Permitting & Compliance
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 administered by local, state or provincial and Federal agencies. The complexity is compounded by the formal and informal agreements between agencies and different levels of governments and by the conflicting regulatory requirements that arise.
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.
