Mining & Quarrying

Stripping extensive areas in advance of mineral extraction often reveals buried remains relating to the historic environment. We can help from the first stages of a project, identifying potential impacts on cultural heritage through desk-based assessments, surveys and field evaluations.

We can provide an important risk management tool by quantifying your site's archaeological potential and developing creative solutions to mitigate the impact of mining and quarrying upon it. When watching briefs, trial trench evaluations or excavations are required by the planning authority, our teams will execute archaeological fieldwork to the highest professional standard to ensure minimal impact upon your budget and timetable. By working with you from pre-planning to mitigation, we can keep costs under control.
