Environmental expertise for mining

All stages of a mines life cycle require knowledge of environmental impact based on adequate expertise. One of GTK’s strengths is having a total view of geology incorporated with the best knowledge on all aspects of mining. It allows for reliable assessment of the environmental impacts of mining. Forecasting changes, on the other hand, helps in controlling and minimizing hazardous impacts.

Knowledge of the natural changes and condition of soil, groundwater, and lake and stream sediments before commencing mining operations provide a solid basis for GTK’s environmental reports and transparent and open impact and risk assessment.
