With the largest team of independent mineral surveyors in the UK, we support some of the biggest mineral owners including the Crown Estate, the Northumberland Estate and the Forestry Commission.
We are a well-established British company that has been delivering a unique level of service to clients for more than 180 years. We bring a wealth of in-house expertise on all aspects of mineral property – from initial geological assessment to planning applications, development and extraction and eventual restoration and after use.
Clients are also able to tap into our experience in related areas such as waste and recycling, compensation for sterilised or compulsorily acquired minerals and valuations for a range of purposes. Our team includes chartered surveyors, RICS registered valuers, geologists, and mining engineers who work to globally recognised standards.
Our people have established a reputation as trusted advisors to landowners, developers and operators by helping clients realise the value of their mineral assets. They can manage the entire project process from start to finish saving time and money and ensuring successful results.
Support for landowners includes drawing up prospecting licences, managing site investigation services and providing independent advice on site feasibility before negotiating and managing options and leases for quarries and mines. Mineral operators trust us to deliver comprehensive environmental planning services, including the provision of environmental impact assessments, and are confident in our ability to add value to their business.
