Our diverse group of geologists, engineers, and water resources specialists allow LA to design and manage large and complex mine permitting, operational, and reclamation projects. We have completed projects throughout the western United States and overseas. Our staff is experienced in the permitting and reclamation of hard rock and placer gold operations, open pit coal mining, bentonite and rock quarries, sand and gravel pits, and conventional and non-conventional uranium operations.

LA specializes in groundwater applications and the permitting requirements for In-Situ Recovery (ISR) and non-conventional mining. We also provide expertise in geology, reserve evaluation, geomorphology, resolution of groundwater and surface water issues, and civil engineering as they pertain to mining and energy development.

All mining projects require the acquisition of permits from local, state, and often federal agencies. We are very familiar with the permitting procedures and have successfully completed land use and mine permitting projects in most states west of the Mississippi River. Our projects typically involve environmental monitoring, reclamation planning and design, application of Best Management Practices (BMPs), preparation of contract documents, and construction administration. We assist our clients with all aspects of the permitting process including field data collection, document preparation, permit negotiation, and expert testimony. Projects are personalized to meet your needs. Please call or email us to learn how we can help you.
