Mining Engineering

We develop economically and technically feasible solutions to the most challenging mine development and reclamation projects and sites.  Our services begin with resource evaluation, where we delineate mineral deposits and help develop effective recovery processes.  We offer planning and permitting services that include establishing background conditions and identifying potential environmental concerns early in the planning process.  Our development services include providing geotechnical investigation and design recommendations for:

  • Regional and site geology 
  • Subsurface soil and rock
  • Pit slope and spoil pile stability
  • Rockfall analysis and bench design
  • Quarry, haul, and access roads
  • Railroad rights-of-way and conveyor routes
  • Dikes and dams
  • Sedimentation ponds
  • Building foundations
  • Tunnels and underground facilities
  • Blasting and seismic recommendations
  • Dewatering design

We also perform compliance monitoring, reclamation design, evaluation of acid-generation potential, and stormwater management plan development.
