Reclamation is ecosystem repair following human activity, and is a critical aspect of sustainable human land use. IEG provides extensive mine reclamation expertise, including:
Most importantly, we assist our clients in understanding the role of reclamation in overall watershed function, and how reclamation actions contribute to larger landscape performance goals. Further, we use our expertise in community engagement and cultural research to assist with stakeholder engagement in the closure planning process and to inform reclamation objectives and indicators for achieving traditional land-use goals.
In the last five years, we have worked on over 15 mine sites in western and northern Canada, and have analyzed data from sites around the world. We provide these services both independently and as a partner with larger, multi-disciplinary teams, often working closely with O’Kane Consultants and BGC Engineering.
