Base and precious metals consulting

Our nimble business model allows us to find creative solutions tailored to your needs.

You don’t need to be told that base and precious metals mining poses significant risks — especially given that the bigger the project, the greater its potential impact. Public safety, environmental concerns, permitting, timeline delays, and regulatory compliance are all top-of-mind concerns, and need to be proactively managed. You also know all too well that some of these issues can threaten to cripple your operations — and you’re doing all you can to find efficiencies to ensure that doesn’t happen. What is sometimes forgotten is that the small projects can often post disproportionately high risk, especially regarding impact on the environment.

At Haley & Aldrich, we understand the scale, complexity, and high risks inherent in base and precious metals mining. You need a partner with the experience and knowledge to ensure your employees and communities are protected, while promising the best project results. Haley & Aldrich’s precious metals engineering team has the geotechnical and hydrological expertise, as well as the mining lifecycle knowledge, to solve any challenge you might face.

Unlike big conglomerates that prioritize revenue above all else, Haley & Aldrich’s business model allows our experts to take a nimble, flexible approach. Because of that, our precious metals engineering, mining, and geotechnical experts can quickly and easily adapt, and more freely seek creative solutions to your problems. And we don’t innovative for the sake of innovating — but rather, so we can introduce efficiencies to the complex base and precious metals mining lifecycle.
