Mine Closure Planning

blstDST provides extensive expertise towards the successful permitting of exploration and mining projects. Mine closure plans are necessary for various stages of mine development, including advanced exploration, and are required before a new project is permitted.

  • Development of Mine Closure Plan
  • Closure and monitoring of historical mine sites
  • Assistance with public and regulator consultation

  • Pre- and post- closure monitoring plans
  • Progressive rehabilitation reporting
  • Financial assurance cost estimation
