While we are connected through the digital world, our physical world is culturally diverse. Our team works to understand the cultural context of where we work while helping international clients achieve their goals.
Optimizing resource recovery while maximizing economic return for clients, RESPEC has significant experience in mine planning and permitting for both underground and surface-mining operations. Our professional team prepares life-of-mine, long-term, mid-range, and annual mine plans for operations around the world—from West Virginia to the Philippines to Finland. RESPEC pays close attention to every detail to ensure that our clients' production and financial requirements are met. Furthermore, we design mine plans with flexibility because we are particularly sensitive to potential commodity pricing volatility and its impact on an operation.
With a long history of assisting mining companies to obtain necessary permits, RESPEC is well-versed in local regulatory requirements in other countries, and we always integrate permitting requirements into the planning process. RESPEC professionals possess significant operational experience in management and thoroughly understand the importance of equipment selection.
RESPEC has a proven track record of working with regulatory agencies as diverse as the US Environmental Protection Agency, the US Army Corps of Engineers, and state regulatory agencies to ensure that mine plans are optimized to minimize environmental impacts. Permitting tasks have also included preparing successful Environmental Impact Statements.
