Spectrum Engineering's Services

Mine Permitting

Spectrum's engineers have a proven record in permitting - having completed mining and reclamation plans for eight approved coal mine permits and a portion of a ninth. We have assisted clients with placer gold permits, and have a good working relationship with state and federal regulators. We have permitted, designed and supervised the construction of MSHA dams and impoundments, and are qualified to design and permit any type of impoundment.

Since many of the regulatory agencies use us as consultants for their abandoned mine reclamation programs, we have developed a good rapport and reputation with them.

When working on mine permit applications, we subcontract the biologic, socio-economic and cultural tasks, and perform the mine planning, reclamation, and hydrology ourselves. Since the mine design and reclamation plan are performed by the same group, we can develop a more efficient plan from both an operating and a permitting perspective.
