Mining and Minerals

H2H Geoscience Engineering is an established geologic, engineering, and environmental consultant for the crushed stone, sand and gravel, cement, and industrial minerals mining industries around the globe. We are MSHA Part 48 Certified and experienced in conducting and managing nearly every aspect of mine permitting and planning efforts, performing minor map changes to multi-thousand acre greenfield explorations, siting, investigation, and design.

Our team of geologists and environmental experts are adept in negotiating with state and federal regulatory agencies and developing solutions that adhere to environmental regulations, and working with clients to meet their sustainability goals. We routinely perform biological, air, soil, and water testing; complete mining reclamation plans, and water management assessments; and optimize a site’s operations to make them more eco-efficient and conserve natural resources and ecosystems.

These engineering and environmental consulting services are complemented by our cutting-edge mapping services which collect large amounts of high-quality image data at a distance for use in above and underground physical inventory, reserves and quarry mapping, face updates, existing condition assessments, as-built mapping, and more.
