Mining

Wenck houses a diverse group of geologists, engineers, ecologists, and water resources specialists that allow us to design and manage large and complex mine permitting, operational, and reclamation projects. We have completed projects throughout the western United States and overseas. Our staff is experienced in the permitting and reclamation of hard rock and placer gold operations, open pit coal mining, bentonite and rock quarries, sand and gravel pits, and both conventional and non-conventional uranium operations. Wenck can also provide expanded, comprehensive services to include wetland delineation, air quality investigations and permitting, RCRA Phase I and Phase II, document preparation, expert testimony, as well as SPCC permits. We specialize in groundwater applications and the permitting requirements for In-Situ Recovery (ISR) and non-conventional mining, utilizing our expertise in geology, reserve evaluation, geomorphology, resolution of groundwater and surface water issues, as well as civil engineering as they pertain to mining and energy development. Our team of experts will work with you on all aspects of resource development while meeting the regulatory and environmental requirements of your mining project. 

The Wenck team’s mining solutions were cultivated from a long history of collaborating with top industry contacts in the field, in addition to actively participating with organizations such as American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG), National Ground Water Association (NGWA), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), American Water Works Association (AWWA), as well as the General Services Administration (GSA). Let us know how we can help you mine a better planet.
