Mining Geochemistry

Environmental geochemistry is an important environmental consideration in any mining project. Water quality predictions and waste rock characterization are key to permitting a new mine or mine expansion. Geochemical assessments are also critical for mitigating the source of water quality issues in existing operations and are also critical to ensuring an absence of impacts after mine closure. McGinley has experience in all aspects of environmental geochemistry at mine sites.
