Our experience covers energy fuels such as coal, oil sands, and uranium; base and precious metals including copper, gold and nickel; and industrial minerals such as bauxite, gypsum, phosphate and potash.
We are one of the few companies globally that offer wholly integrated services spanning the full project life cycle for the mining industry, including feasibility, environmental, regulatory and social studies; project evaluation and planning; engineering, procurement and construction management; engineering for mine infrastructure; mining operations; and closure, reclamation, and rehabilitation. In addition, we are the only North American contractor—and one of only four globally—to offer operations and maintenance services. Throughout a mine’s life cycle, our solutions are consistently safe, environmentally sound, socially responsive, and technically and economically feasible.
URS has an exemplary safety record on mining projects, and we have received mine safety awards from organizations such as the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration and Great Britain’s Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents.
