MTV Environmental was engaged by a mining consultant to provide environmental and mine closure input for a confidential Project that was looking to acquire an existing mine and exploration project. The mining consultant's scope was a technical review of due diligence work already completed by another third party.
Our scope included a review of the environmental approvals and closure liabilities that had been identified for inclusion into the business case for the Project. Issues such as such as adequacy of the closure estimate were assessed, with a review of final creek diversion plans, tailings dam capping reports, and contaminated land investigations completed. Advice was also given regarding the environmental approvals likely to be required for both the Greenfield and Brownfield elements of the Project.
