Permitting & Compliance

Permitting And Compliance by Benchmark ResourcesSuccessful permitting requires effective integration of strategy, political awareness and solid technical work. Benchmark Resources’ staff are permitting specialists. We strategically organize related permitting processes to reduce time and cost. We consider the entire operation in any permit process to coordinate the effects that one permit may have on another. We ensure that the consequences of regulations and project conditions are fully understood and acceptable to the operator.

Our mine permitting experience is diverse in the agencies with which we work, a wide geography of mine locations, and the scope of the industry served. We have worked on permits for mine quarries, waste rock disposal sites, processed ore and tailings disposal sites, in-stream aggregate harvesting, precious metal recovery plants, concrete batch plants, asphalt concrete plants, concrete and asphalt recycle plants and many other site-specific mine processes and facilities.

Benchmark Resources’ permitting capabilities encompass all of primary land use entitlements required, from the lead agency’s use permit and reclamation plan approval to permits required from agencies responsible for the management of specific environmental resources (such as air, water, vegetation and wildlife). We provide compliance reviews for operators to verify that attention to permit conditions and current regulations are not overlooked in the day-to-day business of mineral production. We also provide SMARA compliance assistance to agencies, assuring that annual inspections are appropriately focused on reclamation issues and that financial estimates are realistic and uniform.
