MINING

In addition to our general reclamation services, our team is able to provide specific mining related services.

GEOCHEMICAL CHARACTERIZATION OF WASTE ROCK AND MINE TAILINGS

A geochemical understanding of your waste material can greatly improve the ability to manage the waste to reduce the production of impacted leachate and improve reclamation success. Rapid field assessment techniques and statistically based sampling and analytical techniques can greatly improve the quality of data for decision making.

GEOCHEMICAL ASSESSMENT OF SURFACE WATER AND GROUNDWATER

The geochemistry of surface and groundwater is dependent on understanding the reactions between water sources and soil and rocks that this water comes in contact with. Understanding these reactions can help in developing effective monitoring programs at a reduced cost.

SOIL BORROW MATERIAL ASSESSMENT AND QUANTIFICATION

Soil Science is critical in evaluating soil material as borrow material for various uses of mine sites, including cover material in reclamation. Our in-house sampling equipment allows for cost effective sampling and mapping of these areas.

HYDRAULIC ASSESSMENT OF SOILS

Designing any storage facility requires an understanding of the hydraulic properties of materials beneath these facilities. Our team of soil hydrologists can collect appropriate data regarding hydraulic conductivity using our disc permeaters and other equipment.

MINE RECLAMATION

Obtaining growth on coarse, low organic material can be challenging. Our soil scientists and geochemists are experienced in developing reclamation strategies in these environments that include bio-engineering techniques to manage highly erosive and steep slopes and amendment selection that ameliorates low pH and high metal material. Working with our sister company H2 Enterprises, we are able to implement effective reclamation to expedite bond release and manage environmental liabilities.
