from our diversity and innovation program that offer tailored solutions for Tamarack members.



Delivering extensive experience where mining and global procurement intersect. 

The Tamarack Story

Tamarack is a Canadian based Group Purchasing Organization (GPO) exclusively serving the mining industry, created from a combined 50+ years of boots-on-the-ground international mining procurement and supply chain work. The experience left us with a glaring certainty – there is a better way to conduct mining procurement that benefits the industry, suppliers and the mining eco-system as a whole.


Tamarack’s vision and process is the answer to archaic, siloed and one-off procurement practices. It borrows the best of procurement innovation from other industries and is reimagined to serve the unique needs and geographies of the mining industry. This is mining procurement done differently – together, member-led, intentional and better.  Our work is data driven, member focused, and proven with measurable outcomes.
