Mining in the United States is highly regulated by federal and state agencies for environmental and operational compliance. These regulations, combined with the capital-intensive nature of mining and the need to plan operations for the long-term, present many challenges that require site-specific and forward-thinking engineering solutions. In addition, public perception of the mining industry is frequently unfavorable. This creates an additional need for consultants who understand both the specific issues that the industry faces and the ramifications of any actions.
