Compliance support for mining operations from feasibility through closure

Mine sites are subject to environmental regulations that require monitoring and data management. M&A offers a range of solutions to simplify the process of meeting compliance and reporting obligations. We also have tools for optimizing data collection efforts to ensure clients allocate resources as cost-effectively as possible.

M&A also provides support for the following:

  • Aquifer protection: characterization, monitoring, and hydrogeologic report preparation for regulatory agencies. We have extensive experience helping clients meet the requirements of Arizona’s Aquifer Protection Permit (APP) program.
  • Mine closure: regulatory compliance and remediation. We can also predict post-closure conditions, including the formation and passive containment of pit lakes.


  • Characterizing hydrogeologic and water quality conditions
  • Identifying regulatory requirements and options for obtaining permits and approvals; designing and administering programs to satisfy permitting requirements
  • Designing monitoring programs and data acquisition systems
  • Relaying monitoring data to users in real time using telemetry systems
  • Developing graphical data presentations and reports
  • Preparing compliance documents, permit applications, and supporting documents
  • Training mine staff on compliance activities
