Minerals Consultancy

Maximising value of what lies beneath the surface

At the heart of our service is a multi-disciplined team of qualified geologists, mineral property experts and surveyors who understand the real value of what lies below the ground, what is extracted and how to evaluate ‘after-use’ options to ensure an equitable outcome for landowners, operators and society.

Working seamlessly together, our Minerals Team has a proven track record of:

  • Conducting land searches, feasibility assessments and geological site investigations
  • Preparing contaminated land risk assessments, remediation options appraisals and remediation strategies
  • Calculating mineral reserve assessments
  • Option, lease and sale negotiations
  • Managing quarry designs and developments

  • Advising on post-restoration development opportunities
  • Addressing compulsory purchase mineral compensation and sterilisation issues

  • Undertaking valuations for bank security, company accounts and/or for financial and strategic planning purposes
