Mine Closure and Remediation
The combination of our internationally recognized experience in many aspects of mining with our knowledge of local requirements makes us the partner of choice for many clients embarking on mine closure projects.
Mine closure planning is necessary at all stages of a mining operation. Current best practice dictates that all mines are to be ‘designed for closure’. Closure plans and related financial securities are also required for permitting in many states. Recent changes to standards for accounting of ‚asset retirement obligations‘ have created an additional need for mine closure planning and cost estimation. We develop appropriate mine closure plans to meet project specific needs.
Implementation of closure plans begins with engineering studies, testing and monitoring that translate plans into construction drawings and specifications. Implementation then continues through procurement and construction. Our spectrum of services includes engineering, procurement and construction management as well as the delivery of complete design-build packages.
