SynTerra has the technical expertise and regulatory experience mining operations need.

Mining and mineral processing facilities face challenges that include continuity of operations, large land disturbances, permit requirements, and management of work safety. If land-disturbing activities will affect streams and wetlands, additional state and federal regulatory approvals are required. Permits are typically necessary for air emissions, wastewater treatment, solid or hazardous waste management, and water withdrawals.

SynTerra produces innovative, cost-effective designs for large-volume waste materials such as mine overburden, mineral processing wastes, and sludge.
