Aggregate mining consulting

Our passionate advocacy sets your aggregate mining operations up for an effective, sustainable, and profitable future.

Rapid state growth, depleted resources, and permitting and entitlement challenges are creating new obstacles in mining quality aggregate resources used to create construction materials. Even more, you face ongoing social license and community issues related to noise, dust, and encroachment that increasingly conflict with your operations. Together, these challenges impact your ability to access new sources of material, operate in a fair regulatory environment, and ultimately, create sustainable, profitable operations that set you up for long-term success.

At Haley & Aldrich, our aggregate mining consultants are trusted, passionate advisors who advocate tirelessly on your and the industry’s behalf. The goal? To ensure you have the ability to evaluate new source areas for quality aggregate materials, that these areas are subject to fair regulations and enforcements, and that your projects and operations are accepted by the communities you operate in or near.

We know successful aggregate mining consulting requires technical excellence, but some of your most difficult challenges aren’t necessarily technical. You need to successfully navigate the mining industry’s evolving, complex regulatory landscape. We’re actively involved with local, state, and federal legislation and policy making to ensure aggregate resources are readily available for infrastructure development. We work to shape a positive, sustainable future for the mining industry — even if that means proposing strategies that aren’t ideal for our own immediate business model.

Our advocacy also extends to other parts of your business. We work with stakeholders, regulatory agencies, and community organizations to minimize opposition and impact to your projects.
