Earth Environmental & Geotechnical provide a wide range of Mining services, click here to contact us for further information.
Our staff have a geological background and have previously worked in the mining and minerals sector either as consultants, for international mining houses or for surface coal extraction contractors.  This work has involved us working in the UK, Eire, Africa and Asia.

Example of quarry projects we have been involved include brickworks, sandstone works, gypsum, cement works, surface coal mines, barytes, iron and sand/gravel.  Due to our knowledge of geological terrains we have provided exploration and resource advice to several operators.
