Reclamation planning is required to achieve productive post-mining land use, minimize environmental impact to be consistent with local land use policies/comprehensive plans, and meet all regulatory compliance requirements. Planning must take into consideration all aspects of the operations including mine and support areas. Reclamation is both an art and a science and should be given consideration in the earliest stages of planning and permitting to assure economic viability and environmental success. Skelly and Loy is staffed with mining engineers, hydrologists, planners, and a wide discipline of environmental scientists who possess a diverse range of reclamation planning experience for active and abandoned mine sites. We have worked with producers, regulatory agencies, and local planners in achieving reclamation goals.
