Helping clients throughout the West overcome hurdles to not just successfully develop, operate and reclaim a mine, but also realizing strategic market opportunities and advantages. In a high profile and often contentious industry, we guide clients through complex regulations, sensitive stakeholder issues and stringent oversight from federal, state and local agencies.
Brownstein’s Mining team has worked on every aspect of mine development and operation. Our attorneys and policy professionals bring a track-record of success in Congress, the courtroom and before administrative. Together, we assist you with corporate needs—acquisition and disposition of mining properties, mergers and acquisitions and finding the most efficient bonding mechanisms. We also help you obtain water rights for operations and permitting and guide you through the complex National Environmental Policy Act and Endangered Species Act regulatory systems. Our goal is to help you mitigate risk and overcome any obstacles to mine development and operation.
