Mining

Deeper reserves… Mining solutions ahead of change

Owning, operating, and even closing your mining facility is tougher than ever. But you can count on our diversified expertise and deep bench strength to guide you through the regulatory terrain. For decades, we’ve helped operators solve challenges and keep their focus on continuing operations and investing in new projects or expansions. We’ve helped coal, aggregate, and hardrock mining companies address both traditional and evolving challenges by using a combination of professionals with decades of direct experience in the mining world, along with the application of new technologies.

Expertise at every stage of the mining operation

Integrating civil and geotechnical engineering design with ecological and environmental expertise has led to the successful completion of a wide range of projects — from design and permitting of surface facilities such as tailings disposal areas, to the cost-effective handling and treatment of mine water, and from assessing and mitigating ecological resource impacts, to transitioning through the closure process.
