Given our widespread geographical footprint, we can provide the local expertise needed to design mine waste facilities and mine support infrastructure for your site. We will help you surmount site development obstacles related to varying geological regimes, topography, groundwater, seismicity, and climate—and overcome challenging ground conditions, whether karst, permafrost, or collapsible, expansive, or dispersive soils. Our multidisciplinary team will work with your staff to develop integrated infrastructure solutions tailored to your site’s developmental, operational, and environmental objectives.

Specifically, we solve complex geotechnical problems using advanced numerical tools to develop appropriate and cost-effective infrastructure designs. Our experienced geotechnical engineers will perform geological hazard assessments, terrain stability analyses, detailed site investigations, and rigorous numerical analyses to help select the best locations for your mine waste and support infrastructure and to minimize risk and liability.
