Quarry and Mining Services

Aggregates and Industrial Minerals are the foundation of modern society. An industry synonymous with not only infrastructure, but much more. These recoverable natural resources produce energy and provide crucial components in everything we touch: roads, railways, bridges, tunnels, water supply, sewers, electrical grids, televisions, phones, electric vehicles and other consumer electronics.

For nearly 40 years, natural resource clients in the construction aggregate, sand and gravel, clay, and precious mineral mining industries have turned to us because we are familiar with the unique challenges they face. We support the critical decisions associated with addressing environmental and geologic issues throughout an operation’s life cycle, including mineral prospecting, permitting, exploration, mine design and planning, development, production, closure, and reclamation.

Our team can help you make decisions that ultimately reduce life-cycle cost, improve productivity and environmental performance, reduce long-term environmental liabilities and risk exposure, simplify mine/quarry closure, and maximize post-mine land use and conversion. Our advice is informed by a deep understanding of the industry’s complex market drivers, including market value, government regulations, the need for innovative technology advances, and the importance of corporate social responsibility and social governance.
