Mining Consulting Services

The Mining Consulting Services Group at Moody deals with all three stages of the mining process: permitting, monitoring operations, and post-mining. The permitting process is a major part of the foundation for establishing a feasible mining plan to maximize resource recovery, while maintaining environmental sensitivity. A primary aspect of our consulting services for operational mines is the maintenance of permit requirements for regulatory compliance and to establish the basis for mitigation or restoration from impacts to water resources. Moody's consulting services are also designed to provide standard and innovative practices to evaluate and mitigate post-mining conditions. To address the challenges of each stage, we bring three critical qualities to every project - experience, diligence, and thoroughness.
