The global demand for natural resource development is growing at an unparalleled pace. The mining industry is faced with numerous, unprecedented challenges as it continues to expand its markets and comply with increasingly complex and costly regulatory requirements. E & E provides the services mining companies need to meet these challenges.
E & E and our global subsidiary companies, including ECSI, LLC and Gustavson Associates, LLC, have been working in the mining industry for over forty years. With this vast experience, our multidisciplinary team knows how to meet project schedules and avoid unnecessary costs by resolving complex technical, social and environmental concerns. In creating a plan for a mineral development project, E & E conducts reserve valuations, baseline ecological surveys, feasibility studies of proposed mining operations and a full range of environmental assessment, environmental studies and engineering activities.
Our team of experts has both the experience and relationships that help promote fast-track project permitting. We are able to implement cost-effective solutions that maintain the integrity of natural resources while maximizing growth and profitability. At E & E, we address all facets of mine permitting. Our mining experience encompasses environmental impact analysis of gold, silver, copper, borax, uranium, coal, and oil-shale mining processes in hundreds of locations throughout the United States and in over 30 countries around the globe.
