Environment and Mining

Environment and Mining

Knight Piésold offers a full complement of environmental and social expertise, integrated with our services in mining project development.  Through all phases of mining, from exploration through operation to closure, we provide environmental and social support to ensure an expedient acquisition of all required permits.  Services include assessment of water, acid rock drainage/metal leaching (ARD/ML) potential, air, biological and social environments. 

Our environmental staff work as part of the mine design team to provide a fully integrated product, able to avoid pitfalls commonly encountered when moving through government approval processes.  Additionally, our environmental and social studies are calibrated to ensure compliance with lending institution standards, thereby expediting project financing.
