Environmental Permitting

A mining or exploration company - whether in the process of opening a mine, staying on line, suspending operations or closing a facility - is faced with the task of satisfying numerous regulatory requirements. Regulatory compliance requires a multi-disciplinary approach to developing and managing projects. SRK professionals have the skills and experience to ensure that permits are obtained in a cost and time efficient manner, following both national and international guidelines, including those established by organizations such as the World Bank.
