Reclamation and Closure

From the different environments of Northwest to Central Oregon, Newton Consultants Engineers are specialists in developing innovative and cost effective reclamation and closure plans. Given our professional backgrounds, its not surprising that our engineers become involved in such a variety of mine development projects in so many places.

Reclamation and closure planning are essential components of modern aggregate exploration and development projects. Counties throughout Oregon and Washington require that reclamation and closure planning be conducted as part of the Environmental Assessment process.

Typical phases of reclamation and closure planning include:

  • Development of conceptual progressive reclamation and closure options
  • End User Planning and consulting
  • Analysis of alternatives
  • Conceptual design and feasibility studies
  • Detailed reclamation, closure and monitoring plan design

Newton’s design approach consistently strives to pair sound environmental assessment techniques with feasible reclamation objectives that all stakeholders can support.
