Mining companies are facing increased scrutiny from government agencies and the public.

We understand how difficult it is to navigate these regulations and public perception. We’ve been doing this for years so we know what works best. Over the last five years we have developed tools and methods that are saving miners up to 20% on environmental and engineering cost.

Streamline Engineering and Environmental Cost.

Regulatory requirements for mining are complicated and burdensome.

The regulatory requirements for mining, especially in the United States is highly complicated and burdensome. Companies have to navigate a complex set of regulations and approvals for everything from site selection, design, construction, operations, and closure.

Local communities are increasingly rejecting mining because of perceived negative environmental and economic impacts. Even though every 100 direct-mining jobs results in 390 total in-direct jobs and mining can have a small environmental impact with the proper precautions.

Regulatory compliance and environmental stewardship are critical to your success but don't actually produce revenue.
