Environmental Management and Social Responsibility

GRE has developed the expertise needed to design and implement environmental protection programs that will pass rigorous review from regulators and funding institutions. However, GRE recognizes that environmental management and compliance must occur in the context of a successful mining project. GRE therefore works with clients to create an environmental management plan that works within project constraints with a minimum impact on project economic performance.


GRE has abundant experience preparing Environmental Impact Studies and in site environmental characterization. GRE frequently writes geochemistry and environmental sections of NI 43-101 reports. GRE also writes closure plans which reduce closure costs through the application of modern pollution and prevention methods and using GRE's skills in earthworks and geotechnical engineering.


Additionally, GRE team members were involved in the development stages of geofluvial reclamation designs at BHP Billition’s New Mexico Coal Operations in early 2002. They were successful in gaining approval from the Office of Surface Mining (OSM) and the New Mexico Mining and Minerals Divison (MMD) regulators. Since that time, geofluvial reclamation has evolved into one of the premier reclamation design methods with proven methods for erosion control, revegetation plant establishment, and wildlife habitat restoration.
